    Indiana bound. The home town of Jimmy Stewart. His statue is in the middle of town and difficult to get a picture of if you are on a bike.

    Murals instead of JS.

    There was a rat between these 2 murals but there was a guy sitting in his car so I passed on that one.

    Getting close to the rally site.

    Air washing my clothes. The last hotel didn't have a laundry.

    I hope the water today doesn't reach this level. Sometime in the night I woke up and it was pouring. As I listened to the rain for 15 minutes or so it sounded like the volume kept getting turned up. I went back to sleep when the volume hit 12.

    A LFL in Fox twp park. Met a former rider there and donated my BMW magazines to him as he had an RT years ago. He said he will donate them to the LFL when he is done with them.

    Watching Enterprise years ago T'Pol spoke about the first time the Vulcans visitted Earth. They landed in Pa. I THINK THIS WAS THE AREA!

    There is another alien on the otherside of the sat dish.

    Congratulations on retirement! I'm also very fortunate to be able to retire. I recently saw a t shirt that describes my retirement,

    Took a meandering route to the Kinzua Bridge.

    Outlaw LFL. I spotted something as I rode by and when I turned around I found it was a shed but behind the church was this outlaw. 20210820_110706.jpg

    About 230 feet straight down. I think that would give you a bit of a headache.

    Zippo Car. I have been to the museum before so I didn't go in this time. I wanted a picture of the Zippo Car.

    A couple of longtime employees.

    A couple of bikers showed up prior to my departure from the bridge. And the one's tank had some nice paint on it.

    The gov has the right idea but in the wrong order in my opinion. But what the hell do I know. 20210820_134048.jpg
