Hello Yellow Brick Road

If all goes according to plan, I'm off to a family reunion in the Hoosier state followed by The Touring Ride in Rural Indiana, a weeklong ramble through cornfields by day and, perhaps, a ramble through few amber waves of beer by night.

Our own Forum member Monoborracho will add 50+ Strength and Stability to a field of about 350. I'm looking forward to meeting him--and to checking in with you all down the road.

Now a parting word
Keep your multi-tools ready
And write more haiku

Enjoy the reunion, ride and ramble through the amber waves of beer. Sounds like a great time!

Goin' back to the plow, Jet? Back to the horny-back toad?

Have a great reunion, and a safe ride! <wavin'>

As fortune would have it, my last order of bike stuff before TRIRI arrived today..containing a brand new Topeak Alien II that has one of everything (except a pair or pliers) on it. This is to replace the assortment of allen wrenches, chain breaker, Leatherman, and small crescent wrench that I've toured with in the past.

The Fuji was packed and sent last week. Today it is safe, sound, and reassembled at the bike shop in Indianapolis, where I expect to be reunited with it on Sunday morning, complete with a new rear trunk rack.

I'm sure there is BF story in the future somewhere.

I see you will be around Brown County State Park, and Nashville IN. Beautiful area of Indiana. It will be hilly, but you are probably used to it. The Nashville House was a great place to eat when I used to go there years ago.

Have fun. Sounds like a great ride.
