Well, CRAP. Bill! Are you nuckin' futz??? Sheesh! Now I feel bad that I
missed the awesome ride in Indiana. Ah, well, Miss Kathy and I went
exploring Southeast Ohio after I did the toxic waste drop-off on Saturday
morning. What kind of burg only lets you drop your toxic waste and empty
propane cylinders one day each year??? We had a fun day, met some new
friends, and learned how close we are, again, to some really nice state
highways. We were supposed to check out Rt. 555 but I guess I'll get to
that this weekend or next. We live about 30 miles from it, so I'm pretty
Glad you made it home safely, and even more pleased that the ride was so
Paul in Ohio
