Jolly Ride-to-Eat and Ride
En route to Yalaha Bakery, I stopped at US-301 and Florida State Road 50.
While I was getting coffee, a Yellow Strom showed up, ridden by Larry.
(This Larry is not the member Axeman, whose welcome post is just above.)
Larry chanced upon me while en route also to the Bakery.
At the Yalaha Bakery, just before noon, Larry and I met Dave.
We had lunch, the best part of which was the conversation.
Then I led part way to the Carney Conservation Area, getting us lost
only twice. My fault, because I had abbreviated my maps too much,
and they were inadequate to the unfamiliar terrain & my small brain.
No fear, because Dave took the lead at a planned junction,
and led us to our destination. There is a fee to enter the area,
so we made a U-turn and sought some ice cream, which we enjoyed.
Dave led Larry and me to Highway 301, where he went north and we south.
By and by Larry and I parted, and I found my way home.
338 miles for me, and a successful outing, much enjoyed.
I will organize another ride like this, and hope for more company.
