I started my Saturday seeing the family off to the in-laws. Did a few house chores. Fiddled about. Decided to go for a ride, so I ate a quick breakfast. Threw some PB and bread in the bags, and headed out around 10:30am.
It was a "that road looks good" kind of ride. No plans to start with. Opting more than not to take the smallest road in front of me. I accidentally found the Ohio Caverns, and Indian Lake, and some really cool scenery. 4 hours later I was up in my home town. Normally this is only about 80 miles, but I had close to 180 miles already.
Sitting in the park I decided I should visit all of the Ohio homes I have had. So while I enjoyed my snack I concocted a plan. I figured I have lived in 21 different locations and 8 different towns. 4 are local to my current home and I have been by them, so that left 17 places to visit.
Forest, Kenton, Arlington, Wharton, Findlay, Columbus Grove, Fort Shawnee, Lima, and starting and finishing in Beavercreek. Now I did stop in Lima to visit my mom and step dad. They took me out to dinner.
I covered a lot of backroads between Beavercreek, London, Findlay, and Celina on this ride.
All said and done I pulled back into my drive at around 11:30pm.
10 hours in the saddle
Loads of memories, new and old!
