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.
Tally:
10 hours in the saddle
426 miles.
Loads of memories, new and old!

Wow, 21 different places to have lived. I've only been resident in 2. You have an interesting ADV going.
Let us know if the saying, "You can never go home again." is true.
