My ride yesterday....

Post by Miss G on Thu Feb 09, 2012 5:56 pm

Me and 2 buds took off a little after 7 yesterday morning and took the back roads to Montgomery to Hank Williams grave. What an awesome cemetery! The oldest born date we saw was 1728. Lots of civil war era stones. We took a leisurely pace....and ended the day with 428 miles as of 8:30 last night. cheers

I do know a few of my friends are planning a run to Florala to see one of the 13 Ghosts of AL sites soon-ish. As the details get set, I'll let y'all know!

Monday the 20th (Presidents Day) me and a fellow gov't empl are planning a run to MS for lunch...probably The Shed. Will be determined by how cold it is. What a Face

Wow I forgot which of the 13 ghosts is in Florala. Another of the 13 ghosts is an ancestor of mine. His name is Gunther Harrison.

Have fun going to the Shed, the one in MS is always a good meal.

29 most of the way and going back we took 21 to 10 to Evergreen and picked up 31 there. Wonderful roads and some sweet curves and beautiful areas.

Indeed I was, Jack! Well...closer, might be a better word. How far are you from M'gomery?

I ate at The Shed in MS for the first time last Sunday. I looooove BBQ and especially the GOOD stuff! Their pulled pork was like eating cotton candy it was so tender. The ribs were really good too.

Wow! I really was close! For some reason, I thought you lived a bit further north. Rolling Eyes Guess that shows why I'm not paid to think. tongue

I'm waiting on a riding buddy of mine and his daughter to finish a cold air test ride. She has to go back to Tuscaloosa today and we would ride half way or so with her. Brrrr.....this could be interesting. It did finally make it into the 40's. Rolling Eyes

No. I didn't even go that way...and I just heard. Sad At least I got to go before that happened. There's one in Mobile....guess I'll go try it sometime...

Today I rode 227 miles in the freezing @$$ cold.... Haven't stopped smiling...or wishing I'd thaw. tongue
