Grand ride, Grand Rapids

      While riding down the White Pines trail we ran into a couple of guys,  John, and Ray , that we know from Fl. And they saw Dick Marr so we got a hold of him and met for a ride on the Millennium park trails, Johnson park trail, and Kent's trail, along with some streets around Grand Rapids.  Thanks to Dick knowing his way around made for a wonderful 38 mile ride.  This is an area where we'll have to explore further.  Lakeside Camp Park was one of the cleanest well maintained campgrounds we've seen so we'll base out of there when we do.
      On the drive south we decided to stop at the RV museum in Elkheart IN. Lots of history and examples of RV's through the years. They've come a long way since the beginning way back in the early 1900s.
      Now back in what feels like a second home in Yellow Springs OH. Sitting here in the Emporium enjoying an organic Columbian coffee, with our camper parked at Bass Lake cg a nice wake me up 10 mile bike ride from here, with 6 miles on the roads and 4 miles on the Little Miami River trail.
Plan is to head south around the 19th. Lots to do once home.
      Again, thanks Dick Marr for the guided tour of the Grand Rapids area and making for a superb day of riding.

  1. Ahhhh....Yellow Springs always seems to be on your route. Someday Ruth and I will return to enjoy the Little Miami Trail. Right now we are planning our return south. The weather here is still great, we did 25 miles today with an ice cream stop in Dallas Center. Still sweet corn and tomato season here and we are eating our fill.
