Up early this morning and got around to leave about 7:20 AM after calling Julie Gray Crotty to let her know we were leaving. She headed out to meet us a Sugar Creek by Longway's Diner to escort us back into St. Lawrence County.
We got to Sugar Creek just seconds behind Julie and come to find out just minutes ahead of the rain. After coffee, which Julie tipped over hers and after Susie finding her sunglasses that were hanging on her helmet, we took off for home.
Weeeeellllll it started raining real soon and buy the time we got to Philly Fuels Julie made a good move and pulled in. We put our bikes under the porch roof and got some coffee. We decided it wasn't going to quit real soon so got geared up and off we went. Today was the longest stretch of riding in the rain since we left on August 1st.
We had fun though, of course it is always fun when Susie and Julie get together. There is just something that makes them a little bit nuttier than usual. OH and they found a pole too.LOL!!!!
We got home around 11:00 AM and Julie headed home to get dried out. We both thank Julie for the welcome escort back even though she knew she would probably get wet.
We also thank Gena Jones for the welcome back horn blowing when she went by as we were unloading the Harley.
All in all it was a great trip. I just got off the phone with my brother Danny in Kentucky and he asked if we had it to do all over again what would we change. My answer was, "Have 6 months instead of 1 month." I am thankful though that things came together so we could take the 1 month.
Thanks to all that commented on the blog, on facebook, and by contacting family. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and good wishes. Thanks to Hoot for the Guardian Ride Bell and to Wayne for the St. Christopher pins. We travelled a total of 7,891 miles and arrived safe back in De Kalb.
By the way......................... the sun is shining now. :^)
