Drove 997.8 miles from Brunswick Maine to Jim Denker's in Kettering Ohio in 13 hours Thursday September 20th. Met up with my friend Dohn Roush at the US Air Force Museum in Dayton Ohio Friday, What an amazing collection of planes! Then Jim and I caravanned to a gas station to meet up with other Rivertown Gearbusters. After everyone showed up we were off to Sabbath Song Farm In Brooksville Kentucky. Jason Gipson set a brisk pace on the winding back roads which were an absolute delight to drive at speed. We arrived at Sabbath Song Farm at dusk and were greeted with a hot meal and shared stories of our adventures.
Saturday was the actual Ridge Run a 120+ mile counter clockwise loop of fantastically winding 55 mile an hour roads, spent most of the day in 3rd and 4th gear trying to keep up with Jason. It was challenging and fun driving Vern at 8/10ths, my tires were the real limiting factor. When it started raining, I pulled back considerably so I wouldn't have a 'moment' or close call with losing traction as I have been there done that.
Had such a great time with everyone, so wonderful to spend quality time with my Ohio, Indiana, Illinois & Kentucky friends known as the Rivertown Gearbusters.
