Trip to Davis, Oklahoma


Saturday we took a trip with some friends to Davis, Oklahoma. Davis is in the southern part of the state near the Arbuckle Mountains. There were eleven bikes and 14 riders. The trip there was long, and hot. About 3 1/2 hours, and 94 degrees. I'm so smart that I didn't put sunscreen on until we got to the lake. Very good. We stopped at Nat and Kelly's lake house and grilled chicken and hot dogs. The lake is very beautiful, and unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of it. On the way home, we decided to hit I-35 and get home a little sooner. It wasn't too crowded and was actually a nice ride. Except for the hot asphalt and my sunburn. All in all it was a good weekend ride.
It was the only riding I got to do on my week off. I have really been neglecting the farm since all of this motorcycling business got started and it was time to do some much needed work. The good news is, it's mostly in shape now. That means on my next weekend off, I'll be able to ride! Yea!

You sound like me. I always have sunscreen on the bike but so far this year I've only remembered to put it on once. That wouldn't be so bad but I've already ridden over 9,000 miles this year. I get the "you've got coon eyes" all the time.

Yes, I came to work yesterday morning and was asked if I'd been skiing. Really? In June, in Oklahoma? I don't think so....
