Sept 7th - IL to Cambridge, OH

We left Troy at 6 a.m. to ride over to Collinsville, Illinois for breakfast at the VFW....the ladies of the auxillary very kindly worked hard on an excellent breakfast.

Unfortunately we stayed 10 minutes and were on the road by 6:30 a.m. for a 500 mile ride to Cambridge, Ohio. We were trying to ride ahead of the storm....which I am happy to say was a success.

We arrived at the designated meeting place 2 hours early and visited with other riders as they came in. We had a fire department escort from the Zanesville Love station to Cambridge on I-70. We finished the ride with a gathering at the Walmart and a presentation by several people.

Clark picked up Kathy at the Columbus airport. Steve, Dennis and Mark got in early enough to check in at the motel, get cleaned up and take a nap!

Les Knauer and his wife made it to the ride. We also met Dave and Naomi who live east of Columbus, Ohio and had just heard about Torches Across America. What a nice surprise!

On to Virigina!
