We left Muskegon, MI about 8am in the heat. Heading south and east through Michigan farm country. The heat kept building all day and as we approached Mansfield, Ohio I could see that the road had a wet look to it. The temperature really started to drop at that point which felt really good! Apparently, we had just missed a small thunderstorm that had moved through the area. We arrived at the track/swap meet area about 3:30pm local time and set up our tents. This would be our basecamp for the next two and one half days. Our neighbors next door were a couple of Gold Wing riding brothers from Kentucky that were the same age we are and we spent a couple hours that night entertaining each other with stories about growing up riding motorcycles and the shennigans that came with it. More to come.
