As we get to the new part of I-40 the traffic is almost to a stand still. They had all the lanes closed down but one, as they were busy putting up the new signage on the road. We pull into the Conoco to meet up with the rest of the group. Allen is there, and he introduces us to Judy. Just hope she can handle this group. :) Tom must have gotten a different email from the rest of us, as he was at BassPro as we drove by. Poor Tom, I know he isn't a morning man. We get our gas, and much to my surprise, here comes a bike that we all recognize. The Alvey's have come to ride with us. So nice to see them. Since Steve had his knee and foot operated on, wasn't sure when he would be able to make it back on the bike. So glad they could make it.
We get by, and everyone else made it by safely. Seems like there is always someone out to try to spoil our fun. As we pull into Pawnee, looks like there are quite a few cars at Click's. I go in and give them our name, and the girl says it will be a while. We are used to that, but it really wasn't a very long wait at all. Got to check out those awesome pies as we walked by on our way to our seats. They have an "all you can eat" on Sunday, and we opted for that. It was great as usual. As we sat and talked, that red car came up in conversation. Everyone was so busy making sure they weren't getting run over by it, and none of us ever looked at the driver. Still have no idea if it was a guy or girl. Food was really good, and we had a great time talking and laughing.
Tom posted that we rode around 200 miles today, so I will use his mileage. I always say this, but I really do enjoy our times with these people. Let's do it again really soon.
The Biggs and us ended up at Tao's for some tea. Sat there and drank some bubbles. Pei wasn't there today, but we enjoyed the time to talk. As we head home I got a couple of pics of the sunset. It was really pretty tonight. Looked like the sky was on fire. Great end to the day we had.
