|Smooth roads, wide shoulders, little traffic, blue sky and light winds......|
We had the opportunity to see two Amish farmers bailing a straw or hay field. Its incredible that their subsistence and way of life is accomplished with these basic tools and horsepower. Quite a commitment. Makes you consider what is really important.
We have two women riders on the tour, Pat and Cindy, that live in this area and are avid sky divers. Somehow they persuaded two of our British riders, Nick and John to come out to their local sky diving airport and go for a tandem jump. Well, Michele and I had to go see what all this was about so after the ride we drove out to Ovid Airport. Here are some photo's that try to capture the pre-jump situation.

Unfortunately, things were delayed a little and Michele and I had to leave but I'm sure we'll hear the news tomorrow morning about Nick and John's great adventure. Stay tuned, I'm sure there will be some very interesting stories.
