Our first main stop was for breakfast and we decided to honor our friend Chris Cutlip by stopping in Athens, OH - home of Ohio University. The last time I was there was during our college days, and, well, needless to say it was not the healthiest of times as far as the liver and chemicals went......but I digress
Breakfast was enjoyed at the Cross Street Diner in downtown Athens. We had a brief tour through town and got back onto 50 to continue on towards Cincinnati. Heather came through with some great video shots - the last one from Indian Hill Road which is only 5-10 miles from where Kurt lives. If this stretch of road doesn't force you into a motorcycle purchase, I do not know what will....
Kurt and Jen (and Della and Sampson) played hosts for our stay in Cinci - we had an ungodly amount of ribs for dinner followed by more ribs and other delicious sides (Mac & cheese, etc.). And, as you know, when in the company of pure genius (Kurt Bonigut), you need only to sit back and listen to his vision. This normally includes bouts of pure psychosis, rage, peace, and, eventually, focused chaos. We were not disappointed. I was able to take both Kurt and Jen for quick ride on the bike. I have a weight and height limit for a rider now - it is 265 lbs and 7'-18". Too much man for the back of the bike, although I think I got my front wheel off the ground shifting from first to second with Kurt on the back.
We are onto St. Louis in the morning.....
