Friday morning started off absolutely perfect weather wise. It was about 70 degrees with plenty of blue skies and sunshine. Our plan was too hook up with two other topless HAMB guys at the intersection where the highways we were each traveling on intersected. OldBobSign and I waited less then 5 minutes at the top of the entrance ramp for FMS427 in his Shoebox ragtop and Lurker Doug in his 37, to blow by. We fell in line behind them and ran the highway for about 1 hour till we crossed in Ohio then ran two laners from then on out. Cookies were passed out at the gas stops Stan, AKA FMS427 and his lovely wife Ann Doug, hes a lurker on the HAMB. Hopefully after his great time at the Cinematic hell register and become a productive member. About lunchtime we found ourselves in Mansfield so I called my good pal Hammer Hank and asked him to suggest a place for lunch and meet us there. They had pretty good burgers and it was really nice to sit and chat with everyone. It was the first time actually meeting Stan and Doug in person. Stan deciding which way to take next Nothing was set in stone as far as a route for us went. Stan had traveled the area many years for work and knew the coolest, most scenic routes for us to take. Hammer Hank lead the way out of town on his bike then bid us farewell. Hes building a RPU and didnt have the time to take off to join us at the Cinematic for the weekend. Next year Im sure will be a different story. Wasnt long before we were on the most awesome twisty, turny roads. You know the kind .the ones that put your stomach in your throat when you come over the crest. I had no clue Ohio had roads like that. Im use to the flat, straight cornfield roads like in the upper half. My only fear in running those roads were the Amish people and their buggys and sure enough we came up on one. Thankfully it was on flatter ground and we had warning. Rolled into Gallup-police (in case anyone was wondering how most locals pronounce it) around 7pm. A few hours longer then it would have normally taken running the freeways but WELL WORTH the extra time and effort. Id like to extend a very special thanks to Stan for leading the way and choosing some of the most scenic two lanes Ive been on in a long time. It was certainly a treat meeting you, your wife and Doug and having the opportunity to run south together. Im looking forward to hanging out with you guys again in the near future.
