It is time for the old Winnie to move on and make another family happy!  She still has a lot of life left in her.

Here is Matt and Lesa getting ready to leave North Olmsted and take the Winnie to Texas.


Toodles rode with Matt and Lesa.



I followed them to the Cincinnati area.  We stopped at East Fork State Park and spent two nights there.  We had a FANTASTIC time.  We walked and walked and walked.  We had nice fires.  We ate well (thank you Lesa). 


Our first walk was supposed to be maybe 500 feet.  Matt was wearing flip-flops and I was barefoot in my moccasins.  At least Lesa wore shoes.  We went six (6) miles.  That was STUPID!  Both Matt and I affected our feet.  Luckily not so bad for the rest of our walks.

The reason this picture is blurry is that we were walking in near dark conditions.  This is not even close to how much light we were seeing.  In the woods in the dark .. walking.

They had horses camping here, lots of horses.

We did have a driver's side rear brake problem when one of the calipers hung up just after arriving at the park.  The GPS took us down some tiny country roads.  That necessitated a lot of brake action.  After lifting, lubing and freeing up the caliper we drove the whole park campground.  Wait.  We missed a couple!




Never mind that bottle of Jack Daniels Honey and the wine on the table.  Don't look at that.


We took a couple of walks down a paved bicycle/all purpose trail to the lake.  Lot of birds!  We saw an older man sitting on a stool he had brought with a VERY old beagle.  Later, we found he was running four other beagles.  They came up and said hello, but not for long as the bunnies were calling them.
