Derby Escape 2015 – Red River Gorge, Slade, KY.

Posted on Updated on

IMG_3026This past weekend was the (soon to be annual) Derby Escape ride down to Sky Bridge Station in Red River Gorge.  We had riders from 3 different states join up; Kentucky, Indiana and Texas.  Yep, we had a guy ride up from Galviston, TX to ride around the Gorge and then head home.  Retirement must be nice…  Along on the ride were 4 NC700X’s, a Honda Rebel and a Suzuki SV650.  There were more NCs there than I have seen in one place together since I got mine.  It was great.  Now, I also got video, but have not processed it yet.  It will probably be short, as I have posted this particular ride before, but there are a couple neat features we had this time over last.

Abandoned – Country house in the city.

IMG_3017Friday after work I needed to run a few errands and stop by my parents’ house to pick up some paperwork.  As they live in Prospect, I decided to take a different route home than I normally take and run down Wolf Pen Branch road.  It is a zig-zag of a road in the north eastern part of Jefferson County on the outskirts of Louisville.  There is a definite yin and yang of houses along this road as you head east.  You can pass by a mufti-million dollar mansion and across from it will be barely a hovel.  Well, I caught a glimpse out of the corner of my eye of a for sale sign and in the background this large white house in the middle of a field.  Even from the road it looked abandoned.  I turned around and turned in and decided to take a couple photos.  Neat little find on the edge of a populated city.

There is another photo after the break.
