Well, this past Friday, April 13, I decided that after I got all my required items taken care of I would hit the road for a nice trip. I mapped out where I wanted to go on Furkot and hit the road. It turned out to be a great day, with temps that only just approached the upper 70’s (I think 78 was the high). The short story was to ride to Rabbit Hash, KY and get some BBQ, then on to Aurora, IN for a drink at Great Crescent Brewery and on down to Madison, IN and a milkshake at Hinkle’s and then head towards home and depending on the time stop at another microbrewery.
Well, the BBQ place isnt open for the season yet, so I got a creme soda from the General Store. Tasted a few nice beers at Great Crescent (not full pints, mind you) and headed back down the road towards Madison. Once at Hinkle’s I grabbed a couple burgers (slider sized) and some fries and a milkshake. Between getting started later than I wanted to and getting stuck doing a detour due to a bridge being out in Vevay, IN, when I left Madison I decided to forgo the final brewery tasting and head towards the house via the new bridge. On the way home, I stopped at the wine store and grabbed a couple bottles for the weekend and then went to the house.
All in all, it was 211 miles over a leisurely 6 hours (including stops).
