Weekend in Ohio – Day 2

We departed Wooster OH en route the Whispering Hills Jellystone Park Camp-Resort  at 10:30 am. It took less than ½ hour to reach the campground. We were able to check into our cabin early.

Our accommodation for 2 nights was Cabin 6B. Our deluxe cabin sleeps 6. There is a full bathroom, kitchenette, electric, running water, air conditioning (and heat), mini refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, towels and bed linens, dinnerware and utensils, outside grill (propane), fire pit, picnic table, and sliding swing on a covered porch.  Here are a couple photographs that I took inside of the cabin.

If you read my previous blog post, the purpose of our weekend in Ohio is to attend the Central Ohio Vulcan Riders and Owners Club (VROC) motorcycle rally.  Soon after arriving at the campground we joined our VROC friends at the West Terrace. We left for a ride at noon. Those riding were Brad, in the lead and our rally host, Bruce , Chris and Linda, Joe and Shirley and Bob and I.  We enjoyed a nice, scenic ride.

While at the stop shown in the photograph displayed above, Bruce was concerned that his bike chain might be too tight.  We were very close to Brad’s house at this stop, so we went there (where he had tools).

He opened the garage, and we rode in.
Bruce loosened a chain on his bike.

When we left Brad’s house, en route the campground, the rain had stopped. The rain started to fall, though, soon after we left. None of us had put on rain gear. It was a wet ride back to the campground. We relaxed at the cabin, drying out, until dinner time. Our friends did the same inside their tents.

We ate dinner at the campground cafe. Most of our VROC friends did the same.  Bob had a Philly steak sandwich with potato salad. I had a cheeseburger with potato salad. We shared dessert, an apple dumpling with ice cream.  We spent rest of the evening sitting around a campfire talking, reminiscing, and laughing.

Oh, I almost forgot.  Have you heard of the ALS ice bucket challenge?  The ice bucket challenge is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone’s head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research.   The challenge encourages nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same. A common stipulation is that nominated participants have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.  I filmed such an ice bucket challenge at our Central Ohio VROC rally.
