Today is Day 3 of our 13-day vacation. We are traveling to Eureka Springs, AR to attend the annual Vulcan Riders and Owners Club (VROC) Reunion rally.
Bob awakened at 4:30 this morning, which is normal for him as this is the time he awakens in the morning to get ready for work. I stayed in bed until 5:45 am. I was showered and dressed by 6:30 am. We ate breakfast at 7:00 am. We each had a cheese omelet, one waffle and a Danish pastry. In addition I had an orange juice and a banana. Bob drank coffee, and I drank hot tea.
It was a chilly morning. It was only 46 degrees in Greenfield IN at 7:30 this morning. I checked the weather in Central City, KY – what will be today’s final destination. The high temperature will be in the low 70s. Bob said he is happy that he has chaps to wear, while riding.
We met up with some VROC friends at the Speedway gas station at Exit 96 on I-70 (one exit west of Greenfield IN) for a 3-day group ride to Eureka Springs, AR .
We departed the Speedway gas station at 9:45 am, en route Central City, KY via New Salisbury, IN. We would pick up two more riders in New Salisbury, IN.
We made one fuel stop on the way to New Salisbury, IN.
We arrived at Jim and Katie A.’s house around 12:45 pm.
We were back on the road about 30 minutes later, with Jim and Katie riding with us. Not quite 3 weeks ago, Jim had a heart attack. It was wonderful that Jim and Katie could ride with us!
We stopped for lunch at Subway in Brandenburg, KY.
We made a rest stop at the Dollar General in Fordsville, KY.
From Fordsville we rode to Central City, KY, arriving there around 5:00 pm Central time.
Today’s route is displayed in the map shown below.
We drove 263 miles today.
We checked into the Best Western Plus Venture Inn. We have a two queen room. It is spacious and nicely furnished. The bathroom is larger than the ones we have had the past two nights.
We ate dinner at El Bracero, a Mexican restaurant located next door to the hotel. Bob and I ordered taco salads, with beef.
Dinner was delicious!
