Barney’s enjoying the
ride. Rt 20 just north of
Some more scenery and turns on Rt 20.

And, of course, Barney. Always flirting with the ladies!!
I met up with a friend for lunch, and before we went exploring, we had to enjoy a burger and pie! Rella always has several home-made pies in the fridge. Today’s special was butterscotch. Barney definitely approved!! That’s Rella in the background.
Going back to August for a few minutes now….
In August, about 30-35 riders met at Rella’s
for lunch one day to show our support for her daughter Jeaneace,
who was in the hospital at the time.
Needless to say, seating was at a premium. Rella
is a very popular lady with the Adventure Rider Forum riders. We had guys/gals
There are only about 7 or 8 tables, so you had better get here early unless you want to eat on the floor. Which, you could probably do. Rella keeps a CLEAN house, and notice how she has little tennis balls on the bottom of each chair leg so they don’t scratch the floor!
Hi Rella! She’s busy cooking for our group of 30+ back in August.
She’s a Great-Grandmother and still cooks here 7 days a week from 7am – 7pm.
Homemade meatloaf, potato salad, and fresh green beans. Home cookin’!
Or, you can have a burger and fries.

Of course, you have to save room for pie!

OK, back to last weekend.
After lunch, my
friend “Duck” and I rode west from

the view. This road stretches for about
15 miles from
Always looking for a photo opportunity, I asked my friend to take a picture of me riding back up the hill. (Same location as previous photo) Too bad you can’t hear Barney yelling, “Faster! Faster!” It was hard enough keeping up with Duck on his Suzuki 650!
Soon, we reached Hanging Rock. This marker explains it all.
Look closely, and you can see my motorcycle parked along the road under the Hanging Rock.
Duck is standing just across the road from it, too, to give perspective.

Falls Mill was our last stop. Located on Rt 19 about 10 miles northeast of Flatwoods.
Barney says it’s time to head home. It wasn’t a long ride today (only 160 miles),
but it was very relaxing and interesting. Hope you enjoyed it as much as Barney and I did!
Thanks for joining us!
