We had a nice strong (up to 20 MPH) south wind blowing when I hooked up with Terry at 7:30. We hammered it straight into the wind for 25 miles down to White Rock Lake. At the lake we hooked up with Dave DeSosa. Dave showed us how to get from the lake down to I30. We hopped on the access road and followed that to US80. A couple of miles before we got to Forney, the access road ran out. We could either get on the highway or turn around. Since none of us had been out that way before we decided NOT to follow the original plan. So we turned back around and then FINALLY (after 45 miles) we turned North.
We followed East Fork which turned into Bobtown Road to Rowlett Road. From there we took the usual route home through Sachse. When I pulled into the homestead I had 65.4 miles. Terry reported 67 miles.
I was really happy to get the miles in, but the wind was insane!
