One of my favorite childhood shows was "Space Family Robinson" about a family stranded on an alien planet. Yes campy, but back in the day..... Anyway, the family robot was assigned the task of following the young Will Robinson around as Will explored the world around him. When the robot sensed dangerous situations, his arms would begin waving wildly while voicing his concern, "Danger Will Robinson, Danger Will Robinson". I inquired about the route to Circleville and Mark C gave a reference to not knowing the route exactly, didn't have a map but we would head southwest and try to pick up Peggy's Rocky Road markings from last fall to guide us to the hill on Rocky Road and around Circleville. Hearing this vague description I swear I immediately began hearing the Robinson robot, "Danger Mark Wilson". I could easily imagine the planned 100 mile loop falling out at 130. Doubt about the "plan" began to emerge.
We headed south on Amanda Northern and then headed west, dead into the wind on Ruff Road. GOOD HEAVENS!!!! I lost all desire to continue, turned around and just plain quit the ride. I'm so tired of riding in the wind. Turns out Mark and Jeff completed the route with 85 miles so I missed a good workout. I'm sure those two were gravely disappointed by having lost someone who would have taken monster pulls into the 40mph wind gusts.
