I began to get nervous that our pace and decision to go off route would cause me to miss the OSU game so at some point, I departed the group and a good thing too! After getting back on route and rolling into Amanda with 31 of the 32 miles that those that stayed on the original route had logged, I enjoyed a Monster while talking to Todd Mullins, Nick & Gary V and others. Meantime, Mark C had a flat, Poobah reminded Mark that he should be using Kenda tires, then soon after Poobah had a flat and Mark reminded Poobah he should be using a different brand, Jeff S had cable problems, a three legged dog chased the group, etc.... These guys finished with around 67 miles, some time prior to darkness.
From Amanda, I took generally a straight shot back to the parking lot via Hamburg and finished with 46 miles and arrived home 5 minutes prior to kick-off.
