Bright and sunny morning; perfect for a day of riding. Today we’ll finally enter Florida and escape the cold Canadian winter for the first time in our lives. It’s a neat feeling being a snowbird and not hit the age of 30 yet. If only I could figure out a way to do this for the rest of our lives; dodge winter and ride all year round.
We took the back roads for the majority of the ride down to Jacksonville, Florida. When we got to the city limits we thought it might be a good idea to get off the interstate and take the local roads to EgoDriver71 & MrsEgoDriver; our hosts. Once again we found ourselves in a shady neighborhood; there wasn’t anyone on the streets that didn’t look our way. Too much attention; better get back on the interstate.
We arrived at EgoDriver71 early in the evening and got introduced to the family over some yummy burgers for dinner. Both EgoDriver71 and MrsEgoDriver ride, which is way cool and the family also owns a nice collection of vintage Indians featured in the Smithsonian.

Later on that evening we had a nice dinner at Egodriver71 & MrsEgodriver’s parents…with a nice refreshing glass of Boone’s of course!
