Luce Line Oct. 18-19, 2008

I just finishes stowing away my gear after an outstanding trip along the Luce Line where the trail and trees were covered in colorful fall leaves.

We left from the trail head and rode west of Watertown, had a burger on the way. Upon arriving at out camp site, we put up our tents and built a nice fire. Dinner started with a tin of smoked oysters while our collected branches burned to coals. Later we cooked beans, sausages and thick slices of bacon over the fire. Mixed with a bag of baby carrots and strawberry Newtons the meat and beans made a fine dinner. Of course we failed to bring some utensils, but made do with whittled chopsticks after presenting one sausage as a burnt offering.

The ride home was easy. Me running over a snake and getting a flat tire (not from the snake) led to our longest stops.

Such a fall trip has been, and should continue to be, an annual event.
