    Super ride, super day, doesn’t get any better! When I made my silly comments at the 202 Tavern’s long table I was thinking of Roald Dahl’s famous quote, “A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.” I was riding the high at the time and hope everyone took it as I intended. Fact is, we had a seriously fun day. If my figures are correct, we had fourteen Miata’s and twenty-six people. If they are wrong, don’t tell me. Our ride was long and almost ran overtime. Thanks to key members who did the necessaries, including getting us back together when half the group missed Cheshire Road on the way to Rt. 42. It’s the one I referred to as the FUN road. They all were fun, some rough but most smooth and cool running. Thanks to Joe for being tail-gunner and to Marcel and others for reforming the group in time. How about those four wild turkey’s that made a sound judgement NOT to cross in front of us. Most of us didn’t see the huge hawk we disturbed from its road kill meal, but Holly and I drove pretty much under it just feet above us while it desperately tried to gain altitude. Some points about the ride: there seemed to be a more stop signs and traffic signals during the Run than when we ran it in May. What’s up with that? And the other thing, multiple regrouping, points up the beauty of avoiding wide highways and population centers, but those routes served getting to our widely separated wineries best. For next year I think we’ll go north into the Berkshires. End note: euphoria is always a nice feeling as we break for home, and it tells us it came out well. Thank you all.
