 Swamp ROMP
This morning I was going to ride with Terena, but she was a last minute cancel. So I became a last minute addition to the Swamp ROMP. Joe, Bob, and I met at the Cafe and Rita appeared just before we left. We set a slow pace up the trail then Kathy met us at Furman. I jumped off the lead and pulled away from the group, but I waited at various places so we regrouped several times. Once we were in Travelers Rest, we went to Upcountry Provisions for lunch. I had a Devil-Dog BLT with chips, a pickle spear, and lemonade. TR is the home to the Travelers Rest Deil-Dogs. When we left there I spotted Ramona singing and playing her guitar on the front porch at My Sisterís Store. I have seen her there the last several times that I rode. We greeted each other as our group passed by. Rita left us at that point to get on with her errands. We rode down the trail to Furman where we dropped Kathy off. Then Joe, Bob, and I rode back to the Cafe. On the way to the parking lot I passed a girl wearing a Hawkeye cap. We spoke for a few minutes and I found out that she is from the Quad cities, has been down here for 6 years, went to the Iowa/Wisconsin game, and plans to go to the Iowa/Nebraska game. At the parking lot we chatted for a few minutes and went our own ways.
