What a wonderful day of convoying through the Flint Hills. It looked like it was going to rain and then later the sun came out and the hills were beautiful. We arrived in Eureka around 10 AM and unloaded our vehicles. There were 6 vehicles and 11 members present. President, Dave Billings, led us in the Pledge of Allegiance of the Flag and Gary led us in prayer.
We ate lunch at Cindy’s Copper Kettle where, Cindy, came out and even washed our windows and gave us home made cookies to take with us. Then we left for the hills, through mud, rocks and even cows and wild horses. We stopped at an old school house that the district uses as a fire station, an old Norwegian church and also a stop at Preston Evenson’s farm for a potty break. Then on to Teterville, an old oil town and the highest point of interest, a tall rock overlooking the whole county. What beauty! On the
way back around the Eureka Lake with a stop at the maintenance shop to visit with Willie and Rita Day. Rita went with us on the convoy and Willie helped David with the trail plans.
We arrived back at around 5 p.m. and loaded our vehicles for home where we will power wash our vehicles. Thanks to our son, David, and his friends for such a lovely day.
