Back Out for Another Run on Highway 555
Sunday, April 22, 2007
Couldn't resist another run on Highway 555. Take an easy day today, only rode 150 miles. It was way hot, and had to ditch the leather jacket.
First stop of today's trip is the UPS Store to ship off my old digital camera. It was not taking good pictures all the time, so I decided it was time for an upgrade. I started out heading west on Tenth Street until Shadeland Avenue, the corner the UPS Store is located. The people are always so friendly in that store.
From there, I continued west on Tenth Street, following the route that the GPS laid out for me. I was heading to Shelbi Street, a favorite place for me to eat! I came upon Sherman Avenue, and then headed south to Prospect Avenue. I could take this west to Fountain Square.
Lunch was delicious, as it always is there, if you are near the area, I highly recommend grabbing a bite to eat. I headed out of there on Virginia Avenue, which goes north and west and into downtown. After passing under the Conseco Field House Parking lot, I took Delaware north to Tenth Street. I jogged two blocks west, and then four blocks north to TV Station.

So we have been here in North Carolina for a week and half, and our stuff has been here for about a week. The garage is till pretty packed up, but that will take a cool morning to load stuff into the attic. Today, it is time to take that first ride out into Tar Heel Country.
Like a lot of rides, it started out at the gas station, we are lucky to have one right outside our new neighborhood. So the tank got filled, and Will, Kasey's son, and for all purposes, my step son, and I headed out on the North Carolina pavement.
Outside the neighborhood is bordered by Bethel Church Road, which we took east. it was only a short trip, since we turned north onto Coley Store Road. I have found a lot of interesting road names, many of them have church in the name. We made our way to Millingport Road, and then hit a bit of a detour.
We waited at the scene, especially when the helicopter flew in. We heard some people who knew some of the people involved, and said that the coup…
