Bad Idea

Have you ever been on a motorcycle?  My husband loves his, so I ride his occasionally with him.  It can be a great time, and I recommend it to anyone.

Have you ever been on a motorcycle, in the pouring rain, on the highway, at night, completely lost on a country road in Ohio?  It's actually not very fun and I do not recommend it to anyone.

We headed to Ohio on Friday night because my family reunion was there on Saturday.  10 minutes into the ride I started feeling hail on my face.
It was only later that Brian pointed out to me that that wasn't hail.  It's just what rain feels like pelting your face while going 70 mph on the highway.

This picture makes motorcycling in the rain look cute and fun.
It was NOT cute, nor was it fun.
To make a long story short, our 1.5 hour drive turned into 3 hours.  I lost my navigating abilities once it started raining.  I could only duck my head down and close my eyes.   Which, needless to say, was the reason we missed our turn and drove way too far in the wrong direction.

Brian and I were both soaked, head to toe.  I wanted to break down crying, but I knew that wouldn't help me.  So I prayed.  I just prayed that we would survive and not have some terrible motorcycle crash in the rain.

We did survive, although it's honestly an experience I don't want to repeat.  Ever.

Here we are stopping at a gas station, not very eager to continue on.

A ride we'll never forget, that's for sure.
