Last Saturday, two of us did a 212 mile/341 kilometer ride to a lunch at Westgate River Ranch on the Kissimmee River. The Kissimmee River flows out of Lake Kissimmee into Lake Okeechobee, Lake Okeechobee is the primary source of fresh water for the Everglades.

The day was bright and sunny, but a cool, 46F/7.8C. We left at 0845 and had a good ride to River Ranch. When we left for the return trip, the temp was 73F/22.8C, an ideal riding temp. The lunch was great and the camaraderie even better. KeysTiger was supposed to make this ride; but he had to work. It was a great ride and and a fine day.

River ranch sure has changed since the 70s. My favorite stand by trip is to St.Augustine , highway 19 north through the Ocala forest to Palatka then on 207 east to US1.

Great ride Carl. Looks like a good time.
Would be nice to hear from KeysTiger. Haven't seen any action from him for a long time. Hope all is well with him.

That is indeed a great ride. Yes, River Ranch has definitely changed since Westgate became involved.

Keystiger is doing fine. He is not doing much riding as life has gotten in the way, I can relate to that.
