My husband spent the better part of a week traveling to Ohio and back.  He left last Monday to give friends a ride to their home in Ohio.  The friends have health issues that prevented them from driving.  When Hubby agreed to drive them home, they offered to fly him back to Minnesota.  Hubby hates planes, but loves riding his motorcycle, so he hatched a plan to trailer his bike to Ohio and ride it back.  After doing some price comparison, he discovered that renting a trailer from U-Haul and the cost of gas to return came out to about the same amount as a plane ticket.  Our friends were game, so the plan was put into action.  Two days there, one day in Ohio, and two days back and Hubby arrived home yesterday with a sore butt and windburn.  But he got in one looooong motorcycle ride, which has been one of his goals.  He took a total of five pictures on his trip.  Here they are:

The final photo is of Hubby’s motorcycle at its birthplace, the Honda plant in Marysville, Ohio.  He only got one picture because the woman working at the guard station was a grouch.  “No, you can’t take any pictures!”  That’s no way to build brand loyalty, Honda management.  You might want to get somebody friendly in your guard station and set up a special area for those who want to visit the birthplace of their vehicles.  Could this be part of the reason your Marysville plant’s future is uncertain?
