Yesterday I stopped at the new Love’s Travel Stop in Dayton, Ohio and rode around town. Unfortunately the restaurants I wanted to check out close early on Saturday, but I did enjoy the Greater Miami River Recreation Trail, and passed by two baseball games, at Time Warner Park for the University of Dayton Flyers game, and Fifth-Third Field, home of the Minor League team Dayton Dragons. Between the baseball and the extensive bike trails, this would be a great place to stop for a 34-hour break. I only had 2 hours so I’ll have to stop back whenever I get the chance.

Wilbur: “Orville, you forgot the lunch that I packed for you!”
Orville: “That’s OK, I also invented the in-flight meal!”
