RIDE TWO IN SOUTHERN INDIANA
Today was something completely unexpected. We discovered there is a beautiful Las Vegas
style casino right here in Southern Indiana. It’s located in French Lick, Indiana along with a
beautiful resort hotel. Of course a casino drew us like a magnet and the ride today would consist
of a route down to the casino, a couple hours of gambling and then lunch, followed by a different
route back to Linton and Aunt Norma’s.
We left Linton on Highway 54 and stayed with it all the way to Oolitic. ( don’t ask me how
it got its name). There we intercepted Highway 37 heading due south to Paoli. It was a nice
motorcycle road, not as spectacular as 66 but nice. At Paoli we turned west on Highway 150,
then onto Highway 56 and followed the signs to the casino.
It was a good decision. We arrived back in Linton just as the rain started to fall and our
Florida bodies could already feel the major chill in the air as we arrived. For Ride two or Day
two of Riding in Southern Indiana, it couldn’t have been much better.
