Google Earth vs. Reality

AO: Hoppy Like

When: 06/29/2018

QIC: Whiz

PAX (): Whiz, Nacho Libre, Ha-Ha, Lumberg, Clyde, Turbine, El Matador

Temp was a bit cooler this morning after all the rain yesterday but thick fog was blanketed all over the area.  YHC has been scouting out some new routes for the group and decided to give one a try today.  According to Google Earth, this route would be at least 90% covered by sidewalks.  Of course, that was dead wrong as most of the sidewalks were torn up for road construction or just otherwise missing.  Lesson learned for the future and thankful the PAX rolled with it.

Here’s the route:

  • Head down Milton Ave toward Broadwell and take a left onto Wills
  • Right onto Rucker
  • Left onto Harris
  • Left onto Upper Hembree
  • Left onto Hwy 9
  • Right onto Devore Rd
  • Left onto Haynes Bridge
  • Left back onto Milton to the flag for a total of 5.3 mi.

Slower PAX stayed on Hwy 9 back to Old Milton for slightly less mileage.


  • Prayers for Lumberg as he’s traveling on vacation for the next 2 weeks
  • Looking for 3 more PAX to accompany Ha-Ha on his Puerto Rico 3rd F trip and he now has a $500 donation per PAX to assist with funds.  DM him if you or someone you know is interested.
