Flier to Buhl - 4 July 09
Duff was up early, and restarted his bike ride from Flier to Buhl, arriving in enough time to get ready to put his bike up on the float. What a great float it was. Each year, the volunteers have made a great float, and this year was no exception. I'll get the photograph up as soon as I arrive back home. (Linda speaking). About 10:30 a.m., Max & Duff climbed up onto the float with a large group of Habitat volunteers. The whole parade lasted about 1 1/2 hours, and was very enjoyable. Thankfully, it was also in the morning, and the temperature was cool. Max behaved himself, but Duff was a bit worried, as Max kept barking at the horse that was following the Habitat float. With the completion of the parade, Duff rode 2 miles to the outskirts of Buhl, where he was met by Bill and Suzanne Root, and his bike with gear was loaded up to go with them to the Root's ranch. Duff enjoyed the conversation and the Root's generosity for such a nice place to stay the night. Max did not continue the bike ride, and went "home" with Linda. Max, for an 8 month old puppy, did put in about 350 miles! Duff's total miles today was 12.
