    Laid out the second day today. North on BRP. As I rode it today, I encountered the first time that one of their many "Loose gravel" signs was true. It was 10 miles of mess between Rte 56 (M.P. 30) and U.S. 60 (M.P. 46). When I got to the end of it I stopped and talked to what appeared to be a foreman, who assured me it gets swept clean each evening and they are not working that area on Saturday. Other areas with warning signs seem to support his claim.
    But just in case, we'll take a detour down U.S. 60. and some back roads to 56 and back to the BRP. It'll add about 20 miles, but the roads are just as nice; just looking up at the scenery instead of down at it!
    We'll return a slightly different route, so as not to break the Ride Captain's Cardinal Rule.
    Total ride about 200 miles.
    Here I was... above the clouds.
