Well we know where we're goin'
But we don't know where we've been
And we know what we're knowin'
But we can't say what we've seen
-- The Talking Heads, 1985
So many stops, so little to say.
We left Barb, Karl, and the Hokies behind this morning -- after sampling several of Barbara's sweet rolls -- and headed to Dayton for a taste of Wright Brothers history. More road construction complicated our route to the Wright Cycle Company, we ...
We stayed one night in Amana, IA, toured and shopped in the Colonies, ate at the Ox Yoke Inn and the Ronneburg Restaurants. Drove across Iowa, Indiana and Illinois.

So far, we have not heard any trains...other than the one they use in this park to take kids on rides and take their parents ...
... to find Huffman Prairie Field, the world’s first airfield, but were put off when it appeared we needed to enter the Wright Patterson Air Force Base at a main gate to reach it. We subsequently discovered that that is probably the way in! The morning hours were spent touring the museum of the United States Air Force; a huge, four hangared, complex which houses a multitude of aircraft from the very early days of aviation ...
