Hi,

Apologies for my ignorance, but is Meridian a place? I presume it is the pic of the memorial - but the dates are not right (or is it me?).

You picked a great time for the ride!! NOT!! If it is anything there like here, you were lucky not to get stuck in a snow drift. I saw pics of a drift today which was at least 16 feet tall and it was only about 3 miles from where i was!!! Luckily i was in the heat!

Thanks for the info, i like to know about new places.

Richard
