Hosted by Bruce ‘The Bat’ Mofford
(Ready for Action!)
We gathered at the usual place and Wes took these pictures of the 31 cars and 48 people as we got ready for ‘The Freedom Run’ named by Bruce. He passed out menus and hand held flags, which was very patriotic after all he is a Veteran, so even more of a special event for him. It has been a long time since we had an MLR and everyone was excited for the ride and Italian food. Many people with masks but it looked more like a Halloween party then a Mystery Lunch Run. It was another beautiful day in paradise.
Bruce called everyone to order and explained the run, have a great time but keep up with the group. We went down 79 to the normal regrouping area then we continued to Rt 371 then to Cahuilla Casino for a bathroom break and for people to try their luck. As we left Cahuilla there were ambulances and a motorcycle accident, then we proceeded down the picturesque Rt 371 to Rt 74 where we made a left towards Idyllwild.
What a beautiful area, huge mountains, evergreens and horse paddocks, it was breathtaking. We continued at a good pace, thru the straights and turns then a right onto Rt 243, more fun turns.
We arrived at Ferro’s in Idyllwild, very nice set up, we had the whole patio area with separate tables and umbrellas, in addition, upscale outside bathrooms. A variety of Italian Food that was delicious and filling, normally we have dessert but didn’t have the room.
Everyone had a great day as we enjoyed the Freedom Run. Bruce always has fun and exciting runs, but this one may be hard to top. Nice job!
