For a mid-October drive, Mark Roethemeier chose a route that would include sections of a planned 2021 Parade "Tour" along Indiana 145 from Tell City to Birdseye and on from there to Jasper for lunch at the Schnitzelbank. We have wound our way through the woods from the I-64 north to Birdseye many times and it has always been great fun. This would give us a look at the road south of I-64.
Many thanks to Mike Mammoser for taking these pictures and to the cautious driver of a small SUV that slowed people down so Mike could take pictures safely.

Trips eastward on Indiana 66 usually start from the Newburgh Lock and Dam parking lot.
This Saturday morning was cool but sunny.
Mark gave instructions and led the way. The drive to Tell City was familiar but still fun.
At one point the group found itself bunched up behind a red Rav4 whose driver appeared to have painfully modest enthusiasm for driving.
Double yellow lines warned against trying to pass on blind curves and hills.
Finally, in another stretch of road, these kind souls pulled to the side to let the string of Porsches by.
Mike was especially pleased with this shot of Criss Yelton's 993.
The drive ended at Jasper's Schnitzelbank where drivers compared notes...
... and cleaned out any accumulated leaves. Note the quantity found in the lead car's "leaf collector".
The food is good. The atmosphere is German.
That's why we come back so often.
Mike's closing comment: "Overall the drive was nice. The new stretch of road was pretty smooth and the trees were just starting to turn colors. And lunch at the Schnitz was good as always."
