OFR of South Mississippi has been absent due to many work schedule conflicts and other poor excuses. We finally got the old gang and several new members together for a 200 mile ride on Saturday, 28 Aug 15. After enjoying a nice breakfast and fellowship at the Diberville, MS IHOP restaurant, we all climbed on our rides and headed north into the Desoto National Forest. What a beautiful day! Weather at start was in the low 70’s and topped out to about 88 as we disbanded at lunch. 10 members and 2 ladies of the OFR Chapter of South Mississippi participated with promises of more at our next ride. We had the pleasure of hosting one active duty US Navy member and a bunch of old Chiefs and one SMSGT of USAF on our ride. The rest are either US Navy contractors or US Navy civilian employees. We make a great group that likes nothing better than talking motorcycles and riding. We look forward to being more active in the future. Hope you take a look at our photos. Ya’ll come visit our beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast when you can!
