Sterling is a tiny college town, the student body is about 600. Most of them are gone but the craze over Independence Day is going strong. A nice lady came up to us and gave us the run down of the town’s events for the day, which included an ice cream social. Oh yes. She also informed us the place we got our ice cream yesterday was know by locals as Dairy Dump. I thought it was funny when I mentioned the ducks chasing each other she said, “You know what that…means…right?” Yes, I know ducks hump. Then she said, “I just don’t know how much from the city you are.” Haha.
Tina and James Bates’ Saturday 10-2pm BBQ, THE BEST pork ribs we’ve ever had and the best thing we’ve eaten on the trip. The BBQ sauce was a family secret that James only got when his father was dying. His dad even refused the royalties offered by the Hunt ketchup family.
