Dates? Camping? I may be in for this depending on when.

Interested in seeing your route. Thinking of riding to my sister's in Lexington and looking for a meandering route over there aside from 60

I am in Prestonburg, Kentucky. Not the first time that I have stayed in Prestonburg. The last time Issac's Papa and I stayed here on our way to a gap rally. Did around 420 miles. There are some nice roads down here. I picked up 7 right after I crossed the border and rode it down to 460 and took that to 550. Very little traffic, even on the highways. Nice day of riding!

 Actually, I am thinking about driving truck for a couple of years, once it is to cold to ride.

It's gonna be too cold to ride for a couple years?! :eek:

 

No! I just figure that if I drive for a couple of years, I can then afford to really retire.

For my route down to Kentucky, I just set South shore, KY as my destination on my Tom Tom rider and picked no highways and a winding route. It worked out real well.

I made it home around 2:30 pm. When I got up this morning it had rained over night. Rode in the rain for about an hour and a half. I stayed pretty dry, until I got splashed by cars driving through puddles. Oh well, a day of riding in some rain is better than working!
