Sounds like everyone is gearing up and underway. Safe rides for everyone.

I'm going to be even later than I thought. I have an unexpected meeting with my son's English teacher at 12:30. It will push me back another hour or so. Still should get there between 6 & 7. Save a burger and a beer for me!

Sitting waiting for new tires and state inspection to be done. First time the bike will be completely legal in a couple years.

Then the bike will officially ready. I'll be packing this evening and planning for an early morning departure. Only a couple days later then anticipated.

Well, my truck parking problem is solved. Friday night I will be parking it somewhere between Dalton, GA and Knoxville, TN.

Like I said, my plans usually change frequently and quickly. Now when I'm empty in Front Royal, VA I have to go down to Gainesville, GA and up thru Windsor instead of reloading in Harrisonburg, va and up thru Buffalo. So, no chance at all that I'm going to be in the area.

Bummer to hear Quebeker..

I guess that I'll just get some Cigarettes locally then. I was trying to find out the avg price for them, as they typically vary state to state..

Usually you can get them for $6.00 a pack. I just got a 2-Pack deal of Marlboro Menthols for $5.20 a pack.

Quebeker, You will be missed.

Bike is all packed and ready to go. I'll be leaving between 9:30 and 10:00 tomorrow. Nice slow pace up the scenic route.


See ya between 4-5.
