In! I just recently made the trip out to the GC from St. Louis but it was closed off because of our wonderful politicians... So I'm looking forward to seeing everything that I missed!

Looks like you're having a good time down there! It's giving me the itch to get out on another long trip...

In for the rest of the trip! If you (for whatever reason) end up passing through St. Louis on your way back you've got a place to stay for the night here.

Had to catch up about 50 pages on the last thread before I was with you in real-time... Glad to only have 3 on the second go-round! Unfortunately that means my F5 key is going to get lots of work...

If you decide to go east I would try to stay to the west of St. Louis on your way back up. Be sure to hit up Highway K from Annapolis, MO to Ellington, MO as it's by far the best road I know of in...

Unfortunately the first one is 2 weeks before and the second is 2 weeks after I'm coming through... But thanks for the heads up, I would totally have stopped by if either one fell on the right days!

Added it in, thanks!

I think this is getting to the point where I'll need to start cutting parts out to add anything else too much out of the way. Not sure how correct the list of lines Google...

As the route stands, I'll be passing right by mile marker 199 so I might just have to take you up on that offer. I'll try to pick up the DeLorme mapbook for NC as well, it should fit in one of my...

Hmm I didn't even think about twisties tiring you out, haven't had enough to ride to worry about that before, but it is a good point. My tentative plan is to leave St. Louis early morning on Memorial...

Updated the map again. The part of Hwy 143 between Robbinsville and 28 shouldn't be there, but I can't figure out how to get Google to remove it from the map for some reason. I'll probably end up...
