You missed a good one, Larry. The only bad part was riding Hwy 25 on the way home. I'm glad I went up Friday night.

So here's my take on the weekend...

DQ and I met at PBTP to fuel up with some good ol' REAL gas Friday night after work. We hit Hwy 25 and headed north. As we came into Starkville, I pulled over and called D#1. She and a friend met DQ and I at Grumpy's where we had supper. After that we hit 82 east and stopped at Holiday Inn Columbus for the night. About half way down 82, we passes a large catfish farm. Could not see it in the dark but did see the numerous insects that hang around it as they hit our wind screens and visors...

Got up Saturday morning, stopped by the Waffle House, and realized we had some time to kill before our appointed time. So we geared up to hunt for gas and Anti's house...


We get to Anti's, and alert him to our presence...

Finally the BMW contingent arrive. Anti and KW take turns doing the Hokey Pokey...


Finally the official time has come, no more riders materialize, so off we head!




Anti=DRZ
DQ=KTM 990
BW=Wee
KS=GSA
KW=GSA





Gettin' to the good stuff!


On these back gravel roads, the most common item, besides gravel, appears to be old churches, out in the middle of nowhere


We stopped at this one to see if KS had his ABS on or off.

And on we rode...



What happens when a rider in front of DQ is crossing water? ?


FREE BIKE WASH!!!


Some of the places out here at interesting names:






This little bridge right around a sharp bend caught a few by surprise...

I think KW took it on the outside of the runners!

We got to see this sign several times

The lid to one of Kingsized's boxes suddenly stopped fitting properly, so we stopped to check it...












He must have packed for a trip to Alaska in all that luggage... Or was it just all coffee?

Looks like a great day oof riding. Hate I couldn't make it. Looks like KS might have taken up the slack for me.

DQ had a little side trip he wanted to make...








What could possibly distract DQ from our ride?!?!?!




(He said it was smaller in person that it looked online!!)





I love old radio stations

Then back to the gravel






One of the many obstacles that can pop up on remote gravel roads

Good shade and a super breeze!


A good day.
