Puckett Cabin

I stopped at the Puckett cabin and was taking a couple pics from the bike.
I was the only one there and the weridest thing happened...I heard a baby cry. I was going to get off the bike and investigate, but a car load of people stopped and hopped out so I just moved on. I googled it to see if the park service may have a recording set up or to see if there were any other reports, but I found nothing. Weird.

This was the end of day 2. I camped at Julian Price Memorial park. I had left the parkway around mile post 276 to look for a cyle camp I had written on my map seeking a hot shower as none of the federal campgrounds on the prky have showers. I had trouble finding the place due do the directions on their site missing a vital connecting road. After stopping a local and asking for directions I finally reached the place and saw a field filled with portable toilets. Discusted I drove on and ended up about 20 miles off the parkway to get gas then bee lined back onto the parkway to get to a camp site before dark. I didn't quite make it and set the tent up in the dark. I was so tired that I didn't even eat supper. I just put up the tent ate an apple and went to bed. I awoke around 1 am to the howling of numerous coyotes. I had never heard anything like that. Cool and unnerving all at the same time ,,lol

Next time try the 1/2 fried chicken, if they still have it on the menu!!

Thanks, next time I will try the chicken if they have it. I met another rider that was also camping. He told me the restaurants used to be run by locals, but now they are run by food service contractors.

I forgot the bad/embarrassing part of day 2. I was mounting up after taking a break at one of the over looks. I got my leg caught on my duffle bag and ended up pulling the bike over... I got out of the way but I bend the bolt on the left highway peg and scatched the side bag. The parking lot was sloped and that combined with the load=bike down..lol... Anyway I regrouped and continued south.
