that happens, my other plans wen't away so now I can ride. I am sure we will work something out eventually.

I figured I would go down and check out the swinging bridges as I have never seen them before. I suspect that I will pass through the Eagle Stop in Eugene (not really in. it is at 17 & 54) around 10. it all depends on how long it takes for me to get moving. I just got my first coffee so I doubt I will be there by ten. lets just say I will not leave there before 11:00am if anyone wants to join. I have a basic rout but I tend to improvise so it makes it hard to say where I will be after that.

Anyone is welcome. when I stop there I will check here on my phone. anyone replies Ill see it and I will be able to adjust.

I went to the doctor today for more xrays. Can't go back to work yet because I wouldn't be unrestricted but I am cleared to ride. Best of both worlds I guess So if a ride comes up I can participate.

These are the other stores I would visit, Boy Scout Store, Uncle Sams Outfitters, and at least, The Alpine Shop.

Alpine Shop on Lindbergh (Kirkwood Rd. North of Hwy 44, maybe 2 miles) Boy Scout Store, I go to the one in the Central West End, On West Pine, A block East of Euclid, Near Forest park (Zoo). There is another Boy Scout store on Page, west of Lindbergh towards Highway 270, never been to that one. website scoutstuff.org ? maybe this helps... And the Uncle Sams outfitters store is on the North side of highway 70, West of Cave Springs exit..... good luck

No gravel

All my riding lately have been down the road to Patriot Guard missions, far too many of them lately. I'll be glad when this weather breaks, 34 degrees is just too cold for highway riding.

I posted a ride report in the SWMO thread but since I started in Central MO I think I will post a link to it. Just a few pictures.

I will be riding from Chicago to Richland Missouri Friday the 26th if anybody is interested. I plan to take the highway to lousianna mo. Then all back roads. Just staying the night in Richland and turning back around Saturday. I am subscribed to the Chicago thread but thought I would put it out there on this thread

I have done it a few times. I actually live in kankakee which saves an hour/hour and a half. It has taken 6.5 all highway to 12 hours mostly all backroads to Rolla. This time I am going to a friends property in richland Mo. which I think is a little farther than Rolla. I hope you were asking me that question!?!

You might want to check on roads closed due to flooding.

Have fun,

Thanks I didnt think about that. I am watching the weather too so hopefully its good friday and saturday. I am going just to get out and ride so I can abort the mission if need be. I will see if I can check the status of the roads out of Louisiana (had to check the spelling twice) thanks hope I run across some bikes on the way.
