    I realize it might be a little while, but if you plan on overnighting around Prince George, we've got over an acre of lawn for you to camp out on. Or, if the weather sucks and you'd prefer a break from the great outdoors there's a spare room available as well.

    Drop me a pm if you're interested and I'll send you our location and contact info. Cheers!

    I have a crappy internet connection, but we are going to stay another day in Clayton, OK. The camping is pretty cheap and the Clayton Lake State Park is really pretty. We watched a snake swimming around this morning, and ate some good food at one of the local places.

    The Talimena Scenic Drive was great.

    The best BLTs ever, back in Grand Rivers, KY at a little place called Pokey's Cafe/ Bait Shop/ Golf cart rentals. I will go into this later, but Larry (the owner) was a hoot.

    He collects things that kill pests, these flowers are made of Arsenic and are supposed to kill flys.

    You know you are in a laid back place when the owner has no shoes on.

    He also had a 76 CB200 that was in nice shape.

    We met a man named Hunter right after we got into MO. Hell of a nice guy, like everyone else we have met. :deal

    Kim and I just wanted to say thanks again for everything. We enjoyed your company very much, and it was a welcome break from camping and a nice rest from the road. And Kim says she is already having withdrawals from your wonderful Java. :lol3

    She is getting obedience trained. (That means I'm doing it :lol3) I can't have a wild dog at the house. The longer we have her the less we want her to go...but I insist on blaming her for being such a good dog. It's all her fault. :rofl

    Met a man who can trace his great, great, great grandfather to his birth in 1831. Born Choctaw and family removed to Clayton, Oklahoma on The Trail Of Tears. I can't tell you how moved I am by the Choctaw Indians. Women are the builders of huts, plant the crops, make clothing, baskets, and the only tribe where women danced for all occasions. Whether it was social or for war. More later....
