Doug, thanks for reading my ramblings. Some of us in Tennessee are having a little fun writing up the various State Parks (we have some nice ones). You are also in a great part of the country for riding. Funny you mention the waving. Since I started riding bikes a few years ago, I've liked the way that people on motorcycles typically wave at each other. Somehow a simple thing like a motorcycle can cut through the differences people have for at least the time it takes to pass each other on a highway. Maybe the presidential debates should be held on motorcycles with the candidates required to ride in circles constantly passing each other. Who knows, maybe it would help.
