    For tonight and a little bit tomorrow I'm in Nashville. I'm staying about three or four miles east of downtown.

    Today I participated in the Dragon Boat races downtown. I'm pretty beat, but I was hoping to meet up tonight with a local ADVrider for something to eat, and maybe a beer... or tomorrow if you want to show me around the city a bit. I've only been through Nashville a couple times.

    You can PM me, or tonight, for quicker plans, give me a call.

    I'm not looking for a date.

    I figured as long as I was in town, I'd like to get to know some of the folks I chat with here online.

    Thanks though.

    I'll be around downtown tomorrow morning and afternoon if anyone is up for a ride or lunch or whatever.

    Back in Memphis. You Nashville inmates are a tough crowd.

    Come to Memphis. I'll show you the good eats, the cool roads, and the interesting sites around the city.

    I just read this on Sun. afternoon. Give me little heads up next time and we can do it up. Yes, the Nashville crowd is a little.... tough to herd.

    Not a Nashville thing.

    Jamie is just the nicest guy in Memphis. In a sort of a wide eyed, little boy, wonderment he expects everyone else to be just as nice.

    There was a time, not long ago, where I had that child-like zest for life and enthusiasm for the fresh and spontaneous.

    The only surprises I get any more are what my son can cook up in his diaper at 4AM :rofl

    I didn't know I was going to Nashville until a bit before I started the thread. In fact, I was planning to ride to KCMO with another Memphis guy until the opportunity to paddle in the Dragon Boat races came up.

    I *did* have a fun time in Nashville. Stayed my first two nights with a couchsurfer... she wasn't around much, nor was I. And then my last night I stayed with a friend of a friend who has a bike, though we didn't ride. We did go out for beer at the Brewhouse and I had a Yazoo.

    Also stopped by Centennial Park for a couple hours and walked up and down the capitol mall.
