Long story short I quit my job, bought a cheap cruiser, and rode south. Left out Saturday Feb 22nd morning around 6am from Louisville, KY. When I left there was snow on the ground and it was about 35 degrees. I rode to about Macon, Ga on the first day and it was rather uneventful. I just wanted to get as far south as I could on the first day. I say it was uneventful because prior to leaving for this trip I had only ridden the bike about 20 miles. My first night I camped out.
