    I'm picking up a new-2-me '04 KTM 950 Adv. in Jacksonville, FL on the 27th. and rding it back to OKC on the 28th. and 29th.

    My route takes me North to Atlanta, then West through Birmingham, AL and on to Tupelo, MS / Memphis, TN -- the half-way point of my journey.

    I thought instead of staying at a Motel along the way Saturday night the 28th, I could bum a bed from a fellow ADV'er and share some brews and BS. Somewhere around Tupelo, MS or Memphis, TN would be great. Heck, I'd even go for an RV or tent in the Holly Springs NF!! :lol3

    Let me know if anyone is available...

    I'm in Memphis. Unfortunately, I rent a room in a house with four guys. Not much space. If you get in a bind, you can crash on my floor. I even have an air mattress...

    In any case, when you come through Memphis, give me a call at 901 237 1007. I can probably join you for a ride for a little while.

    Dangit guys, I'm sorry I had to change my route :cry That would have been fun I'm sure.

    But even with my route change it was quite a challenge. Rain from Pensacola through to the Mississippi border then fookin' COLD all the way to Baton Rouge. Good ride Sunday up to about the OK border, then it got really fookin' COLD when it got dark and I had to bail at Ardmore. My buddy Jason came and picked me up with his trailer and a WARM truck. I was about to go hypothermic. That part.... sucked.

    Anyhow, it was a wild ride back. I'm lovin the KTM and lookin' forward to my next Adventure! :freaky
