    I remember in my late teens early 20ies getting easyrider mag's. One of the first things i'd look at, was in the middle of the mag there was a list of all the helmet laws in each state. I'd plan trips to those states. (same as today i planned, but hardy ever got to go. somethings don't change) that didn't have helmet laws.

    Now i'm cruizn tru ark in my full face wondering why so many people aren't wearing helmets. (ok some times i still do it to, but for the most part i wear mine)

    Also planned to spend some time in hot springs while i was in memphis. didn't happen. But i did cruise tru on this trip.

    thrusday woke up before daylight, thought i'll sleep alittle more & give the tent a chance to dry out. Woke up alittle later listening to the rain hit the tent

    oh well woke up again little later & packed up in the fog.

    went to the office & paid the lady, she told me rain was comng from the west. I told her i'd go met them.

    Need to ride today & make fewer stops, well this is straight across from the campground
