    Juice. What's your 20? I am in Destin heading along the coast to Corpus Christi and then on up to Austin. Heading out this morning. PM me if you want to meet up for a stretch.

    'Juice is too modest: He's a Navy veteran, and thus a very decent fellow, and ought to be welcomed into anyone's home and welcomed w/o reservation.

    Thanks for your service, mate, and thanks for catching me up on the "new" Navy.

    Thanks for the positive post.

    Thanks for the help and the great hospitality.

    I enjoyed the route this morning.

    Florida's scenic drive (98) is good to go.
    The coast temps are much colder. I only had a few drops.

    I'm in port st joe

    should have stayed in southern Florida

    Worst day for riding

    I'd take pouring down rain on I 75 throgh gator alley than over this Pensacola weather


    I'm not going to make the same mistake in south Texas. Not riding out of there for a good spell.

    It should be warmer tomorrow and less clouds

    100 miles is all I got in me

    I took it it's free. 24/7. I'm actually in Galveston now. Long cold day yesterday. Heading out this am. Going to ride the coast down to Freeport, then up 36 and across 90 to Gonzales and then up to Austin. I will be in Austin for 4 days. If you make it over there hit me up we can go ride the 3 sisters.

    I toured through new Orleans In about three hours. Unique is about right.

    I'm in Covington now. Should be warm enough to camp out before lake Charles.

    Remember to head SW at Galveston, all tha' way to the gulf, thence continue as close to the coast line as possible. Last time I was over that way the road was freshly rebuilt from a Hurricane. The thousands of structures along that route -- well, not so much.

    Damn. I wish I would've seen this thread earlier.

    I would've bought you a meal and a beer in Baton Rouge.

    I always stumble upon these threads too late.

    If you come back through my area, send me a PM.

    I'm going to check out mustang island state park and port Aransas tomorrow morning.

    Still going to be in the 30s. And foggy. But the high will be 52 and clear.
