This is another great writeup about a great ride, Cannonshot. Your experience with people lines up with what I've found, that 99% of the people you meet (outside of urban areas) are kind, patient, helpful, and so on. It's a good thing Henry was there when you got your ankle caught under the bike. I'm sure you would have gotten out but it may have been quite an ordeal. I especially appreciate the detail you put into the report. Because of that, I was able to recognize a road you were on west of Highway 23 in Arkansas, roughly southwest of the village of St. Paul. I didn't realize we were on part of the TAT there...I'll have to check my pictures of that rest stop made out of stone to verify the location. Thanks again.
