    head north tween the rivers where the women are scary
    you think Fulton County is backwoods then friends you should go
    down to Calhoun where the peaches are grown
    the hills are real high and the turns they are tight
    with roads so divine it may take me all night.
    but the sky was a changing as I headed up
    the rain started falling like it was poured from a cup
    falling so hard that I couldnt see
    my glasses were fogging in front of me

    lost in the bottoms of the big muddy river
    the rain was set in I was starting to shiver.
    my stuff was all wet and lost though I were
    at least I was riding not stuck in a cur
    I found the ferry in due time you see
    I was in no hurry out riding free
    cross the river to Kinders to dry
    had a cheeseburger a beer and some fries

    wrung out and ready I headed for home
    the map said two hours I would not take that long
    If I tried and was careful and watched where I went
    without much effort 5 more hours were spent
    I found some new backroads a dualsporters dream
    road along levees of Illinois streams
    got home at sunset
    with time to enjoy
    a cold one with chainwife and a book with my boy
    550 in miles riding afar
    just a a day in the sadlle of my trusty Dakar

    Chain,
    last weekend of august should work for me. Maybe we can sit around a fire with dry mike and the gang for a couple cold ones.

    MCD,
    When are you doing the roof? If its a decently open day I am always up for helping. I have been working saturdays a bit lately, though.

    Joe,

    I'm planning on Thursday 8/19 if I can schedule the dumpster and shingle deliveries for that week. I'll be taking the 19-20th off work.

    Where ya located, sounds like the only way I'll get dates and location of the secret ride on the farm is to give ya a hand.

    But send me your location, if it's close enough I'll give ya a day.

    Now thats one happy tired looking SOB. I sure appreciate all of the offers, but, I've got some labor from work lined up. I just helped a guy do his parents roof last month so he's in. First round is on me at the farm if I get to make my bike that dirty again :thumb
