    20170515_175524.jpg 20170515_110807.jpg We are now in McMillan Tenn. Great day of riddin 340 miles, a little sight seeing, lots of curves, all 2 lane roads with a little gravel thrown in. You know how Opa is, gotta have his gravel offroad fix every day. Weather was good, got pretty warm after 2:00. Here ia a few picture from today.

    I'm in. Looks like you guys are set for a good trip. I'm envious and inspired. I'll probably be about your age when I finally hit the road so this will be fun to follow. I'm sure I'll still be camping though. Ha ha. Unless I can afford a hotel.
    You boys have fun. Ride Safe.

    Well, I really messed up. Posted all of today in someone else's thread. Got it all out of there, but it is probably dis-jointed here.
