So, while the rest of you were out riding awesome roads and exploring the countryside, I was cooking noodles in a rest area 15 miles west of Jackson, TN.
...but that's where the story gets interesting.
While I sit there slurping noodles to the roar of 18 wheel trucks, a fellow walks up to me and asks "where are you headed? " I told the truth and replied "nowhere really" just out and about. He then told me he was headed to Canada. I thought he was pulling my leg at first. Then I looked over my shoulder and spied a 80 something 'Wing with antique plates and a trailer.
Gilbert AKA "Buffalo Wing" had now piqued my interest. Long story short, he lives very near to Memphis, this was his first big trip, and that rest area was his first stop on the way to Toronto Canada. I make a guest appearance in his story Here at GoldwingFacts.com
as the first idiot he encounters on his journey to the great white north.
