Really nice you take the time to see and experience the sights..

Hell , I don't even take a camera ... I think I could learn a lot from you .
You don't see all the pictures I didn't take. I blow by a lot of stuff, too.

I try to be mindful to stop for photos and I wish I were more extroverted. But in both cases, it does take a lot of effort to remind myself to talk to people or pull out my camera. ADVrider and the Tent Space had a lot to do with the folks I met along the way. Many of the people I "met" on this trip were people with whom I made contact through this site.

Thanks Donovan. Thanks to your wife, too. I'm glad I stopped to visit. (Your chapter is coming up, soon.)

You're not kidding! Loved it. When I got home, everyone told me I'd missed the hot July weather in Memphis.

I appreciate the comments. I check the thread every day to see if anyone had any questions or nice things to say.
