Hint Hint.....for those of you have forgot.
I knew that...I did... I KNEW that. Maybe next week. Bill and Gloria: I can meet you somewhere during the week or on the weekend to do the brake pads deal. It would have to be during the day or at night though. Just let me know what works. I can still meet at Dan McGuinnis or somewhere else on Thursday at whatever time works for you. My wife doesn't get home until 8:00 PM so as long as I'm there about that time it's all good.

We fell for that last week. It was all good though, we gave George (the black lab) an honorary ADV membership.

I'll check with Bill, maybe we can meet up with you sometime after work this week for the pads. I'll give you a ring as soon as I know.

Sounds good. I'll do the Hickman, KY ferry ride tomorrow then. TTYL. I'm officially bowing out of Dan McGuinness!

Hey guys and gals. I just wanted to throw this out there if any of you feel like you could help out. I am being arrested on March 6th to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. One of my employees lost his sone a few years back to this disease. It is rough. If you want to help raise some "bail" money for me that would be awesome! I dont' care if it is $1 it all adds up! Here is a link to the page. Thanks y'all!

Sorry to hijack this, but y'all know I mean well!

Is it possible to pay money to have them keep you longer? An "anti-bail"?

I wish you were the first one to ask that. They would make more raising money to have me arrested than getting me out!

Thursday Lunch Ride

Well since no one planned to show up for dinner tonight I made it short day lunch ride to Hickman, KY and rode the Hickman Dorena Ferry to MO. I bought a personal pizza in Hickman at a little roadside to go place and had lunch in Missouri. $5.00 got a hand tossed deep pan supreme pizza and a soda! The ride up to Hickman through Tennessee and Kentucky was far superior to Missouri on the super slab back to Memphis. There is something about those empty county blacktops that is really appealing.

6APL13 RTE up the MRT to Boyette's

Now sure if I posted this before.

Ride To Eat (RTE) 6APL13 to Boyette’s
I would like to be contacted so I'll know how big a room to reserve?
Boyettte's Restaurant in Tiptonville, TN, 12:00pm-2:00pm Saturday April 6, 2013, please contact me (CaptRehkopf AT gmail DOT com) so I can reserve a proper size room.


This ride is scheduled at the same time as the Bald Eagles' baby eaglets should be about two to three weeks old. The Ranger Station across the highway has had cameras on their nesting sites. So, if the Eagles cooperate and nest where the cameras are then you can see these magnificent birds close up. Additionally, the Ranger Station has other live examples of wildlife including two Bald Eagles that are injured and can't hunt for themselves, so you'll see Eagles regardless. http://www.tn.gov/environment/tn_con...ive/eagles.htm

Boyette's serves family style and is described below:
Since 1921 Boyette's has been one of west Tennessee's top restaurants. People from all over a four state area make the drive every week to experience the true flavor of the south. Just make sure you're hungry, because their specialty is serving up generous portions of Catfish, Country Ham, Fried Chicken and more. Put it together with some homemade hushpuppies, onion rings and country vegetables and it's not just a meal it's an experience. http://www.reelfoot.com/boyettes/index.htm


Additionally, I will eat breakfast at Bryant's in Memphis TN (7:00am-8:00am) http://www.bryantsmemphis.com and ride the 180 mile Mississippi River Trail (MRT) to Tiptonville http://www.imtrails.com/mrtsouthern. I have gpx files of the TN MRT if you need them.


Ride Safe,
Robert

Sounds like a neat ride Max. River towns seem to be river towns regardless of what state or which side of the river. Some start hopping in the summer months due to marina traffic but then the roads can't handle the traffic. Lansing, Iowa and Prairie DuChien, WI come to mind. For me the fewer the vehicles the better, in town or out. Off season riding is the greatest from my perspective. ATGATT is way more comfortable as well.
