RedKnight has a long trek back to LA, so he headed out around 7:30AM. The rest of us got up and moving and headed to Panera Bread Company for a little breakfast...

After breakfast, Nano said he had some more miles he wanted to cover while up in this part of the state and he peaked off (though we did pass him again a while later?!?!?! )

I led Knightwork and Kingsized on my tour of the mountain...


I'm glad these two couldn't find any ammo for this thing...










I waited around a bit thinking I could get in touch with my sister who lives nearby, but could not... So the three amigos hit the super slab and headed west!

It was a great weekend, except for DQ's situation. Thanks to everyone for tagging along. (Y'all feel free to add an pics y'all took in here!)

Heal up quick, DQ. We're praying for you!!!

Nice report BW. Sorry I "crashed" the party but I'm certainly glad y'all had a good time.

How is your foot doing, that pic of it looked gnarly! Great report guys. That part of America has always intrigued me.

I have an appointment with a surgeon tomorrow. I'm living on pain meds right now.

Looks like a great place to while away a summer afternoon.

It's been awhile since I posted any new rides... Haven't had a chance to go on many rides lately, but today, everything fell into place. Weather, time, destination, etc.

DQ and I met up early this morning, and like all good rides, start with a good breakfast...


I followed DQ's routing down some nice roads and scenery (for Mississippi at least)


Spring was in the air...

Had to watch for "wildlife" on the side of the road

So the pavement turns to gravel, and the gravel soon erodes to a large waterhole... so I grab the camera for a pic..


A split second after the above pic, I see DQ take a tumble when his front tire washed out in the mucky hole... But he pics it up and rides on...

Checking everything out

It's not a MS Adventure Ride, until you've run into at least one of these:


This one didn't work out so well as we found out the sign was actually accurate and the bridge was really missing...

Soon we roll on...

We also like to take the long way to get places, like passing through Iraq or Afghanistan on the way...
