Not to worry, I have enough to bore everyone to sleep....



Did any of the GPS pictures turn out? Wanted to see if you also caught the odometer so I could count the trip in the 2006 mileage contest

Headed south out of Memphis. Cross the Mississippi line, and the sprawl begins to fade away...

Mississippi roads...


Captain's Log 20050114.60.9: Hit a high spot in Mississippi. Nice overlook. Lots of Pine trees...


I continue on south. I see a sign for Hurricane Landing on Sardis Reservoir (old CCC project for flood control). Rode on down to check it out.

Glad I didn't bring my boat Pretty substantial Winter Draw Down


Went a little further down, and found some water... Not much, but water. Guess they are right about varying water levels


Sherman did his best to behave. See... NO WAKE! Good Sherman.


After playing in the "lake," it was time for lunch. Hmmmm, road food.


From there, we head into downtown Oxford, MS. Here is a view of the square.


I went by to see my friend Billy. The gate was closed. Hey, Billy you there?


Oh, Billy? There is a basketball game in town today, maybe he is there.


Since Billy wasn't home, I decided to visit another important landmark in Oxford,
the Boyhood Home of DataDaddy (1970-1979).


My avatar was taken in the backyard of this house...

Let's head home before it gets dark...

Head South out of Oxford and start making a little eastward progress...

Still cool roads...








I see this sign as I am flying along, and turn around to go check things out...



Pretty cool old cemetery...




Stop for some gas and coffee. Hang out for 30 minutes or so to warm up and then its back on the road...


Mandatory Barn Picture(s) [Chaingolian rules ]




Montpelier, MS Post Office... silver box out front is the P.O. boxes for the town...


Phebe, MS gas station and BBQ joint...


Thought about in stopping Phebe for dinner, but I was on a mission and had another plan... I knew just the meal to celebrate Sherman's arrival in Starkville...


Double Bacon Cheeseburger


Oh, Yeah!


Big-ass burger Ask ElPelon

Home at last...

Finished off my burger and headed to the house.

Sherman is happy to be at his new home.




Got Sherman moved into the garage and settled in. He is happy in the herd, kinda like his last home...


I am happy to have Sherman home too!


Thanks to Ilmostro and Linzi for their hospitality during my two visits. Thanks for cleaning, lubing, and shining up Sherman before I picked him up. He looked great. He got into a little mess on the way home, but seemed happy about it... Boys will be boys


The End... Good Night all.


p.s. Ride report brought to you by Jack Daniel


I feel warm now...

Just back from Prudhoe Bay, IMO it was really worth the trip, AK is a beautiful place & you need lots of time to take it all in. I'm looking forward to returning & exploring some places i didn't have time to ride.RIP Ron Melton

Nice brisk ride, eh, Data?


One of these days I'm gonna convince the wife that SHE wants a bike. I need something smaller than the VStrom to ride around town.

Now, you take care of Shermy, or I'll beat the living tar out of you.
