Just got a text from Ian. He is on the Natchez Trace Parkway, near the Tennessee River.

Straight shot from there to here is about 3 hours, so I'd give about four hours if he stops a couple times.

Still looking at 6:30 or 7 (my guess). He said BBQ sounds good. Commissary is an excellent suggestion. I've been wanting to go to Leonard's, too.

Update! Ian is in Corinth, MS headed this way. I'm going to meet him in about one hour at a BP along 72 and we'll be headed to the Commissary.

Plan to be there between 6 and 6:30, but of course we'll be staying a while, too.

Will anyone else be there?

Jamie

Got lost....

I rode around for about an hour trying to find the Commissary; damn GPS. I Googled it but thinking it was on West street in the Saddlebrook SC. Put it the Garmin and it took me out towards Wolf Ridge Shopping Center. I decided that wasn't correct so I turned around and went back down Germantown, crossed the tracks and there it was, just near the hospital where a commissary should be. I saw three bikes parked up in the corner of a packed parking lot and a number of would be patrons milling about outside. Since it was already 7:15 I opted to go to Corky's in Collierville for some carry-out.

I did have a question for the Brit though: Did he bring Ewan and Charlie with him?

Why'd you go somewhere else if you saw us there?

We were there past 8pm...

Hi Jamie,

It appeared to be really crowded and thought it my have been awkward...arriving way late and all. I was determined to find the establishment though. Part of the mission accomplished!
