Need some ADV hospitality...

I'm picking up a new-2-me '04 KTM 950 Adv. in Jacksonville, FL on the 27th. and rding it back to OKC on the 28th. and 29th.

My route takes me North to Atlanta, then West through Birmingham, AL and on to Tupelo, MS / Memphis, TN -- the half-way point of my journey.

I thought instead of staying at a Motel along the way Saturday night the 28th, I could bum a bed from a fellow ADV'er and share some brews and BS. Somewhere around Tupelo, MS or Memphis, TN would be great. Heck, I'd even go for an RV or tent in the Holly Springs NF!!

Let me know if anyone is available...

I'm in Birmingham, but that may not be far enough along for you. If I can help just let me know.By the way, I was born in Ardmore many years ago.

Come a little further south first, to the Scrub in Ocala, for the weekend. See the Sandbox for details.

I'm in Memphis. Unfortunately, I rent a room in a house with four guys. Not much space. If you get in a bind, you can crash on my floor. I even have an air mattress...

In any case, when you come through Memphis, give me a call at 901 237 1007. I can probably join you for a ride for a little while.

Sorry we missed you.
