BTW, this trip had many "firsts" for me and riding through Kansas was one of those "firsts". That was one brutal stretch of interstate. We passed many billboards with religious themes, one asked "where will you be spending eternity" and it was looking like the answer was Kansas.

To get to ride with you all out west again I'd ride through Kansas in a heartbeat, it would still suck though.

I'm in the same boat as Jax, RDV, try to get time off for Laurel Fork, and there's a rumor of a campout in Hinton Memorial Day weekend.

I'm going, but I'll come down the 81 corridor (prolly 220) and then cut across I40 (whatever parallels it). Maps says 2,600 miles, figure about 4 days hard ride. 3 days if I push it.

I-40 = Arkansas. I'd take the fucking Panama Canal to avoid that state.

I don't know about that. I've made 10 trips to Raton, NM to shoot, and after one trip on I70, I 40 was by far a better trip. And while southern Arkansas leaves a lot to be desired, northern Arkansas is positively beautiful.

You're welcome guys!

The pain is down to a dull roar Jack. The nerve pain in my right leg is pretty much gone and the sciatic pain on the right is down about 80%. The left side is almost gone. The center, where all three surgeries were, is still sore and if I push too much, bend over or spend too much time sitting, it'll hurt. But considering that I'm only 21 days post op, it's a definite improvement.

Why didn't I think of that? He crossed my mind this evening and I couldn't remember him posting recently. Glad to see he's still around.

Hey SMIBs, we're trying to come up with a date for a campout next year and nothing really works until Memorial Day weekend. Just trying to get a feel from you guys that would normally make if being on a holiday weekend would be a deal breaker for ya.
