Thanks. Great area for sure.
I use a Thermarest self inflating unit. To be honest, it's the reason I can go way below the rating of the bag and stay warm. I do like to joke about what I bring, but I haven't been cold. (Yet)

Excellent advise my well-traveled friend. I've used the G-Potty many times. Like a dumbazz, I didn't stop and get one on the way.
Great hangover remedy as well. You just gotta remember, well, you know.

I pack a couple ziplock freezer bags in my tent before I go camping, gets really cold here in Iowa. Just zip it up and set it outside the tent.

Brilliant! Thanks for the tip, I would have never thought of that.

Or double bag it and use it as a sleeping bag heater.

I'm a hammock guy... UQ and a blanket and I'm snug and warm as-is.

I have to admit, when I head east, it's usually still dark in Jackson.

Open letter...

Open letter to the guy on Push Mountain Road (Ar 341) yesterday. (5/25/14)

Dear Dude on silver sport touring bike,
I'm sorry you got stuck behind my dad poking through the corners. I'm still teaching him the ropes on mountain cornering but alas, its hard for a flatlander on a big hog.
Anyway, I felt bad about us holding you up so that's why I motioned you past. However, it was only later I realized that due to poor hand signaling, I had inadvertently challenged you a drag race on the straight part.
Watching you carry that wheelie up to about 80 and then lower it to make the hard right made my day.

When my father and I got to the intersection at 14 he asked me "did you know that guy?" I smiled and proudly said "yes".

You'll probably never see this post, but I still felt compelled to write it.
Stay speedy my friend.

Glad to see you're getting some two-wheel time in...

Memorable area, for sure...

Thanks, this was memorable trip. Long story (I'll tell you over a beer someday) but My pops and I haven't really been close the last 19 years.
I cooked up a last minute trip over to Rodgers, AR to help us re-connect.

It was very strange to be mentally tethered to the type of rider/bike that is usually in my way slowing me down.
At one point I was so far ahead of him I thought maybe I was adopted.
