You make it sound so romantic. Tell the poor Irish guy what it's like travelling across the Midwest!!!!! If he doesn't get scooped by a tornado, he'll die of boredom. He'll be so tired of cornfields and telephone poles he'll be seeing leprechauns.
It does have its lure if you want to be able to say "I drove Main Street America - the American Legend" But there is so much more to offer. I think John Roche would rather see stuff like Blue Ridge Parkway, Smokies, Ozarks, The Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, southern Utah in general, the Grand Staircase, beaches of the Gulf - Pensa Cola -Destine, the Oregon coast, the Cascades, the Rockies, (can you imagine his face driving through Bear Tooth Pass), the Giant Redwoods where he can drive his bike through a hole in a tree.
Sorry If I got carried away, I'm kind of passionate when it comes to touring. She's a big beautiful chunk of property John, and I'd advise to do lots of reading to figure out what you want to do and of course, time is your only enemy.
May you bea 1/2 hour in Heaven before the Devil knows you're dead
May be john could take these sites in the following day.
Happy Christmas to every one and thanks for all your help during the year:clapper:
