Winger77, Ronnie, and I had a pretty good day. We started off riding the Country Music Highway for a while then took route 52 more or less and crossed the Daniel Boone national forest. That road must have started out as a deer trail. Up, Down, round and round, almost more fun than should be legal. I never saw so many squiggley signs with 15, 25 and 35 MPH advisories in my life. We did some 4 lane riding as well and it was terrible hot again. We saw tems over 100 today so even with drinking lots it still takes a toll, my hands were so hot in my leather gloves I rode without them for a while but my hands started to burn so I got a pair of thin cotton gerdening gloves at one of the fuel stops and my hands are happy now. I know, they are not much protection from anything but the sun.

Right now we are in Charleston MO at a motel and it is puring down rain and lightning and thunder like the dickens out there. The weather warnings are calling for 1 to 2 inches of rain overnight tonight so it should cool off some for tomorow. We figure we are about 5 to 6 hours from ES so we should be there early afternoon Monday.

Doug, what rout you guys taking, and were are you held up.

Im heading out in the morning, should be hitting Rt 81 around Whythville, Mile Marker 81 right between 4 and 5 am.

Maybe we'll cross paths. You flying your yellow?
We were in Ashland KY, Northeast corner. I see you hit Nashville so we were pretty far north of you. See You in ES, we will need to talk as after ES I am planning to head for the Cherohala, Dragon and ride the BRP from Cherokee all the way up. I need to find the best route from here across TN.
