Now in my second year of retirement, splitting the year between the Lake House in Maine (summer, of course), and winters in New Mexico (a very mild winter, compared to Maine, LOL). The drive across the country has become a bit of an event of it's own, pulling an RV with the truck, and carrying a bike in the back of the truck, as well.

We left the Lake on Wed, at about 11AM, after having the house winterized against freezing, and stopped in Worcester, Ma to see Tom K, who had some parts for me (freshly rebuilt 1100F forks, a beautiful powdercoated 1100F swingarm, and a set of 1100F wheels for a future project...). After leaving Tom (Margaret says Thanks for the beer, man!), we went over to Springfield Mass, and due to a missed communication, we were not able to Camp at Westover AFB. Instead, we stayed in a Walmart parking lot, listening to adolescents revving their engines, and doing burnouts in the parking lot. Sleep came late, and didn't last long...

Thursday dawned a beautiful day, so we left the slab, and did some sightseeing in western Mass/Northern Ct, then worked our way into NJ, and spent the afternoon and evening with Margarets Family friends in Pompton Lakes NJ.

Friday started with rain, and we left NJ, drove through PA, Md, WV, and into Virginia. No campground had space for us, so we pulled in at a rest area in Fairfield Va, and listened to the trucks blast by on the interstate. MVPs of the evening were the earplugs we had.

Saturday was a beautiful day, and we found a spot at a beautiful campground in Crossville Tennessee (https://www.deerrunrvresort.com). It's a 200 acre property well away from the highway, with a lake for fishing, and full amenities for Campers.

Almost exactly halfway, planning to stop in Little Rock tomorrow, the Dallas (visiting old friends), then Amarillo (ish), then back to Rio Rancho.

Sounds like a fun journey Rick. On your way back up to Maine next time, you should make a little detour up my way and take me up on my offer from several years back. Stay Safe!

If your route takes you through Tulsa, wave hello to the three houses I lived in as a youngster. And wear your masks as I hear it's infected by something.

At what point will you offload the bike and ride the rest of the way? I'm honestly not sure how Margaret would react if you did.

Good luck, man
Pedro

Ryan, I promise we'll be there to see you someday, unless you PCS before we can get there, LOL!

Pedro, Margaret says your scenario ain't happening, since the bike is buried amongst other sundry items, it will be the last thing out of the truck, buddy! Got your PM, will reply shortly, but glad for your good news!

Made it to North Little Rock today, and headed to Dallas tomorrow to visit with an old flying buddy...

Made it safely to the Dallas area, no problem. Saw some interesting scenery, and a great visit with old friends!

I guess you must have made it home by now.
sorry I missed you. Maybe next time.

Bob, yes, we got home about 3 weeks ago, and are now in Tucson, delivering furniture to a daughter in Cali. I expect we will stop in Dallas again, next year, and I will keep you posted, my friend!
