Biloxi, MS to Fort Walton Beach, FL via Panama City Beach, FL – 277 miles

I left Biloxi with Jimmy Buffet blaring on the CD player. “Brown Eyed Girl” came on and I felt sad that “the GF” was so far away back in Durango. I crossed the bridge to Ocean Springs, MS and then on up to I-10. I stayed on I-10 to Alabama and enjoyed the beautiful view [...]

Natchitoches, LA to Biloxi, MS – 301 miles

Today was a beautiful southern Fall day. It was a little cool when I Left Natchitoches but quickly warmed up. The drive through southern Louisiana brought up some old memories and I enjoyed listening to some Randy Newman as I crossed the Mississippi on the Huey P. Long bridge. I took I-12 around the north [...]

Amarillo, TX to Natchitoches, LA – 617 miles

Today was a waltz across Texas. I left the hotel around sunrise. After picking up some Mcbreakfast I ran into some fog about 10 miles out of town. The fog was heavy at times and lasted most of the way to Wichita Falls. It wasn’t all that unpleasant and kept the morning sun out of [...]

Durango, CO to Amarillo, TX – 492 miles

After a break of a little over a month I am back on the road. I’m leaving Durango and heading to North Carolina eventually. My dear friend Carrie has offered me one of her spare bedrooms while I try and find work. I had to make a few last minute stops on the way out [...]

Gallup, NM to Durango, CO via Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site, AZ – 278 miles

Got up early again and checked the weather. It was 42 degrees and the radar showed showers to the west heading northeast. Decided to wait until 9:00AM to leave so the temps could come up a little, but got restless and left earlier. In an effort to keep warm I wore jeans underneath my riding [...]

Elk City, OK to Gallup, NM via Washita Battleground National Historic Site, OK and Lake Meredith National Recreation Area, TX and El Malpais National Monument, NM – 662 miles

Woke up early this morning and got out the door right at 8:00AM. There is a very strong north wind to fight up to my first stop. Washita Battleground National Historic Site is at the site of an attack on the Southern Cheyenne village of Peace Chief Black Kettle. There are guided and unguided walking [...]

Hot Springs, AR to Elk City, OK via Fort Smith National Historic Site, AR – 428 miles

When I got up this morning it was very overcast, but the rain had stopped and the parking lot was dry. It was a little chilly so I “installed” my jacket liner. I say “installed” because this one is a pain in the ass to put in compared to my previous one. I actually took [...]

Hot Springs, AR – Rest Day

Woke up this morning and it was raining. After checking the weather channel and seeing that I would be riding all day in rain I decided to take a day off from riding. Scarfed up a bunch of food from the “continental breakfast” at the motel so I didn’t have to go out for lunch [...]

Clinton, MS to Hot Springs, AR via Vicksburg National Military Park, MS and Magnolia Plantation, LA – 486 miles

Stayed up too late last night and just couldn’t get rolling this morning. It’s another beautiful day for a motorcycle ride. My first stop is just a short hop down the interstate to Vicksburg National Military Park. The siege and eventual surrender of Vicksburg to the Union army gave the North control of the Mississippi [...]

Muscle Shoals, AL to Clinton, MS via the Natchez Trace Parkway and Brice’s Crossroads National Battlefield and Tupelo National Battlefield – 287 miles

The plan for today is to travel down the Natchez Trace Parkway collecting as many National Parks Tour stamps as I can. It has rained overnight as a cold front went through but it is only sprinkling lightly when I get up. The weather station shows that the skies are clearing rapidly from the west. [...]
