Pigeon Forge, TN to Muscle Shoals, AL via Red Clay State Historic Park, TN and Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, GA and Russell Cave National Monument, AL – 351 miles

When I turned on the Weather Channel this morning it said that the temp was 45F. Brrr. Felt like it too. The computer said to go directly north and get on the interstate going south. That seemed a little silly to me, so I took US 321 S directly to I-75. I’m sure the computer’s [...]

Today is the day that I head back to Durango after a great visit with my friends and family in North Carolina. My friends’ in Yadkinville both have to leave before I am ready, so I pack up and lock up their house hoping I haven’t forgotten anything. My first stop today was going to [...]

Yadkinville, NC to Yadkinville, NC via Winston-Salem, NC and W. Kerr Scott Reservoir and The Blue Ridge Parkway – 338 miles

I have two goals for today. The first is to get a new rear tire mounted on my motorcycle. I ordered it by phone with Honda of Winston-Salem last week and they said they should have it in by today. The second goal is to get a bunch of stamps for my National Parks Tour. [...]

Davis, NC to Yadkinville, NC via Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, NC – 293 miles

While I was getting ready to get on the motorcycle at 10:00 this morning I could not believe how hot and muggy it was. I was sweating profusely and had to wear my riding suit as I do not have any place to store it on the motorcycle. It only got a little better after [...]

Davis, NC to Davis, NC via Cape Lookout National Seashore – 31 miles

Today I made a quick trip from my parent’s house to get a National Parks Tour stamp from Cape Lookout National Seashore and then visit the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum and Heritage Center where my Dad is doing some volunteer work today. National Parks Tour progress so far – 21 sites, 14 states.

Frederick, MD to Davis, NC via Harpers Ferry NHP, WV and Cedar Creek Battlefield, VA and Shenandoah National Park, VA and Cedar Creek Battlefield, VA and Belle Grove Plantation House, VA and Chancellorsville Battlefield, VA and Petersburg National Battlefield, VA – 527 miles

I have a long way to go today and I want to get as many National Park Tour stamps as I can on the way, so I’m feeling a little time pressure. My first stop today is Harpers Ferry National Historic Park in West Virginia. It only about twenty minutes from Frederick, MD so I [...]

Chillicothe, OH to Frederick, MD via Fort Necessity NB and Antietam NB – 433 miles

It rained overnight in Chillicothe and of course it started to sprinkle just as I got the bike loaded and checked out of the motel. I ran through patches of fairly light rain until I got to Pennsylvania with a bit of heavier showers west of Wheeling, WV. My first stop was Fort Necessity National [...]

Elizabethtown, KY to Chillicothe, OH via Lincoln Birthplace Memorial NHP and Hopewell Culture NHP – 288 miles

Got a late start today as I changed time zones again yesterday and was pretty beat after yesterday’s ride. It had rained overnight so I turned on the weather channel and it showed a line of thunderstorms had moved through from south to north. As I was loading my bags on the motorcycle I noticed [...]

Marshall, MO to Elizabethtown, KY via Lewis and Clark State Memorial, IL, Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site and Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial – 547 miles

Wow….what a day! Found out last night that the visitor center of the park I was near does not open until 10:00AM. To wait and get the National Park Tour stamp from there would have meant missing my Indiana stamp until tomorrow, so I got up and left first thing in the morning. The first [...]

Concordia, KS to Marshall, MO via Homestead NM of America, Western Historic Trails Center and Harry S. Truman NHS – 464 miles

Woohoo! Got up early and added three National Park Tour sites in three different states today. It was about an hour and a half from Concordia, KS to my first stamp at the Homestead National Monument of America which celebrates the Homestead Act of 1862 and the men and women who homesteaded. The guide told [...]
