Big Trip - wanna join part of it?

Hey so I'm doing a 3000 mile 10 day ride starting May 9th. I figured I'd post my trip schedule and if any of you want to meet up with me for part of the ride let me know, cause that'd be Awesome! I've also posted a link to my route at this moment so you can check to see if you'll be close to where I'll be traveling, so you could meet up for a shorter part of the ride.

May 9th - Lexington, KY
May 10th & 11th - LEAF (Black Mountain, NC)
May 12th - Pelham, AL - Oak Mountain State Park
May 13th - Jackson, MS- Lefleur's Bluff State Park
May 14th & 15th - Dallas, TX
May 16th - Wynne, AR - Village Creek State Park
May 17th - Mammoth Cave, KY - Mammoth Cave National Park
May 18th -Motorcycle May-Hem Weekend Logan, OH - Hocking Hills State Park

The route

That's a pretty awesome ride. I haven't done anything close to that yet - maybe some day.

Maybe we can meet for lunch or something when you hit the Dallas area.

oh - and if possible - update everyone as to how the ride is going and how you are doing along the way.

Would have loved to meet up in DFW but I just booked a cabin in Ruidoso, NM for the Aspencash bike rally there from 5/16-5/19. Come on over, only another 10 hour ride from DFW.

May 12 - I'd love to meet you at or near Oak Mountain! I live right outside the park and we can ride around a bit and I can even ride with you out of town in the direction of MS for a while as well. Let me know..... :-)

Excellent idea! I'm registered on Bamarides so I'll go post something. I won't be able to tend to it until I get back from my trip on the 7th, but I will keep a monitor until I leave on the 2nd.
