More on the road to Rolling Thunder

On the road to Rolling Thunder; day 2

The day started slowly due to rain in TX. I did have that second cup of coffee and after the rain stopped I left Heather's house around 9:30.

Once on the road the weather was overcast most of the way out of Texas and through Louisiana. I only made a total of 450 miles on Wednesday due to the late start.

Finally gave it up in Vicksburg, MS after staying ahead of the storm all day. Found a room at a Days Inn that promised internet, but the signal was so weak it didn't work.

Day 3; May 15

I left Vicksburg at 5:30 am only to get caught in really hard rain within 20 minutes of leaving. The rain was so bad it took me until after lunch to make a full 100 miles! I learned during the 100 miles that my rain jacket wasn't really a rain jacket and my gloves weren't waterproof. A quick stop at a WalMart solved both problems.

Shortly after that the rain slowed to a near stop and I made it all the Way to Tuscaloosa, AL with no more serious rain.

The rain stayed down most of the rest of today. I finally stopped at a Motel 6 in Anniston-Oxford, AL. About 90 miles west of Atlanta. I am now only about 400 miles from Charleston, SC and I should be able to do that tomorrow as there is less rain predicted! Thank goodness!

It has been a fun trip so far. I have made this trip several times in a car, but never on a motorcycle. Very different experience this way. I am enjoying my 2nd childhood! Have a great day!
