Day 2 &3 Lumpkin,GA..Savannah, GA

So what should have taken me about 600mi..took me 700..and those extra 100 are from riding back and forth on the road that supposedly led to the state park we were camping was gps kept dropping me in the middle of the road with sign of this fuckin place..usually im a fairly patient person when im on my motorbike..but this fiasco was pushing on my very last nerve..

....but all this on my end didnt compare to kelly's journey from the other end of the country..before he could make it 3hrs fom his house in the cape..his chain broke off taking his shoe lace with and nearly his leg..while he was waiting for kevo to arrive with a master link he also noticed that his fender mounts were broke leaving a nice new tread design in his tyre..Bound and determined to meet up with me he luckily found a guy in the vicinity @ a custom bike shop to weld the fender mounts..the weld wasnt the prettiest..but it was definitely what i would call industrial strength...
oh yeah and he also realized he lost his tag..but in the end we arrived almost @ the same time both exhausted..

Florence State Park

Kelly's replacement tag..and he didnt spell florida wrong on purpose..he's just what you call special..short bus specialbefore we made it 10mi away from the campground..we stopped to check out some manmade canyons..but also realized the piston seal in his brake caliper was shot and it was leaking we bought some brake fluid and refilled when needed..leaving kelly to use downshifting as his best way to stop..scary..yes..but its a chopper..and thats how it goes
Providence Canyon State Park...Georgia's "Little Grand Canyon." the massive gullies (the deepest being 150 feet) were caused by erosion due to poor farming practices in the 1800s

Bear Sighting..or maybe a sasquatch..

we were headed to Tybee Island off the coast of GA..but it got to late to reach the campground for the night and ended up holed up in a hotel a little east of savannah..the bed did feel nice i will morning we headed into Savannah and went out to Tybee Island and on to St. Augustine,FL for the night..

Tomorrow..Cocoa Beach..hellz yeah

4200mi brewtown,WI to "the cape" coral,FL and back

I have alot to post from my roadtrip so I'm gonna just post a day @ a time and try to keep it all in order..hopefully in no time my blog will be up to date because the summer is here and shits about to get real good..dont worry i wont bore you with tons of fact when i travel alone i tend to savor the memories in my mind and end up not taking alot of photos..

So here i go..I left on Wed. April 7th @ 6am from the frigid brew city..Temp..a little above fact..i spent the night at my bro peejs 2 nights before because the abombinal snow god decided to dump a couple feet of snow on us..we were "snowed in" as we call it up here..

so never-the-less i hopped on my motorbike(cuz bunnies hop u know) and told myself that the faster i made it south the warmer i would i hauled ass to my destination of Slade,KY..about 630mi..Slade is in a dry county..but luckily for me i had camped in slade a couple years ago and knew that about 15mi down a beautifully sweeping mountain road was a church and a beer depot in the next county that happens to not be dry..jesus knows i pound beers for him..

After collecting my provisions..i rode my motorcycle up into the mountains turned down a gravel road and when i found a spot to my liking a drove into the woods and set up camp.

In this part of KY..home of the red river long as you're a couple hundred feet from the road you can go back country find a spot that suits you any where in the wooded mtns and you can set up camp..if you thought primitive camping in campgrounds was primitive..try this out for a change..i found a spot i could ride my motorcycle into the woods

It was dusk when i was looking for a place to camp so i didnt notice the scenery until the morning.
But before i could get back on the road i noticed that my already plugged tyre was leaking..i was actually hoping it was another hole and not the was the i replaced the plug but the hole was now to big for just one plug so i held on to the tail of the first one and squeezed another one next to it..i wasnt even sure it would work..and work it did..i didnt replace my tyre until i had planned to..when i got to south florida..i know some of you are just cringing @ the roll how you roll and i'll roll how i roll..on the edge bromos

So I hit the road to my next destination..Lumpkin,GA..or southwest meet up with Kelly Rogers on his freshly finished cb750 chopper..he said this was about the halfway point between us since he was coming from the cape..lets just say i was duped..i had an extra sneaky fucker you.. be continued...............
