Glenn,

Sounds like you have a nice tour planned for the summer. Should be a wonderful experience with some great memories. Are you camping or doing the credit card route?......Either way should be great!.......I just got back from the summer home in the mountains. The local club had their first ride of the season and I joined in. Wasn't to bad but unforeunately by the time I get back up there in mid May they will already have their climbing legs and I will be struggling to keep up. April is a great month for bike riding in Florida as all the local and state bike clubs have planned supported rides. Hope to get a few in.....Keep us posted with your progress..............Mike

Hi Mike,

Still don't know what my exact plans are for this tour. My Dad was suppose to join me but was diagnosed with an irregular heart beat. More later.

Hey Glenn,

Sorry to hear about your dad. Hopefully they can quickly resolve his medical condition without putting him through the ringer. As for your tour it will be there when the timing is right. The one problem in the southeast will be dealing with the heat if camping. The later you leave the more inviting credit card touring becomes. I just got back from 6 days of riding in North Florida with "Bike Safari". Had a great time......camping weather was great......food was terrific......and the roads were fantastic. Got about 450 miles in. Headed to my summer home in Franklin in two weeks. Be there by myself for a month before the wife comes up so hope to get in a few short tours in the mountains along with some overnight hiking. Looking forward to it. If you go back to Rome, Ga drop me a line. Possibly we could meet up somewhere in the middle. Northeast Georgia offers some nice riding with high enough elevation to camp comfortably even during the summer.
Good luck with your trip.

Mike

Combining cycle touring with history.. A great plan.. Won't most underground railroad routing put you somewhere near Cincinnati.?
