My Recent 6 Day Tour

A couple of us did a 6 day tour, started in NW Arkansas, rode mostly in Missouri, but did get into Oklahoma and Kansas for awhile.
Here's a link to my online travelogue:

I enjoyed your photos of the route... it must have been a great experience. But I've got to say, eating breakfast at McDonald's when you could have had free oatmeal and bananas at the motel? Come on!

Nice report! I love touring on a bike. It makes the countryside come alive. The best part for me is the smells. Thanks for sharing.

Oatmeal? Who said anything about oatmeal. The McDonald's morning, that was when the hotel had only bananas, doughnuts, orange juice, and coffee.

Nice journal. I've learned the hard way: Never pass up a chance to take a picture, go to the bathroom, or do laundry.
