2008 Western Adventure

 

Day 3 - June 22, 2008

Another late start again this morning, but I did have a good nights sleep.  Again, I had some minor problems setting the route that I wanted to take, but after a couple of random detours I got back on track. The country side was beautiful in Northern Alabama, Mississippi, and into Tennessee. I especially enjoyed going through Tuskegee, AL with its deep history.  The Tuskegee University and the renowned Tuskegee Airmen. 

My route took me through some of Alabama's beautiful mountains, and near several big lakes.  Watching the boaters having fun on the lakes made me wish that I was on a jet ski and not a motorcycle.  Did I mention that it was very hot.  The thermometer on my bike was registering around a hundred most of the day, but the thermometer is mounted on a black panel, which does attract heat. 

I had lost all sense of time and before I knew it the sun was starting to go down.  I decided that I needed to eat and then start looking for a place to stay.  I queried my GPS and found there were several hotels in nearby Jackson, TN.  I also checked for camping facilities, but it was getting late by the time I finished my gourmet meal at Taco Bell, and made a few phone calls to family, and felt it would be too late to set up my tent.  I found a cheap Motel 6 with WiFi that looked mighty inviting, so that's where I stayed.
