The Conestoga is loaded, test runs to work all week to shake the load down. :choppersm

We are heading out from Tulsa the 5th or 6th to visit the daiughter and her hubby in Charlotte NC.

First stop over will be Tunica MS where Joy says "I neve leave less than $300 or $400 ahead". Okay, steak dinner every night if that happens. :hmm2:

We will probably shoot for Ashville the next day, and then a good rest. Get up and shoot into Charlotte and enjoy free symphonies in the park, and all Charlotte has to offer.
In particular the visit with the kids. :icon_peac

We will hit the mountain roads on a side track, then back to I-40 forever through Tennessee. I have to stop in Memphis, say hi to the King.

Maybe Hot Springs Saturday before home in Tulsa Sunday.

So watch for the Retro Conestoga 1800 rolling your way in 10 days.

Okay, that took me a minute...Mexico.

Should be a great trip, Our first, so we only started out with a 2k + miles trip.

After all, we didn't want to overdo it first time out together.

We will check email after we arrive, if anyone is around and we wants to go with to the symphony thing or something, sing out we can try to get together. I expect to be there Sunday through Wednesday. Hopefully that coincides with an outdoor event.
Brand new Gel Pads, hope they work!!!!
We fit!!!!!!!
We have returned. A great trip, started out rough. I clipped the gate at work leaving, bent my Kury crash bar on the right side, so they were off for the trip. I straightened it, but a weld is going to be required on the upper hole as it is cracked, if that is steel plate and not cast.
Probably a dogbone reinforcing connector from hole to hole will be required as well.

We made North Carolina w/o further incident on day 3, taking it easy. We rode the Cherahola Skyway but blew off the dragon. Lots of folks, way overloaded, and from the locals point of view pretty much a waste of time on a cruiser. More work than anything was their view.

I will try to get an album started later.
