Ok my name is John. I am new to this forum but trying to plan a ride/Camping trip. The wife and I have done smaller trips but nothing of this size but ready to give it a try. I live in east central Mississippi. We are going to ride from there to South Bend IN to go to the MXON race at Redbud. That first stretch we are just trying to get there as quick as we can. After that we will be riding around the Kentucky, Tennessee maybe North Carolina area for about a week. Going to watch the son run an Ironman triathlon im Louisville, KY and then heading back home. Basically I'm asking for advice on anything that should be seen or ridden in that area. Anything that should be packed for sure besides the normal camping stuff. Like I said we have done the one or two day trips but going for it and planning a big one. Based on the calendar looks like we have 11 or 12 days. Should be enough to see some country. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for the help.
