March 21, Begin From Memphis

Riders that want to run the first leg from Memphis to Forrest City, Arkansas, should meet me at Veterans Plaza in Overton Park. I will depart from there between 8:45 AM and 9:00 AM. Expected travel date is March 21st. This is a 300 mile riding day, with the last stop at DeQueen. Weather, media interviews, and chance encounters may alter the plan but, initially, I plan to pitch the ten somewhere near DeQueen. If you have room for me - send me a message.

Second Pass Through Arizona

Expected travel date is April 9th and the first leg will likely begin about 8:00 AM from Las Vegas.  The over night area will be Prescott, Arizona and the second travel date, the 10th of April, will take me to a second Arizona overnight at Clifton. 

Please send me a message if you can offer a place to pitch my tent, or have a good suggestion for an inexpensive campground.

DeQueen, AR to Frederick, OK

If yesterday went as planned, I will start from the area around DeQueen, Arkansas, and the day will end near Frederick, Oklahoma, just after the ninth stop of the day. The folks at Durant Motorsports are assisting with this segment, which is planned for a long than normal stop. Leaving DeQueen prior to 8:30 AM. Expected travel date is March 22nd.

Begin From Frederick, OK

Hopefully no weather has delayed the plan. So far the tour has run over 600 miles in two days and passed through about 20 counties. Begin this morning before 8:30 AM from the Frederick area and travel primarily along US-70 toward Muleshoe, Texas.  Travel date is expected to be March 23rd.

Old US-80

A staggering 239 mile long leg in this segment makes me think this might be what everybody is tallking about when they say it's a long way between stops. The average here is 113 miles.

Regardless of the long distances, I am looking forward to this segment. There is a lot of beautiful scenery along this route and many of the "Old West" adventures that I read as a kid had roots here, along the Butterworth Stage routes and the Dixie Overland Highway.

2017-1-04 - New Mexico

Begin From Muleshoe

It is very likely that I delayed in Muleshoe or Clovis for a day of rest, so that makes this intended date of travel March 25th. The overnight stop will likely be Alamagordo or Las Cruces. Does anyone have a good suggestion for an inexpensive campground?

First Stop Is El Centro

The travel date is likely March 28th and will start from Yuma or, maybe, at El Centro. 

Logic dictates that a desert area would not be a prime candidate for placement of a large Naval Aviation training base. In fact, there is a long history of high performance, and even the slowest, US Navy aircraft flying around here. This is the winter home of the Blue Angels. This weekend they are performing at Brunswick, Georgia.
