National Parks Tour – September 2010

September 4th, 2010

I’m fix’n to leave on a motorcycle trip to visit several National Parks in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

This is the start of a year long project to earn the Iron Butt Association ‘National Parks Tour – Master Traveler’ award.

Watch this space for updates during the trip.

I bagged three parks today, Big Thicket, Cane River, and Netchez Historical site. The last two are big antebellum plantations. Beautiful, but also kind of sickening when you think about the people who did all the real work.

Michelin Pilot Road tires rule, these tires are way better than the FJR stock Bridgestones.

Good night from Vicksburg, MS

The trip is going well. You can follow my progress here.

I’m home safe now after riding through Tropical Storm Hermen. Watch this space for a full trip report.
