My brother will be there Friday late afternoon 5/10, heading out Wednesday for Nashville. Oh yeah, we are looking forward to our first visit. Coming from Colorado, I am looking forward to warmer albeit wetter weather!

On a related note, we saw there are floating casinos you can go out on for a few hours. Good/Bad?

I usually just go for one day to check out the vendors on the north end before heading south for refreshments.

2019 Wicked Cherry RGU. And an even bigger smile than before.

Better refreshment options on the south side? Any recommendations?

Left work around 3pm and road about 350 miles to Hays Kansas. Surprised to ride through 40-degree temps with a thick wet fog for about 100 miles. Most upset as it made my straight and balding hair frizzy while checking into my motel (just kidding!). Day-2 may be a bit dicey, but will check into weather and travel options before heading out to Branson MO tomorrow morning.

As a side note, not planning to move to Hays anytime soon. Went to three gas stations just to find premium gas. Many non-functional pumps also. It seems there are too many gas stations and motels for the area so all appear to be doing poorly.

I would ride down when I lived in NC. At that time a big place to visit was Suck, Bang, Blow... big crowd, vendors and live bands. And... gotta hit Dick's Last Resort!

Day-2. Thunderstorms last night. Woke up to 40-degree temps and raining. My shirt, vest, coat with liner and rain coat kept me all warm and cozy. I listened to that damn weather channel on the sound box. What a boring repetitive broadcast. I did learn that there is a lot of flooding in Kansas. Lots of rain, hail and some tornadoes the last few days. 80 miles out of Branson MO it was over 80, so time to shed some clothing. Lots of dead critters on the road. Also, lots of evidence of recent heavy rains.

I was going to stay in Springfield tonight but opted for Branson MO since I have heard sound bytes about the area on TV and the internet. It is a beautiful area, with lots of hills. I walked around and felt like I was in San Francisco walking up and down Lombard St repetitively. Nice place, but too much touristy for my Colorado blood. Not my "go to kinda place".

Tomorrow, Tunica Mississippi to meet up with my brother (riding up from Florida). A classic night of brotherly gambling debauchery at the Hollywood Casino.

Suck, Bang, Blow at Murrell's Inlet. If you are set on staying towards the north end - Look up "Captain Archies"
