Thanks everyone especially @twowheeladdict for posting pics for everyone to see. Shark Week is always an amazing gathering and time flies for the attendees. I’m still on my way home and am nowhere near the photographer @Stray Mutt and twowheeledaddict are. I’ll post some of the pics I did manage to take as time permits. I finally caught up on some of the threads. Hopefully everyone gets home safe and we get to do this again next year.

Made it home today. 3096 miles for this trip. My longest ride since my back surgery in December 2016.
Scott led up to the town of Petersburg, Indiana so I could get a photo of a mural.

This is where we said our goodbyes and Steve took the lead to get me to Kentucky.
Steve and I had lunch at the Moonlite BBQ in Owensboro before we went our separate ways.

Glad I let the tank run down so I could gas up in Owensboro, KY.

From Owensboro, my route through Kentucky was curvy backroads where I worked on rounding off my tires while navigating around thunderstorms.
Made it to Fort Campbell, Kentucky and was ready for a room.
Holiday Inn Express has always told me to park under the front roof, and this one was no exception and even said to tuck it in where I was under roof and away from possible door dings.

A few random pictures, definitely didn't have time for many it seems. We were either on the move, sleeping, eating, drinking or taking in the sights.

Great pics and you hit the nail on the head for those that don’t know. There never seems to be enough time to do the things you want and need to do.
I did laundry for the 2nd time last night on our way home. Left the load in the washer for over an hour while eating next door with my group. Ron and Troy joined us as they where passing thru.

The way I see it, it's 14+ hours over 2 days of super-slab all the way ... (at least for those of us down this way). Add in gas stops, hydration stops, lunch ... and you have 10 hour days. Honestly, that might well be more than I can commit to physically.

Or we do it over 3 days, riding 5-6 hours a day (riding time) the first 2 days (Sat/Sun) and have a short 3 or so hour run to the destination on Monday. This way we could incorporate some known great riding roads here and there along with the Interstate. We've obviously got plenty of time to look at our options and talk it over with everyone involved.
Man, the beauty of retirement is taking your time and riding the fun roads. If I were retired, I'd have headed north instead of south and chased the cool air until fall. :)
