Great Alaska Adventure: On the Road Again, Tomorrow
After a pleasant and relaxing three day, family-oriented rest, we return to the road tomorrow for a short, and probably wet, trip to the Arkansas Ozarks for a little riding in the mountains there. We’re currently looking at a 50% chance of rain at 8 a.m. when we expect to go kick stands up and an 80% chance of thunderstorms when we arrive in Eureka Springs early tomorrow afternoon.
The good news is that Saturday is predicted to have good riding weather in the Ozarks and I’m looking forward to enjoying the mountain roads. Brother Jon has ridden some of them, as have I, but we will probably find some roads that are new to both of us. For those of you not familiar with our family motorcycle dynamics, Jon has my 2007 Ultra Classic. It had 99,000 miles on it when I sold it to him in 2011 and currently has about 108,000 miles on it. Seems to still be running pretty good.
Other than the rain, which we’ll try our best to avoid, it should be a good couple of days riding before the final dash from Arkansas to Florida. The Great Alaska Adventure is winding down, but I’m trying to stretch it out as long as I can. Will report on Ozark riding in the next couple of posts.
