Florida bound

Well we have decided to ride to Florida again this year. Was planning on riding the blue ridge parkway but the weather does not look good that way next week. On the other hand looks great for Florida .

It was beautiful today for sure. Only thing I can tell you is bring something to clean the Lovebugs off your windscreen because it is Lovebug season now.

If you have never ridden the Natchez Trace, I recommend you ride it from Nashville, TN to Natchez, MS and then follow the coast across to mobile bay and dauphin Island, take the ferry across and follow the pan handle coastline to 19 south to tampa.

If you come down I-95 you'll be within 10 minutes of my home. I-20 is only 5 minutes. Lots of bikers stop at the Marathon Station on I-20/Hwy 340 for gas, cold drink and snacks.

I live in Venice FL (south of Tampa). The love bugs are out around here but not as bad as I have seen them in the past. You need to clean them off ASAP from painted surfaces or the juice from their mashed bodies will eat your finish up. They are a true pain in the %^% for a few weeks each spring.

TwoWheelAddict nailed it on those directions! That route is the best by far.
