Okay, I've finally decided which Saddle Sore 1,000 route I'm going to take.
I thought about going south to Corpus Christi, head over to Galveston to eat a sandwich at Captain Jack's on the beach, and then head back north to home. Then I thought I'd go out toward Marfa and El Paso, ride through west Texas, spend the night, then head home the next day if my heart and butt would allow.
But, I've decided on an even more thrilling ride!
I'm going to head southeast to Shreveport, then east to Jackson, Mississippi. From there, I'm going to head north to Memphis, Tennessee, hook a left and ride to Little Rock, Arkansas, then northwest to Fort Smith. Finally, I'll cross into Oklahoma, head toward Paris, Texas via Hugo, then another 78 miles straight to the house, a hot bath and a soft bed.
Total No. of Miles: 1,057
Total No. of Gas Fillups: 11
Total States Traveled through: 6
Total Bottles of Tylenol: 1, if I'm lucky.
And that's the plan. Make sure to follow along as I make regular status updates on Twitter.
