Long day riding. Stayed off the Interstate Highway but was a great deal longer to get to my destination.
A hot day riding - no shade or cloud cover.
I was going to stop at Shreveport for a cold drink but circled the town and decided to head off to Alexandria via US 171 South (The Scenic Route - according to the HD Touring Guide).
Whilst it was probably far more scenic that the main Interstate Highway it did take me a ways South ...

Here is where I experienced my first hootin' and hollerin' from what I imagine are some upstanding young gentlemen in a very large truck.

... because someone thought 5:30 a.m. was a good time to fly out. But instead of sleeping I will lay their with my thoughts running 90 miles an hour - is everything packed, did I get everything done at work that I should have, am I crazy for going away for two whole weeks? Can only hope that by the time the plane lands in Honolulu, I will be able to relax, leave all my worries behind and enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer.
