October 2013

Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves. Albert Einstein


I have been to towns that salivate when the bikers come to town. You know, the sales folk stare at your wallet instead of looking you in the eye. I never felt that way in Jefferson Texas.
Marion County Courthouse
Jefferson - County seat of Marion County

The town was named after Thomas Jefferson. Representing ... this is something the Chamber of Commerce has done well. Clean was my first impression, as I rode into the middle of this community of a little over 2,000. The streets were spotless. The sidewalks well swept.

There are no shortages of places to spend the night. With somewhere in the vicinity of 60 Bed and Breakfast establishments, you will have choices. Some of the premier examples are: Scarlett OHardy's, The Governor's House, Jefferson Hotel and Excelsior House, each with their own distinctive style

If you're in the mood for a relaxing get-away with a step-back-in-time ambiance, Jefferson tops the list. Replete with tours and shopping, your days will be full.


It is October, after all. What would be more apropos that a Boo Rally in October?

Bikers Welcome
The BOO Rally, going on since 1998; will be held October 11-13 in 2013. You'll find pre-register information online:

This is for the kids, burn victims to be more precise. Children from 4 to 17 attend Camp I'm Still Me at the Scottsville Camp and Conference Center. The camp serves the Louisiana/Texas area. The ability to keep this camp open is due to your contributions to the nonprofit Percy R. Johnson Burn Foundation. They provide modest lodging for the immediate family of the burn victims while their child is being treated.

If y'all are thinking Rally in October then I can't suggest a better place to spend your time and money. You'll have a great time and the kids will benefit.

Well Buckaroos, it is time to get started on my plans for my next adventure. At the moment I'm thinking a ride through Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri might be what the doctor ordered. Stay tuned; I'll let you know.

Don't forget; ride often, and ride hard, but mostly ...
Ride em if ya go em!
