FL bound for bike week!!!
Only the Minnesota weather wasn’t so cooperative so, cough cough, we scrounged up a trailer, had some help getting it all set up parentheses thank you boys!!) and headed to Nashville where we parked it with friends and stayed a night before heading to FL on our bikes. It was the first time either of us have trailered bikes... and it was not enjoyable!
Our bikes in anticipation of Daytona!
|A little fun on a boring drive
Fast forward to the morning, we woke up early and hung out with our friends for a little while before unloading the bikes off the trailer. This in itself is an event. It was raining just a little but enough to make it super slippery and a struggle to get the bikes off. Thankfully there were two other people there that could help us otherwise I think we would’ve just rolled them over the side and hoped for the best. Unloading two rather large motorcycles from a trailer in the rain is my least favorite activity of the tripmso far. We got the bikes off and then head to load them. It was weird to have everything in the jeep, as I didn’t have the pressure to load the bike before we left. I don’t know if this is good or bad yet.
As we were unloading bikes in TN, we were playing with Owen~ the pig
Owen is adorable and I’m pretty sure he wanted to hop in the back my bike and come with us. His little tail is going back and forth so fast it was kind of a blur. And we have leftover veggies in the truck from the ride, which he especially loved. Our friends are from Minnesota and we haven’t seen them in a few years, but they have the most beautiful view ever from their home in Lebanon. They have horses, pigs, goats, donkey, a mini horse, chickens, and dogs. Such a fun mix of animals on a gorgeous property in the hills of TN.
We Said our goodbyes, and hit the road for Florida. It was “supposed to be a 10 hour ride give or take. However naturally, the weather, and the traffic, were definitely not in our side.
We were soaked to the bone for over 2 hours. Miserable....
So soaked that my gloves wrung out 4 timesand wer still the weight of abowling ball on my hands. Traffic in Chattanooga was brutal. And SLOW. Same with Atlanta.. I have yet to have anything + to sa about that city!
