Tomorrow morning at 11:35, I will be leaving Beaumont to meet up with Ed in Orange, where we will officially begin the first leg of our ride to Tail of the Dragon. We won’t stop until we get to Clinton, Mississippi, which is right off the beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway, about 304-miles from Orange. In Clinton, we will rendezvous with Andrew, Jolenta, and Chuck of the Houston USR and look for a place to spend the night.

The weather forecast for our departure tomorrow promises to be wet; but we are fully prepared with rain gear, from head to toe. it shouldn’t be too bad once we begin heading northeast, away from all this soggy mess from the Gulf.
This afternoon, I checked and topped off all fluids for the MP3 and then gave it a wash. Afterward, I also pumped up the tires to the proper pressures. I guess, that only leaves dinner, some laundry, some packing and a good night sleep.*
