I met up with Cat in Columbia,IL and we took a ride down route 3. Seem's everyone was already at their weekend destination's or on the Big Road becasue we had it all to ourselve's. We rode over to Marion and Carbondale and grabbed some lunch and than over to Giant City State Park. Took a break there in the Lodge and went on over to Devil's Kitchen Lake. After that it was over to Makanda to the Hippey Place. Found a new watering hole on the way called Rum Runner's, kind of off the main road, but easy to access. From there we went to Old Shawneetown. We booked a room through HogDaddy's Bar. You can getcha a room at the Shawnee Chief or the Flop house which is a block from Hogdaddy's, the Motel is about two miles away and they did have road blocks up checking for alcohol,but you need to call ahead as the Flop House was booked for the weekend. Sunday morning we made a visit to Cat's Parents home and than found a great restaurant around Murphysboro called Tippey's. After a good home cooked dinner and some carrot cake we cut back over to the River Road and parted ways at Chester, IL (home of Popeye). The sky was getting black and we both missed the rain. Monday I took Cruella for a ride into the city of STL. I guess I ended the month with about 6000 miles between the two bikes. I'll be training hard the next couple week's as my Karate Nationals are coming up June 15-17th.
