Day 1 - June 2, 2012
Skinquarter, VA to Clarksville, TN
643.6 miles

The weather was cool this morning at 0600 when I was ready to pull out. By the time I had gone 50 miles, it was downright cold. I pulled over and put on a sweat shirt and chaps. Much better! There are not many pictures today because it was mainly interstate riding trying to get to Clarksville, TN to see an old riding buddy, ďRetired JakeĒ.

After 12.5 hours and 643.6 miles I made it. I got a motel room and we went for some chow and golden throat dust remover. Riding that far on the first day wasnít too smart, but Iím 20% across the country.

Tomorrow the plan is to get up when I feel like it and make westward tracks off the interstates. No telling which way I will go, so Iíll just keep the sun to my back for a couple of hours. I appreciate all the responses from everyone thus far. Iíll post some good pictures when I get to the scenery.
