    Yup, Well I don't think it was an Olde English Folk song!

    This is 'cycle trip' as in actually peddalling it, right? Not being towed behind the Harley ... :D
    Seriously, best of luck - how far is Oklahoma to Illinois, for Pete's sake?

    No peddling, we're on the motorcycle, just hope my body is up for it! It is typically around 600 miles and a 10 hour drive on the interstate but we're going through Arkansas and Missouri on the back roads so hope to do 270 miles a day. That is probably 5 hours on the bike as I will have to get off and put my legs back in their porper position every so often! We think this might be the last trip like it is a very long time seeing how my Mom is getting so much worse. It will be harder and harder to get away. As it is, we are holding our breath and crossing all fingers and toes that the folks hold up and will be ok while we're gone. I can't get any of my lousy siblings to come help that week so it is scarey. If I'm needed I can jump a plane back quickly.
    Tornado travel, now that is a concept ! We call them ground scrapers here because the big ones will literally suck the grass right off of the ground. Looks like a big vaccum cleaner has gone through. Do you have them in England?

    :D Oh you know, legs outstretched and together like a proper lady, ( that's not only in American is it? :eek: HA!! ) I think horse back would be more comfortable, that is why I'm getting a sheep skin. Must have some creature comforts, literally !!
