Weekday ride. Quite unusual. Couldn’t resist riding to Chattanooga to attend a presentation by the adventurer Sam Manicom. A good ride into Chattanooga. Made it just in time for the talk after checking in at the hotel I was staying overnight in. Next morning after a leisurely breakfast and coffee – allowing time for any traffic to settle down – time to load up the panniers. A stop at a gas station to top up on fuel. Set the GPS to #NoHighways #NoTolls, and onwards South along the wonderful backroads through TN and in to GA.
