The "It Ain't Cody!!!" Tour

My ride plans for the "It ain't Cody tour":
Thursday the 25th:
Riding to Waysider Restaurant in Tuscaloosa for breakfast. Making a couple stops along the way to the Eldorado Resort in Shreveport, La.
Friday the 26th: Dissecting Texas on the way to Las Cruces, NM. to meet my Army son.
Saturday the 27th: Ride along the Rio Grande in his attempt to complete an Iron Butt.

I stress "attempt" because he has no idea. So you "IB" Bashers, your comments aren't welcome here. His plan to do an IB is a huge reason I passed on Cody and am riding to meet him.
It will be interesting to say the least. He rides a Sport Bike with minimal wind protection and only 120 mile range. I asked what his plan for hydration in 95f plus temps were. He responded "I keep a bottle of water in my jacket".
That's where Ol' Dad comes in. I will take an extra hydration kit and cooling vest for when he cries "Uncle". I can also keep an eye on him in case we need to shut the mission down.

I WILL be posting pics along the way......

The Waysider is 168 miles from Warwgn's Garage which in turn is 4 hours from Shreveport, sounds like Lunch would be in order. I think I should just take Thursday off and fire up the oil and have some Fried catfish for lunch, feel like stopping by for a free meal and a peek at the bug?

I hate for you to take off work, but if your home I will be coming right by there.

Looks like I'll be having Catfish for lunch on Thursday. I will opt for an earlier stop and forgo the breakfast at Waysider.

Look at us having our own little meet and greet. Heck, Chopin should make an appearance.

If he wants to stop by too that is fine with me!! Just need to know who will show up by Wed so I can pick up the fish on the way home. Got a real good local guy I get the fillets from, pass by his shop everyday.

Not the full catfish bash, but just a catfish lunch, will still taste just as good though.
