Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and New Bern, North Carolina

Myrtle Beach, SC Kabni

Myrtle Beach, SC

I spent the last day in Savannah watching the rain.  By the time it cleared up, it was too late to do anything, so I sat on the porch of the Kabin and watched the ducks and swans before packing to leave in the morning. 

August 30, 2015, I left for Myrtle Beach, SC. The day started out decent but by the afternoon I had to put on my rain suit. Now imagine who have paid $150 for rain suit.

Key West to Savannah, GA

Getting to where you are going is half the fun of traveling.

To do the latter, I needed to obtain the paperwork from Black Hills Harley Davidson which would take 30 days. That I wasn't going to wait on. I left a Power of Attorney for my daughter to get my tags and left as soon as my bike was completed.

It wasn't my plan but Hurricane Erica was making her presence known with rain.  It slowed me down and I needed to be off the road by dark.  Rain and nighttime on a motorcycle, even a trike, isn't my idea of fun. My revised plan to was make Savannah the next day.  I took US A1A  through West Palm Beach. At that point it joins US 1. I had planned on getting back on A1A but the rain made me change my plans.  

The hotel where I stayed was one where many of the bikers who are having repairs on their bikes done stay. I went to a bar where I was told I could get good food. I had a wonderful meal and ended up spending some time with a group of bikers who were a lot of fun. I left early as I wanted to be on the road early in the morning.
