Hi all,
I'm planning on doing this RTE again on the FIRST Saturday in April
2014. It was a great gathering last year, and I know the food was great and the weather cooperated for a beautiful spring day, I hope for more of the same this year. Please pass the word to your riding friends.

Boyettte's Restaurant in Tiptonville, TN, 12:00pm-2:00pm Saturday
April 5, 2014.

This ride is scheduled at the same time as the Bald Eagles' baby
eaglets should be about two to three weeks old. The Ranger Station
across the highway has had camera's on their nesting sites. So, if the
Eagles cooperate and nest where the camera's are then you can see
these magnificent birds close up. Additionally, the Ranger Station has
other live examples of wildlife including two Bald Eagles that are injured
and can't hunt for themselves, so you'll see Eagles regardless.

Boyette's serves family style and is described below:
Since 1921 Boyette's has been one of west Tennessee's top
restaurants. People from all over a four state area make the drive every
week to experience the true flavor of the south. Just make sure you're
hungry, because their specialty is serving up generous portions of
Catfish, Country Ham, Fried Chicken and more. Put it together with
some homemade hushpuppies, onion rings and country vegetables and
it's not just a meal it's an experience.

Time to start advertising this GREAT ride to, and eat to! I'm not sure what's happening with the weather, but if your home is like mine, we've had ENOUGH winter and really bad icy weather. My suggestion for the winter doldrums is to put this SPRING RTE on your calendar and you'll be part of the magic of wishing for better riding conditions, promise!

Ride Safe everyone and see you in West Tennessee, Tiptonville on Saturday April, 5.

Robert
