Trey and Susan Adventures

After leaving Hutchison, KS, we decided to travel to Arkansas to see the Fall colors in the Ozarks. Because of warm Fall temperatures, the leaves pretty much went from green to brown then fell off. There were little pockets of color here and there, but nothing significant. Still, our rides through the mountains were beautiful and the warm weather made them quite pleasant.

Sightseeing on the scooter is a wonderful thing! We are able to go so many places the truck can't take us and our view is only limited by how far we can turn our heads.

Like all things in life, however, cruising on the scooter at 55 mile per hour has its drawbacks. Taking quality pictures is one of them. Oh, we take thousands of pictures, but very few of them are quality. There are just too many things that can go wrong. 

We've  been in Hutchison, KS for almost three weeks. We arrived early for the rally hoping to get some work done. We got a little work done, but many folks arrived early and we did a lot of visiting, too. 

From Washington DC, we made our way to a small town just east of Knoxville, KY. Earlier this year, Trey met a very kind man who rides and works on Piaggio MP3s. He was going to teach Trey how to do annual service and minor repairs to our scooter.

Leaving Williamsburg, our plan was to drive to the start of the Blue Ridge Parkway and drive about a hundred miles of it before going to Tennessee. Loading the scooter up on Saturday, we realized we had a gouge in our rear tire. Any riding of the scooter was out until that tire was fixed! (It just so happened that we had ordered replacement scooter tires a few days before and they would be waiting for us in Tennessee - more on that in the next post!)  

We had to leave the campground by checkout time, so we decided we'd reevaluate once we were on the road. There was really no point of returning to the parkway area if we couldn't ride it and we couldn't get the tire fixed for at least five or six more days. What should we do in the meantime?
