Jane, Jodi, Mike and I took a motorcycle trip from Iowa to Charleston, SC and then across to Birmingham, Al before returning to Iowa. It was a good trip, but weather conspired a bit against us making it a bit difficult at times. We had rain each of the first four riding days and then it got pretty hot. That said there was a tropical storm that came through Charleston the week before we arrived and a week after arrived, so even though we fought some rain we didn't get into he worst of it.
All in all almost 2600 miles for the trip with no major mishaps and we only got lost a couple of times.

Some mechanical issues and then heavy rains made us skip the Tail of the Dragon, have to hit it next time.
The hotel let us park the bikes under the canopy to keep them out of the weather.
Our house in Charleston had an alligator in the marsh right behind the house.
Toured Barber for the people in the group who hadn't been there.
