It was a nice day and 36 miles did not bother me so away I went , After about 30 some miles there was a county sign so I thought Things were going great and then at about 36 miles, lo and behold a town. I stopped at the first store and went back to the coolers and got a bad feeling when I only seen water and pop. I asked the clerk where I could buy a beer and she told me I was in a dry county.
So I figured I should have went east out of town instead of North so I return to Murfreesboro and then get on the highway headed east. I have now went about 72 miles. Headed east I again encounter a county sign at about 30 miles and then at about 36 miles I enter the town of Arkidelphia . This is a fairly busy town located right on Interstate 30 so I figured I was home free. I stopped at a gas station which carries everything and went back to the cooler and got a bad feeling as again I didn't see any beer. I asked the clerk where I could buy a beer and she said I had about 40 miles to go in any directon before I would find one as this is a dry county.
Now I am getting a little upset and determined to find a beer, I went out to my bike and brought my map back with me and asked the clerk if she would just point to a county where I could buy a beer. An elderly gentleman , who needed a shave and looked like he might have had a drink or two asked me if I was looking for a beer . I told him yes and he said to go north on the interstate 1 mile and turn left on hwy 7 and in 20 miles I would be at a licquor store . I like a man that knows what he is talking about and he looked like somewhat of an expert on beer. I did as he instructed and found the store. Then I had to figure how to get home.
About 180 miles later I was finally back at the motel with my cold beer, it tasted great, the whole 12 pack.

So, what brand of beer was worth almost 200 miles of riding? Was it worth it?

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.
