My first visit to Mammoth Caves was about two years ago but never on the bike with buddy's.
I finally got my buddy to go and we had less than 48 hours to do 860 miles and two cave tours.
Wigwam village. It's one of six villages made and one of two still standing. I would of loved to see this place back in it's day but that had to be a long time ago. The village needs some major updating along with advertising. Not one hint of this place as you drop down I-65 and not even signs that it's in town. I have to say it was the best I have ever slept out of my own bed.
I had the strange feeling something was looming over me watching and waiting!!!
The way home felt like two days and was going great till the last thirty miles when the weather was letting loose with massive winds and sudden down pours all at night and fifty degrees. Birrrr. Made it home and would do it all again.

The nicest part about taking the bike in the city was parking since motorcycles are free to park in the hospital garage. The three days I took the bike only one scooter and one other bike parked with me.
The one thing I noticed is people tend to get the hell out of the crosswalks when your coming at them and these are the same Chicagoans who won't even look up when a taxi is flying at them.
Two weeks away is my ride down to the Mammoth Caves and sleeping in a Wigwam and all dependent on the weather being good!!
