5 Corners Of Missouri

On Friday 9/29/2017, Eric and I set out on the 5 Corners of Missouri adventure. Its a trip I dreamed up after reading about other motorcycle adventures. The plan was to ride around the state of Missouri and visit the roads that were closest to the corners of the state. I came up with 5 corners because The northeast corner has a more eastern and a more northern area. If I got them both, I would have no doubt that I covered them all.  Here are a few photos of the trip and I’ll include the YouTube video once it finishes uploading.

Katy Trail Boonville, MO – 7/7/2017

I was going to KC to pick up Sonora after a week with her cousins. I got the bright idea to leave early and ride on the Katy Trail in Boonville, MO. So I jumped out of work early and packed up getting on the road quickly. I was in Boonville before I knew it and crossed north over the Missouri river to a trail head. I went east towards Rocheport, MO hoping to reach the town.

I did see some fantastic sights along the way. I turned around after the 8 mile mark and came all the way back and then some more to go over the Missouri river.

I ended up riding about 18 miles on a perfect evening. On the remaining drive to KC, I told my dad I was coming in so they would expect me. Then in the morning, I went out to the campsite and picked Sonora up. It was a very quick out and back, but worth it to spend that one on one time with Sonora in the car.

Katy Trail with Corvin – 7/6/2017

Corvin and I went out for a unicycle ride on the Katy Trail. We didn’t set any distance or time records, but we did spend time together. I like hearing Corvin talk about his life and the things that interest him. He even got up on the big unicycle for a bit. While he can do it, its still a little much for him. But at the rate he is growing and getting better, its only a matter of time.

Kansas City – 7/1/2017

We made a trip to KC to drop Sonora off for the week. She wanted to spend the Independence Day holiday with her uncle and cousins. So we went in town. While we were there Henry invited Corvin and I to the shooting range with him. Corvin had only ever shot a .22 riffle and was excited.

And a short video of Henry firing a round

After the range, we went to Hiatt’s house as it was the reason we came in town. Hiatt was being goofy and I got a shot of him!

Its no Kawasaki Ninja, but it’ll have to do for now.
