Four Roses dropped out of the trail this year but Wild Turkey just opened up their new distillery.
The Four Roses is still in the running. We got out passports stamped. We started and finished in one day. There are lots of interesting flavors of bourbon out there. It was a blast to be out on the road with another bike that could keep up the pace. The one day trip is grueling and avoid McDonald's in Springfield. Food poisoning turned out to be the main
course. The wife got sick too after we got home and all she had was sneak fries.(Stolen from tray.) Even with that bit of unpleasantness it was a good day. Mission completed, no one down, no one left behind.
Here is what I would recommend: Make it two days, and spend the night in a motel and hit it fresh the next day. Or wait till the weather cools off. The temperature exceeded 100 degrees in some areas. I'm not talking heat index either.
