Did Indy to just past Binghamton, NY today. Should be in Madawaska, ME tomorrow afternoon to complete the 3rd checkpoint and then start the trip south.

Glad to say that I caught a second wind today and was making some good mileage.

you got a lot of coloring to do on your map when you get done.

Keep digging but keep safe.

When Mike called last night I sensed a bit of fatigue in his voice and rightly so. That mid-western leg of the trip through Iowa , Illinois (sorry Matt ! ) and Indiana can numb your brain with monotony if your just passing through.

And the heat has been pretty oppressive as well which saps the strength right out of you. Ride safe Mike..

Yep, I'm there, but it got dark just before I pulled in to town. Gonna do the paperwork in the morning and then head south. Have a stop to make in Newburgh, NY, so I'm planning that I'll most likely stay there tomorrow night before I make the run to spend one night in my own bed, do laundry, unload cold weather gear, etc.

Rest up Rapier, & then get ready for the final push. By the way what is the course for heading south?

Per our arrangement, I'll have a gallon of your favorite oil and filter waiting and ready for your pit stop.

I am impressed with the management of your time / mileage.

Your trip is good evidence that if one wants to make good time, do it solo.
Your only as fast as the slowest person in your group.

I'll be curious as to the total mileage and fuel etc involved. Quite the undertaking all said and done. I'm sure Rapier will give us the full skinny when he unwinds a bit from his journey.

It's 6:45 a.m. and somewhere just south of Poughkeepsie, NY me thinks I hear the low growl of a Wing starting up for the ride to my place for an oil change and a hardy welcome before he takes off tomorrow for Key West. Mike, if your reading this I will leave the oil, filter, drain pan, wrench and a crush washer of course in the usual place in case I get stuck somewhere and I'm later than usual.
