~254 miles in 18:26... I think. We fought the wind a bit, a few asshole drivers, etc but overall, it was a good ride. I had a shot at under 18 hrs but the guys I was with couldn't go more than 14-15 and I was good for 17-18. I decided that there was more perceived safety, at night, with others than alone.

We started at 0603 (officially, 0600) and ended at 0026. There was a group of four who finished in 15:40 - they know how to work well together, something I can't get my buddy to understand. They were the first group to finish, we were the next. There were seven still out when we wrapped up.

I had Garmin issues - my data is FUBAR'd but I haven't touched it yet. Too tired and sore but I'll look at it later.

My time was well over an hour better than last year. We saved time by not eating a good meal all day.

More to follow.
