Today is the start of another epic adventure. Best of luck Doug. I hope to see you in Milwaukee. Remember that even without a support chase truck and trailer, you have, by far, the biggest support crew here on ADV.

Parts of Newburgh proper are indeed super sketchy, but the area around there is really gorgeous riding, even just ten minutes outside the city. I'm right across the river, in a town that is a fraction of the size, and has more police than their entire city does... Shame, too, as there is so much beautiful riverfront, great housing stock, and a fantastic set of parks, but if you don't police a town, and have a series of corrupt mayors come and go, these things do happen. Heck, parts of the City of Newburgh look like scenes from The Wire.

My hat is way, way off to you on this trip, I don't have the mechanical skills or the patience and spirit to make it on an old bike like that, but it's really fantastic to see folks actually RIDING those pieces of history, and I'm gobsmacked that you are doing it unsupported. Hell of a bold thing. This I will follow :) Good luck.

Does anyone know how to find the actual roads they will travel on?
I live in Michigan and would like to watch Doug and the rest of the riders go through.

I cannot find this on the Cannonball website.
Thanks

If you use doug's tracker and zoom way in I bet you can figure out an intercept plan as they get close to you.

From what I can tell it looks like they will be running US-6 through most of western PA and and eastern Ohio - at least to their overnight in Sandusky. From there it's hard to say as they deliberately don't go into detail about the route on their website. I'm not even sure if the participants know the exact route ahead of time - they may get directions for each leg every morning before leaving the hotel.
