0 miles done, 35,000 to go. Oh and eat your heart out Mr Da Fool . This baby is nearly 1/2 a Ton with us on it. (Hope Karen does not see this last sentence)
Forget the nav stuff, is your backup beeper working???

Even if you find the bridge, the weight limit may not let you cross.

Once DaFoole's boner is gone I think he just found his new wallpaper hero.

It's too bad because the US has great scenic secondary roads that will be too
narrow for you to ride on.

Can't wait to see your sand videos.

Of course I only tease out of pure jealousy. I wish you the best and can't
wait to see you in SLC. I've spoken to Walmart about being able to use
some of their parking lot for you. I think it will be fine.

Ride safe my friend.
