Her average speed as of an hour ago was 57 mph.

All that slab. What a waste, squaring off perfectly good tires.

I live in Glendive, it might have been better to just continue once she blew past the exit at Wibaux. Hopefully she isn't too tired. It will add a little different scenery to the route.

That's quite the push. I missed the little note about 3550 miles in the text of her itinerary.

Yeah, she would be the first woman to do it and only 19 men have done it....

Mystic Red, see you on the MotoBrick link. I guess that car on fire explains the smoke I saw last night to the east of Glendive. Glad she found the re-route through Baker MT, it was as good of a re-route as you could find.

Looks like she will make it to La Push tonight yet. Wahoo!

Blue Streak landed in La Push, WA at 1 AM EDT. Expressing it in EDT lets us quickly subtract and get 70 hours.

Depending on which SPOT spot is the real end point, she may have "finished" at 9:40 to 10:20 Pacific Time.

But she didn't stop; she went east a couple hours.

Yeah, she said it had just started and no one was going anywhere soon so she ran the shoulder wrong way and hammered the 7.
