Crankshaft and Locker43 are going to pick me up in Phoenix tonight and give me a ride to Mexicali. So worst case I will be there, just with the minor detail of having no bike, no riding gear, and very limited clothes

I have confidence that Racer20 will get the trailer there somehow. Let's all send out good ADV vibes in the general direction of Arkansas!

I've been in a Honda Element with Mike for three days, I don't feel like a winner. The good news is that we're still friends...... The day is young though

Why does their SPOT tracker say they're doing 98 MPH?

Looking at the spot history they have been running between 68-71 mph since getting back on the road. Either Scott was being funny, or he was looking at KPH.

Assuming they make decent time we should still be able to get back on schedule.... of course Racer20 might be pretty beat by the time they get there.

I don't even think my van will do 98mph. I think it's electronically limited to 90 or 95. =)

How do I get the spot history? I found the spotwalla page that shows several vehicles on the road. Must have your spot...

I figger they are about 20 hours out of PHX. I don't know why they would drive straight through, though.
