    Almost into Alabama.

    Today has been tough due to traffic and weather.. I 10 was shut down for about 30 minutes in Louisiana and heavy traffic throughout Baton Rouge.

    Fireman 1028, did you read my post about the Breath Right strips, and the Halls Honey-Lemon cough drops.

    Seriously, within 10 seconds of you trying this, you will be amazed, and hooked on this.

    Oh......Go Fireman 1028...GO ! Only a short distance to go, so ride SMART.

    I did read it and that's a great idea. I don't have any with me and I don't have time to stop and get any, but I do have atomic fireballs and lemon drops.

    Pace is so hard to maintain with this level of fatigue...

    Practice that next fuel stop as if it's your last fuel stop.

    You may be at that point where you think a ten minute fuel stop is flying. It is, but don't linger, if at all possible.

    Still has a little over 5 hours to go before that window closes, and that is more than enough time. We should be hearing from Fireman 1028 sometime within the next hour.....saying he made it.

    Yeah !

    He is on Hwy 202, very close to the finish, as of 2:30 am EST. Still has 3.5 hours left on the available clock, yet only needs about another 15 minutes, and he will be DONE.

    Yeah !

    Congrats to Fireman 1028 for a successful 100CCC

    You did it, man...You Did It ! :clap

    Yes I did.

    Thank you to everyone who offered advice or words of encouragement along the way. I will get some rest and give myself some time to reflect and then I will do a full ride report.

    Congrats Fireman1028! You, sir, are a steely-eyed missile man! Mad props, amigo; "epic" doesn't even come close. It was an honor to virtually ride along with you.
