    Here we go. About to escape from New York. Sat Nav and intercom not working. It was not easy. It is strange how much I have come to rely on it and now I am navigating by the sun which is not so easy when looking for a bridge :rofl
    Turns out to be a duff (new) relay I fitted a couple of weeks ago.

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

    Outstanding, Ray!!! :clap

    Wow, do you guys look ready. Can't wait until you get down to Texas and I get to see that rig in person. What an amazing adventure you guys will be having... I'm envious!

    Ride safe, take care, and enjoy our wonderful country!

    2000 Km. 800Km of dirt, lots of sand.
    Sitting here with 53 Tenere tragics :)

    Would have loved to take a ride to NY and ride out with you but unfortunately I have bills to pay, stuck at work. :cry

    Bon voyage, is your route posted anywhere?

    Forget the nav stuff, is your backup beeper working???

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

    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.:D

    Can't wait to see your sand videos.:lurk

    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.:deal

    Ride safe my friend.
