Thank you for taking us along for the ride Jason. It has been epic. As usual you raise the bar for what a RR can be. Your narrative and ability to make the reader "feel" your journey is second to none. If we ever meet, milk is on me NB. The RR would be easier to read if you broke it up in more posts. PS. You should have left the extra set of tires at home - Tractionator GPS last forever. PPS. I'm flabbergasted that you haven't dragged the Bitch out behind the barn and taking her out of her misery long ago.
