That's right guys, I've made it across from Phoenix, all 1,962 miles of road and I'm still in one piece though I've got a sore back side- mine is definitely NOT an iron butt! Thanks for all your good wishes and also the helpful hints with my tent- I'll get the pictures of it in Kansas posted up, a bit of an improvement, though I'll still be looking out for REI to replace the broken pole.
It's been a good journey, not a spot of rain anywhere, although for the first time ever in America I got pulled over by the police, in fact he was a sheriff. I talked him round, and n,o I was not speeding at the time
I had to rush to get here from Arizona so I took mostly interstate roads.
I'll be at the Autobarn, Countryside, Illinois this evening from 5.00pm onwards.
I hope to meet a few of you later, I'll be talking about my travels, showing pictures and sharing stories; come and take a look at Thelma who has now clocked up over 180,000 miles, she's enjoying Walter's TLC in the workshop.
