my offer still stands... i'll fly in and finish...

almost forgot, i wanna know how much weight you guys lost too....

Not a whole lot we can do about the middle age bit. I have been doing a bit of mountain biking prior to the trip. So my cardio was not total crap.

As far as what hurts, well a lot of me hurts from the tuck and roll on the asphalt but nothing too bad. The ass was sore for the first 3 days but was fine today. My fingers feel like summer sausages and my feet hurt a bit. So not too bad at 1300 miles from our drop off point in Bristol.

Someone else covered the cost of the spot and GPS. The Montana seems to be holding up well, it takes a few days of real use before you find out what settings you really like.

The Stock KTM 690 seat will break your ass so the seat was more of a necessity than bling, I did cheap out and went with a seat concepts seat and it works well enough.

It is tough getting the energy to post every night, but we are switching off days and it seems to be working. Bandwidth has been a challenge at some of the hotels which is why more video has not come out yet. We are trying to keep this as close to real time as we can as I think that works well with the audience as well as meeting up with people.

We are still trying to figure out tomorrow. We have a bit of backtracking to do so we don't miss out on any part of the (have to get back up to 123 to get back on the trail) TAT but we wanted to get somewhere to get things fixed before everything closed for the day.
