Well, made it to Chicago, fun little ride:
Barely missed the dead deer in the left lane that I didn't see until the last minute when the car in front of me swerved to miss it, then its blood and guts were all over the road so the car in front of me kicked it all up on my screen helmet and bike. Thanks.
But at least I got lucky and it rained for the last 120 miles of the ride so it got nice and clean. Showed up to the crating company wet and freezing my ass off. Oh well, bring it.
Tomorrow Cubbies game! Sunday a plane heading south!
If you're wondering about riding in Venezuela I'll forward you some of SS in Vzla's emails to me, he's given me a very good invaluable picture of what to expect and how to ride...
