Excellent report! The best part was seeing what a great time you were having along the way!

Your hard work was what let me just ride and have a good time. The waypoints and reminders along the way made sure I didn't miss stuff, and the history you provided added meaning to the things I was seeing along the route. Thanks for the compliment!

Total bleh. Two 625 mile interstate days back to back in heat and humidity.

Get on the highway, set the cruise - and space out until you need gas. Repeat as neccesary.

You forkin cork teaser

You only doing half the ride is like putting half a picture of smooching lesbians! Then placing a fake loading bar. I waited 2 minutes before realizing it! It's just not cricket. Seriously though it was a great report and hope to follow your Trans Lab and see what that's all a boot.

It was very classy to aknowledge Cannonshots efforts!!

Hugerush and I will do the Trans Am next year and are planning Trans Oz in 2013 if the Myans just ran out of ink or something.

I plan on being in serious debt though on December 19 2012 either way I'll have the rest of my life to pay it off. (Money Hoes and Clothes and smokin Optimos! it's all an inmate knows!! Baby Baaaaaby !!

Thanks again ! Your report brought a ray of sunshine into my pathetic sad life.

Disclaimer: You may have noticed some anti-Canada sentiment in the preceding text. I'm sorry Canada. I'm just joking around. I met many of your residents on my trip, and they were all very nice. And I personally prefer the metric system. Please don't get revenge on me when I do the Trans-Lab someday.[/QUOTE]



If you ever get up to Canada and we let you in, we'll confuse the hell out of you with centimeters, kilograms, liters and kilometers. And if that doesn't do it besides making you listen to Celine Dion we might just use some Ann Murray as well. Somebody might even speak to you in French too.

P.S. Bees are nothing to the black flies and mosquitoes you'll find on the Trans Lab. If your genetics are up to it.
