Thank you for the congratulations everyone.

Blaster had asked about my route, so here you go:



Rally started and ended in Ely, NV, going clockwise. Some highlights:

- My first time visiting Hoover Dam
- Many remote roads where it didn't feel unreasonable to be going 100+ mph (I left the cases off the bike to increase gas mileage, but it sure does drop fast at those speeds)
- A run in and out of Gerlach (starting from I-80) in the middle of the night at a very brisk pace, luckily I had someone on a FJR to use as a rabbit.
- Two gun competition for points using a 9mm and an AR-15.
- A personal mileage record for a 32 hour rally which included over 1500 miles the first 24 hours.



Quite a few brothels were used as bonus locations, including these two. One is famous, and one has the best name of all time....





Butt Lite starts a week from Sunday. See you there Marty (we'll both probably kick off the new quarter with big numbers)

Based on feedback from Dan and Pat, I pulled that battery this morning and took it up to Napa in town for testing...it failed

Though they had the battery Dan recommended in hand, it was a special order that was placed for someone yesterday. mine will be in first thing tomorrow morning. All the connections at the battery and alternator looked good and tight. I still cleaned and reconnected all of them anyhow.

Then I got my ride on....
Made it to Sheetz just as it started to rain. Sat and enjoyed a cold beverage...when it was time to go the sun had come back out...Was hoping a fuel truck would show up so I could grab the North America Wildcard tag...no suck luck

Two questions:

Did they make you get a receipt like you had to for your PA Thruway bonus points? Can you those as your rest locations?

You apparently missed my last timed-event showing.

EOD3MC and I went to Dahlgren for a hare scramble. I actually found two different turtles that were on the riding trail. So, I gingerly stopped off the trail and moved them. I think EOD3MC nearly lapped me. He was +45 mins ahead of me. Blaster was so concerned that he kept watching to see if the Ambulance was moving

Hmmmmm....that would have dramatically increased the cost of that rally, but it sure would have been fun
