If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Then I should be just under 3K. You did have a bit more to drive than I.

And something else we didn't get pictures of.
But I bet I used less gas.

That's most likely do to the trailer to bike odometer connector you were using.

I had 3300 plus on the Dodge. Of course that Tulsa experience added some extra miles and time.

"Wayne" & Helen made it home last night. Decided not to spend a night with vicious winds and rain in Fargo. Had so much fun in Sioux Falls we spent an extra day and went to the Jazz/Blues fest.
Had pecans, maple syrup with ice cream for a night snack. Mmmmm, worth every penny. If only I could get the image of Green Dragon prancing around with my maple syrup out of my head! Flyone better watch out, I think I saw an heir apparent. 😯

Chuck, would it have been better to go thru Claremore and 88 East then to 412 instead of going down thru the Tulsa route?

Mardonna told me after we got home that things were bad in that direction.

but, you and I had not been following the news very much...

I saw they had "some storms" but without reading up on it a lot, had no idea it would impact travel thru there.

Connie and I are home with 1856 miles. We had a great time and are looking forward to seeing our new and old friends again.

The Snore's along with coffee pot and ladybug arrived in Rapid City about 1:30 Friday. We have been through Custer's State Park.....twice, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, rode through the Badlands National Park to and from Wall, SD. We've ridden so much that SD can't get the roads paved fast enough....oh it did happen....we have video. It was great seeing everyone again and meeting those whom we had not met. We plan to be here until Friday and mosey our way home via visiting with Digger and The Boss.
