Did you ride it all in one day? That's a pretty good trek.

Actually didn't ride at all, we went by car because of the weather forecast but except for one downpour the weather was fine, figures.

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

what a day! ( I think everyone knows, I drove the Pontiac Vibe )

started raining on me at 08:30, I left at 06:00 so I was out west a piece somewhere.
at 09:15 the clouds turned upside down and dumped buckets of water so hard all the traffic on I-80 slowed down to about 50 mph.... I just backed off and followed the "dry ruts" where the big stuff made a tunnel thru the water.
that rain just kept coming down, until 12:30 PM... wow!!!
added a lot of time to my trip.

then, Kansas decided to change up where they are doing road construction, I was detoured all over the place.

Finally got home at 6 PM.... safe and sound, but tired....
oh, the temps at the house were 96F when I pulled in the driveway!!!

Really enjoyed our rally this time. more than before, I think the rain gave us all more time to sit and talk.

Rina and Doug got home about 6 this evening (Saturday).

No travel problems other than some horrid traffic on I80 near the IL/IN state line for about 15 miles.

We certainly had a great time, Thank you Carl for being a great host.

Larry And Dee Dee checking In safe at home. Wasn't the best trip home
but we did make It. 2374.4 miles total. Left Galena about 5:45 Fri. morning and ran
Into 1 storm in central Illinois, Pulled the bike into a car wash bay and went next door
to a Subway and had lunch while we waited the storm out. Rain let up so we took off again. Made It about 75 miles further and one of the worst storms I've ever seen rolled
In. So we made It to a Stuckeys store and abandoned the bike and waited out the weather there. So the rains let up so we took off again. Made It to I-24 headed for Nashville. Was about 7miles from Paducah, Kentucky when traffic came to a dead stop.
A semi Had blown over on the Ohio river bridge going Into Paducah. So we sat on I-24 for 4.5 hours along with 100's of other travelers. Finally about 9:45 they opened the road back up so we decided to get a room In Paducah Instead of Nashville.
Today we Got up and checked the weather and It wasn't much better, Storms all around, we decided to leave anyway about 6:30 this morning. Heading toward Nashville
Lightening was bad so we pulled into a store and waited It out. Finally we made It through Nashville and the weather eased up so we started making descent time. Arrived home about 8:45 tonight. Thanks to Carl for hosting a great event. Hope to
see you all again next year.

Flylow and daughter (Ree) made it home about 7:30 on the 22 with 1640 on the clock. We had a great time thanks to all that were in attendance and a special thanks to Carl for making it happen.
