Just in case you think it wasn’t hot yesterday…or the stats interest you…
Black pack (T-bag).
Ideal gear for record high temperatures and/or a night run, yes?
Yeah, not always the smartest guy…but what I have is what I have.
11 gas stops.
2 nighttime “Where the *hell* is the next fuel stop” map perusing stops.
2 (two!) nighttime “wipe the blood and animal parts off the Valk and check for damage” stops. (included in this was a “WTF am I doing out here” moment.
1 “My butt won’t take this anymore and my leg is cramped up” stop.
46 gallons of fuel (that Valk is a thirsty beasty)
7 liters of water (I am a thirsty beasty)
4-20 oz diet Cokes.
2-24 oz diet “green tea” with citrus
1-16 oz apple juice
1 McDonalds Mango/Pineapple smoothie
1 McDonalds cheeseburger/fries
2 Taco Bell tacos
1 Taco Bell nachos
5 refills diet Mtn Dew (at the taco Bell)
2 (two!) sets of tits flashed at me from random cars. Just in case there is any doubt out there…I generally *highly* support this practice.
98 degrees at 2:10am in Sherman, Texas.
60mph average speed, not bad considering all the stops, all the time spent drinking the fluids, and the vast amounts of time wasted hung up in the MASSIVE traffic jams on I-55 north of St. Louis (WTF people, it’s supposed to be an I-state!)
I’m thinking I need a GPS…can’t read the maps in motion anymore, particularly at night…and that “where the *hell* is the next fuel” button would come in handy.
More to tell.
And I’m ready for another ride!
