So, looks like the halfway point, I90 all the way in to WA State.  He's rolling now.

at 12:03 24 hours in....1509.6 miles done

had been in a construction zone for miles, going 60, where he had planned on going 80...but it ended while we were chatting, so his speed is back up!  Slightly windy, but not nearly as bad as last year (at this point)...so hopefully that will continue that way.

GPS says he'll arrive at 10:41 tomorrow..which only leaves him just over an 1hour for stopping...so he has to make up time in these next 2 states...which is exactly what happened last year, so lets hope that's repeated....

that's all folks.... (for now).....to be continued.....and btw, I've been reading him some of the comments so he's getting so good chuckles....keep em coming please....

Brian is my hero!!  I would love to do a ride like this but with all of life's responsibilities I would be lucky to get away for 2 hours without something urgent needing my attention.  It is great that he has you supporting him all the way as well Andrea as I'm sure that means allot.

 I am praying for God-speed and safety on his journey.

20 hours to go...............................

since Rye, NY on the road 26hr 27 min
1686 miles
avg overall speed 63.7

The wind was howling...so we cut the call short...but he said it's still not nearly as bad as what he experienced last year.....
Our friend Terry called him with weather updates for the higher passes coming up tonight...it will be cold and rainy...so he'll be sure to suit up with ALL his heated gear at one of his later fuel stops.  Thanks Terry!!!

At his next tank up, he'll grab a coffee and a bite to eat as well....otherwise, nothing eventful to report, all is well!

goodness...that kinda sounded boring didn't it.....I'll have to work on my delivery...

thanks,
Andrea

What 2 crazies in the family????   :o...no seriously I have no interest in endurance riding at all. I am willing to go somewhat long distances but no where near what Brian will do....I'll leave that riding to him!

Next time you talk to him tell him this joke.

Motorcycle rider pulls into a diner in upstate N.Y. Seats himself and asks the waitress for 2 headlites and 2 wheels. The waitress who had just worked all night wasn't in a good mood said what are you talking about? The rider already tired ,but happy to relax at the diner said" Just tell the cook he'll know what I mean but the expression 2 headlights and 2 wheels. By this time the waitress is pissed and yells back at the old cook, "I got this weird one out here who thinks you'll know what he wants if he orders 2 headlites and 2 wheels". Yeah I know what he wants, Yells the cook, He wants 2 eggs sunny side up and 2 pancakes. No problem . Well this just pisses off the waitress even more than before. SO, just be the breakfast is served to the rider, she walks up with a big plate of chili beans and slams them down on the table. "Here" she yells for all to hear, " here's you chili! But, the rider who didn't order the chili answers back What is this for? The waitress is ready for this yells back" I thought you would want to gas up before you took off"
I know that on long trips I love hearing the sound of my beautiful wife every now and again to help me forget that my butt hurts, my eyes are heavy, and that every time I get to an uphill section that I can almost count on a tractor trailer trying to pass another trucker going 50 mph uphill. 

I'm sure he will make up plenty of lost time tonight through the vastness of the west. 
Keeping the economy going, one tank of fuel and two tires at a time.
