Independence Day — Kick Stand Down

HOPERIDERS’ DAILY JOURNAL

Independence Day

Day: 24

From: Valdosta, GA                                                      To:  Key West, FL

Miles Travelled today: 607                                    Total Miles Travelled: 11,646

Total Gas Used Today: 12                                    Total Gas Used: 234

Weather: HOT (74-94 F)

Left Valdosta at 3:30 a.m. to beat the heat and get a good jump on the last day of this charitable adventure.  The temps were bearable due to the cloud cover and when I entered the Keys a refreshing rain cooled me.

During the ride down Jeff contacted me I told me to continue to Key West without him because he was still having severe radiator problems.  He is currently at an Air Force Base in Mississippi.  I arrived in Key West at 3:37 p.m.  I will stay in contact with Jeff until his return.

I’ve like to thank all the sponsors (listed on the webpage) and to the Miami Elks Lodge #948 who funded the majority of our fuel costs.

Thanks to all of you who have taken this virtual expedition with Jeff and me.

If you have not had a chance to donate to one or more of the charities please do so.

RIDE SAFE – RIDE STRONG
