How about a really big... tire? 



  What does this have to do with Jerry?  This is where Team Ontario and Team Michigan plan to meet for their handoff!  ;D

Well done Jerry!! This baby is finally born!!
Can I have a motorcycle when I get old enough?
If you take care of it.
What do you have to do?
Lot’s of things. You’ve been watching me.
Will you show me all of them?
Sure.
Is it hard?
Not if you have the right attitudes. It’s having the right attitudes that’s hard.

Got me this idear!!! I found a deal on the net.....50 states .com where you can print a pic of each state that is blank. Just for sh!ts & giggles....I thought I would print the state,route,date,participants, etc. I started with Florida (duh!) that goes from Daytona to the Georgia state line. Was Wilbur the only one that did that stretch? If there was enough info...I could really detail this thing but I think for now.....the date,highway (or road), who rode it. So far....I could say that Wilbur took the 95 from Daytona Beach to the Florida/Georgia border on 3-12-11......He then made his way to-------- where he met up with-------- They then rode to-------- on highway------.
This could make for a good scrapbook. I map quested Daytona to Bluffton,SC......262 miles...4 hrs.11min. That + a turn around to head back home would be a good amount of riding (not really haulin' a$$ putting on serious miles but a good leisurely pace). I think somewhere between 250-350 miles per day is doable without killing yourself. As for me.....I map quested Modesto,Ca. to Farmington (to meet the Bay Area crew). Then Farmington to Fernley,Nv. (to meet Greg). This would be about 250 miles for me which I feel is totally doable. Crash in Reno or Fernley.....make the drop to Greg and then another 250 back home. I can't wait!!! This thing really has me jazzed........

Oh yeah, that will make it all worthwhile. That's what every soon-to-be-single 59 year old guy needs and I do believe I can handle it.   ;D

Might even get my Viagra stash out that I wouldn't waste with the spouse  :o Where does spousal duty leave off and quality/quantity take over?? I believe it is somewhere between 3 and 5 minutes  ;D  8)  :o
