The storms were up here in North Texas this afternoon, so he missed them completely.  It's a good thing, too, because we got hit pretty hard.  My dad is spending the evening trying to pop a few hail dents out of his mustang.

I think he said he did 250 miles round trip to pick up Godzilla, and then riding to Houston today is another 280 miles, so that's 530 solo miles for Joe.

I think he said he did 250 miles round trip to pick up Godzilla, and then riding to Houston today is another 280 miles, so that's 530 solo miles for Joe.

So that would be 125 Zilla Miles from Dennison to Dallas and 280 Zilla Miles, Dallas to Houston.  Sound right?

Anybody have a web server that can host a small HTML file?  It's easy to take the spreadsheet, convert it to HTML, but I need a site to host it.

There is an sohc4 Google apps site where you can put up the spreadsheet and share it as a web link.  I can get you an account if you are interested. You can also use the google website builder to embed the spreadsheet in a web page.

Thanks Glenn,

I tried Google Docs, but the spreadsheet conversion from Excel to Googleze was less than satisfactory.  Would what you describe be a place to hang a static HTML file?

I looked at the mileage for the AR leg of the relay and I think there is a mistake there.  Radam and I rode 341 miles from Oak Grove LA to Van Buren.  I don't think Godzilla got to Monroe.  If he did, he turned around and went back to the east cause Cody was stuck in Oak Grove on his way up to Little Rock. 

not sure where the mileage went wrong there.

If Cody doesn't send you his mileage maybe I can PM him and get him to give us an update of how far he came before his bike messed up on him.

This is godzilla mileage only right.. you don't want the miles that we rode down to get him.. just where HE has gone.  at least that is what I gave you.

If you are wanting the personal miles let me know and I can give you mine or Adams

Keep up the great work, i am enjoying following this even though my section is done..

I am thinking up a way to get my wife to let me get back in the ride as G comes back across Kansas and Missouri

Yes, I'm looking to track Zilla Miles.  Personal miles would be great to have, but it would be near impossible to get data points from all 300+ riders thus making the numbers meaningless from a statistical point of view.  I'm sure your saddle sores are FAR from meaningless to you! 

I have ESTIMATED Zilla miles in there now, the BLUE numbers, based on what Google sayz.  As actual Zilla Miles come in from the field, I color them GREEN.

Did Cody ride all the way from Barbers?  If not, then I guess the actual for Cody could be added to that of the rider(s) to started in Leeds, AL.

Godzilla left Austin to go on his first (I believe) camping trip before heading towards New Mexico.

Keep your fingers crossed for the next couple days. There is currently a 100 mile stretch between Big Spring, TX and Lubbock that we still need to deal with. Rumor has it that once again CBGhia may be assuming that responsibility. WHAT A GUY! We could get hosed on this stretch! Justin Carthel can't double back for that stretch from Lubbock to Big Spring since he has agreed to further extend his ride and meet Sean Condon 450 miles down the road in western NM. Seems that we may not now have our previous New Mexico riders (??) so he's taking that on AND Sean would be riding all the way from San Francisco?! Or is this Scottly? I'm kinda distracted with this divorce #$%*, just glad you guys can distract me from that  :) These some BADASS MOFO's  ;D

Now, I hope I have all that kinda close to what's up  ::) I know Scottly is in the mix somewhere so I could have some of this wrong, especially the NM stuff  ??? Please correct me anyone if I'm incorrect.

Go Godzilla go  ;D

OK, I stand corrected as I thought I probably shoulda been  :) I was saying that SCondon is doing more riding than HE plans and apparently that isn't the correct plan. Different Sean/Shawn. Try this and see if it makes more sense - Jerry, I believe Justin is referring to Shawn Swenson (climbingaz) in Tempe (PHX) - which would make a lot more sense. I'm trying to keep up with this whole thing but see where that gets me  ;D Just very glad you guys are on the ball  :)
