Just like the sun sets on the ocean at Meat Cove, this Ride Report is coming to a close. We've got some housekeeping to add to the front pages (e.g. cleaned up routes, suggestions, highlights, etc), but for the most part this should be winding down.
I will say the only thing I hate more than I-95 in the Northeast, is the New Jersey Turnpike. I will remember to avoid both at all costs in the future, as they were just.pain.ful today with the labor day traffic. Nonetheless, everyone got home safe and sound. Thanks for following (especially all you lurkers--We know you are out there!)
Here are some mental stats:
5878 Miles covered
22 days duration
6 Team Turtle Recovery Units (TTRU) events occured
5 Nights camping/3 free hotel nights using points/14 paid hotel nights
4 SMIBs completed the Translab
3 Natural Disasters at home (Buffalo Stampede, Earthquake, and Hurricane Irene)
2 Riding Days in the Rain
1 year until the next epic journey begins!
