We will be here until the 12th Jan and then we will be heading back on the big train to Washington DC and then another train to Newport news in Virginia. Hopefully no break downs this time!

The plastic cover had a few deep grooves in it as it flew from my bike at 55mph and hit the road. I turned the GPS on and it worked!!! Thanks to Garmin and their rugged (and expensive) 'motorcycle' GPS.
