Well we got of to a great start.  Weather was great and we all were on our bikes and ready to roll at 6:00 a.m.  Little trouble figuring out the communication system, but we got it working.  Our first stop was in Breezewood, Pa. for Breakfast and then it was only stopping for gas. One of our riders has a daugher that lives in Buffalo, NY so we stopped there for about an hour  and then headed to the Falls.  By this time I am "fried" we then went to a Casino on the Canada side, had dinner and then to the Base.  By now it is 10:00 at night and Vic was done as well.  We rode 414 miles that day and I was not a happy person.  So yes I did have a "melt down".  

We unloaded the bikes, and went right to the base lounge and I had a couple of beers and that made thing a little better, but not much.

So as we were riding we discovered that we had too much weight on the bike, (and that was not me) so we had to take some clothes out and ship back home, at this point I am ready to ship myself back!

We finally got to bed around midnight and we set the alarm for 6:30 to do it all over again.  I told Vic I was not going to ride that many miles in one day again.  Well that did not last, I found out I had over 400 miles to ride the next day,  Needless to say I did not have sweet dreams!

Trying to stay positive but not sure we are going all the way to Wyoming.  We will see how tomorrow goes.

Trying to keep the shinny side up!

Blog at you tomorrow!
