  Hello everyone this is Daniel Krehling. I've joined up with Joe for this ride. My ride begins in Harrisburg, PA. I started out on Sunday morning about 7 am on a clear and sunny day.  I started out for my girlfriend Christines brothers house in Ferndale Michigan. The trip should have taken about 8  1/2 hours. It actually took 17. How? Well accident on the PA Turnpike 3 hours. Accident on the Ohio Turnpike another 3 hours. From there on out delay after delay. Finally got to Wayne and Kristis home very late. Kristi wasn't feeling well and went to bed early. Hope you are feeling better Kristi. Wayne took me to a great restaurant/bar in downtown Ferndale. Great pizza. It reminded me of Macks Pizza on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Good stuff! Then I got a call from Joe to come up almost to the border of Canada and help him. Enter Saturday I finally arrive to help him with his cycle. I actually found the Kawasaki dealer before Joe so I added two more lock to his bike to help protect it from the crazy people in the area. Then I met Joe at the Motel from Hell, The Elmcourt Motel. You have no idea what an experience that was. There was a puddle of blood on the floor with drips into the shower and into the bedroom. There were bullet holes in the sheets and bedclothes. Yes I said bullet holes. Fun huh? The rest of the room was even worse. Holes patched with pieces of plywood. The carpet was probably 60 yeaqrs old with big chunks missing. Bugs that I don't really want to get into as it will make your skin crawl. There were three gunshots in the middle of the night. I was thinking that any minute Freddy Kruger was going to break in. I even slept with every stitch of clothes on and on top of the covers. We lived through the night and made it until morning. That was my report on my first day and night. What joy.
