finally day 11

Chris arrived in Homer at 9:00 pm est. He said he hated the last 3 hours of the ride (we will get more info on why later). While on the phone, I heard somebody asking him for his receipts, his name and the mileage. One of the organizers thinks there are less than 20 guys. So hopefully, he is in the top 20. It is over! Big relief for me…Thanks to all of you for your support!!

Homer. Chris is snoozing in the tent behind the bike.

  1. Oh! My little finger has just told me that actually Chris is not yet done in this competition! He is now on his to break another record of his: sleep even MORE hours than he did last time he completed Keywest, FL to Anchorage, AK !!!!! 😆 :)) 😉

    He’ll be truly done with the challenge when he wakes up 😀

    Cheers mate!!!

  2. Tell Chris that when he comes back thru Nashville, give me a call and I will personally but him a nice big steak so that I can hear the stories from him first hand. Thanks for a great ride Chris, it has been a blast following your spot.

  11. Thanks, Admin. No matter how much he enjoy riding, the thought of having to face another 4,000 mile stint does not sound like lots of fun; especially with the bad weather predicted in the midwest. Looking forward to having him home again. Let the next adventure begin!

  12. Sounds like Chris had a great ride. Glad he is coming home safely. Can’t wait to read his story. Thanks for keeping all of us to date on his adventure admin. Keep me in mind when it is published. Thanks.

  13. Gread job, Chris. I monitored your progress everyday. It was fun watching your journey. Congratulations!

  14. Hey Chris! Not sure if you remember me, but I took the R.E. course from you back in 2004 and married Phil King (previous Service Manager at HD Atlanta). Anyway, we followed you all along the way of your journey and glad you made it safely! I am sure you are glad it is over and maybe we’ll ride up that way to see you soon! Great job!!
