Robert has sent me a quick update before hitting the sack (that means going to bed …..)
He’s had a relatively quiet 750 mile ride today. The bike still runs perfect – apart from the gearbox.
He’s been through Nebraska, Iowa and Illinois. Iowa was were I lost my chain, number plate and half my chain guard back in 2011. I wonder whether he saw it …..
He’s done his “call-in” bonus today which will increase his points tally
He says he’s tired at the end of today but he is now only 540 miles away from the end of the ride.
So as Robert will be back at the chekpoint hotel by the time the next update is due, (which I assume he will write himself), this will be my last “blog” entry. I hope that you’ve all enjoyed reading my updates and not been too annoyed at some of the comments and thoughts that I’ve committed to text over the last 10 days or so.
I was really honoured to be asked by Robert to keep his blog going whilst he was riding the rally and so Robert I thank for for that priviledge, admire you for your determination to finish the rally under extreme circumstances and wish you all the best as your friend ……….
