Day 8 Thursday

Portsmouth, ME

Started out today in 32 degrees....brrrrrrr
And didn't warm up into the 40's!! until he left Portsmouth, ME for the oil change on the bike.  The service guys took him right in even though they knew nothing of his possible arrival.  He also took the opportunity to put on a new rear tire, something that would probably be needed before he got home.

Thank goodness for electric vest, arm chaps, heated grips and seat!!  Needs heated socks!  Tootsies got cold.  But he is headed west tomorrow for Lebanon KS which is still 1300 mi +.  But the weather should be getting warmer.

I think that after he hits Lebanon KS for the 2nd time he will be 1/2 way and then down hill from there.

No stats for today...when you hit resets....everything...darn, I hate it when that happens.

The only thing we have is:  Total miles for the day...650.7

Econo Lodge, commercial section = order in from Bella Pizza, Meatballs Parmigana
Then it was time for a shower and bed.....and another day in the journey.
