Bill and Dan's Excellent Adventures



Bike Trip 2014 Day 5 Jonesville NC - Clinton NJ

Posted by Dan Arsenault on August 21, 2014 at 9:25 PM

Well today ended being a longer day than yesterday.  Over 14 hours, partly because I was hoping to get all the remaining signs for Bill today so that we could just not have to worry about getting signs the rest of the trip.

I am glad to be able to help Bill with this as we usually do lots of traveling and see some nice roads.  Sometimes it gets hectic because it's late in the day and we are looking for the elusive sign and we just can't find it at a safe spot to take the picture or we just can't find it at all.  Today was the day we searched for New Jersey sign until we ran out of daylight.  90 minutes of frustrating driving in a 5 mile radius in heavy truck traffic.

We decided to wait and catch it on the other side.  It will mean leaving NJ and coming back in to get it but hopefully it will be at a good safe spot for the picture.

We did manage to get Virginia and Delaware today.  Delaware and NJ are  2 other bonus signs that were initially not planned for the contest but because of our heavy high mileage days, we did have time to get these.  Speaking of mileage, I am very happy with the gas mileage on my 94 wing.  I'll have more details when i make my trip summary blog in the next week.

We skirted thunder storms again today and just got a few sprinkles, but no rain gear needed.

Well that's it for now.  More tomorrow.

Dan and Bill
