Day 5: On the Road Again




OK, it's Tuesday evening. Thanks to everyone for your support and concern. My scooter was fixed about 7:30 pm, and it seems to be running well. Thank you so much to Chad the mechanic and to the owners at Vespa Oklahoma, and to JD for putting me up! I had a nice sushi dinner with JD and his wife Erin so I'm on the road again to take advantage of the coolness of the evening. I hope to make Amarillo, Texas tonight, but I'll stop when I get tired. I'll add more later, but, honestly, it was probably a good thing that I got a partial day of rest.

[Added later: I only made it to the Oklahoma-Texas border (100 miles short of Amarillo), but that still saved me 3 hours of riding in the hot sun of the day and let me roll into Denver at a reasonable hour.]

The score:
Miles today: 147.
Miles total: 1899.

Glad to hear you're back on the road again -- everyone on Modern Vespa is rooting for you, and we were all worried when we heard you were broken down.

What was the failure? Enquiring minds want to know!

Sounds like a great trip and as I tap my dog's belly with my toe a great cause!

Hoping to take a long trip like yours myself on day....

Ride safely!
