OK, allow me to be the first to check in and report that I am back home as of 7:45 PM local time on July 10.

1200 miles of there and back! WooHoo. Total time was 27 hours start to finish!

Wouldn't have traded it for a million bucks!!!! I love it when I get the full effect of a surprise!!!

Steve, you did an amazing job from the limited vision I had due to my whopping 8 hours IN John Day, of which about 3-1/2 were sleeping.

I'm going for a Scotch and some sleep. 3-1/2 hours in 38+ hours and I am officially done!

It was GREAT to see old faces and awesome to finally meet new ones!! All were wonderful but I am going to play a small favorite and say how thrilled I was to finally meet Ron! Wish we had more time.

Tim, Craig, Bob and I have made it to Brookings, OR, after riding for 11 hours today. Good ride so far. Great seeing old friends and meeting new ones. We'll check in again on Monday when we get home.

Home at 1700 on the button. Left JD at 0645. 580 miles, with no performance awards for Joe G or myself, and the rear wheel stayed on the whole way.
Great placing the faces with the names.

I rode to Florence and south down the Oregon coast to Crescent City, CA (prox 510 mi). I started to go further but decided sleeping in the Redwoods not a wise choice. My thanks go to Bend Bill for his suggestion that I take a few minutes to view the Sahalle Falls along the Mckensie River. Fabulous!

Checking in from where I'll be staying for the next couple of days in Silverdale, WA so it'll have to count as home. The Columbia River is awesome, thanks for the tips Kitsap! Thanks everyone for another awesome Unrally. And for the people I didn't know before this Unrally it was awesome to meet and ride with you.

Heck and the Missus holed up in Redding in the heat with all the fires all around...Expect to blast out of here early AM to get back to Baja tomorrow mid day before the sweltering heat..
Thanks to Wiener Steve for a great UNrally... I can now return to my regularly scheduled work program with a clear head! Great to see old friends and meet new ones. This may need to become a habit!
We'll check in upon arrival in Baja...
