      That is freaking fantastic! Any gas mileage stats or other info you could share with us on how to make a successful 4k mile run as you did? Invaluable items, etc.? Spring 2020 cannot come soon enough!

      36.78 MPG over the 4046 miles, thus ~110 gallons used.

      Described the whole thing in excruciating detail here:

      The TL;DR version: Be prepared for anything, and if you've already done some LD-style riding, this starts to get painful about day four - get in shape.

      I think I'd only seen a couple of YT videos on LD rides greater in length or duration than a 50CC over the last several years, which is what made me put my first videos together nearly two years ago. Since you can't replace a YT video directly, I've recently updated those original videos by putting captions on the videos for locations - for those that might be interested.

      It's just so difficult to try and share the experience of a multi-day ride of this magnitude, beyond the written RR I did. Now, for most readin' this blog pos...y'all get it. The challenge is to NOT bore someone to tears, but share what's flying by, as you accomplish rides of these types of magnitudes. Really, only LD riders 'get it' - yet, there's still entertainment that is wanted.

      In a couple of days, I'll have the rest of the 48 State Challenge (well, most of it...) that I captured as a video on YT as well. I'll be linking it here as well.
