Shit. Off to a rocky start.

– we left sat instead of fri

– night before leaving I dropped a bolt into my engine while double checking valves. It fell down the center cavity into the crankcase. By a miracle of god I fished it out somehow…

– morning we left Adams bike pissed out a quart of oil all over his rear tire on the highway. His starter freeze plug popped out. (Above pic)

– we are staying with Adams sister in buffalo ny right now

– we did 450 miles to get to buffalo. Not fun. Trying to keep it around 200 per day

– we ate buffalo wings. Not bad

– I was out till 5am last night
