Thanks for the well wishes, everyone. All of the segments posted as expected this morning, so I am at 97.5 with 3 planned segments remaining. I am feeling fairly triumphant at this point in the home stretch

My helpful and patient ground crew/girlfriend (not on FT... yet) points out that I failed to publicly thank her earlier for her helpfulness and patience over the weekend. In truth, she was extremely accommodating (of my insanity) and gave me assistance with routing/weather advice.

You should consider writing a trip report
Second the motion of a trip report!

We do not need pictures if you do not have them taken or sorted.

Definitely have to thank the ground crew there. Otherwise you could run in to trouble quickly. Good that you have a very understanding and helpful girlfriend.

I think this was my favorite FT thread so far. Next time, though, try for better weather.

My family and I were following this thread with much anticipation. We thought it would make a great movie script for the concept of a mileage run
