WE HAVEN'T QUIT & WE AREN'T DEAD!
But, it has been a few months since I've posted here on the TR forum. Right now we're in Biloxi, MS on Day #110 of 336, and we've put a little over 4,000 miles on the Rucks so far. Definitely want to thank the guys in VA Beach (SPARKLE.motion) and the guys in Mississippi for hooking us up with rides, parts and maintenance.
Our route has been updated since the last post. If you want to see where we'll be and when we'll be there, check it out here:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... _web#gid=0
Hit us up if we'll be in your area and you want to setup a ride. (We're mostly stock so we're only pushing 38-40mph.)
For those of you who hate FB you can keep up with us on our blog at www.ACProject.org
. I'll start checking and updating TR more often too.
Here are a few highlights of the trip:
First day we rode was 11 below zero. We kept six layers of clothes on until we hit Virginia. We studded our stock tires (which worked great in the snow and ice). Didn't realize how well they worked until we changed them out in VA Beach and got into snow again in WV. We're riding on Polini's now. They feel pretty good.
We got caught in snow a couple times (1 storm dropped 12", the other was just flurries) and we've hit rain five or six times. If you don't mind the cold most of the riding has been great. VERY glad to be in warm weather now though.
We've been having a blast out here on the road, and we've met some great people!
Here's a blog post that highlights the things we found relating to hunger during the first thousand miles. http://acproject-demery.blogspot.com/20 ... miles.html

Check out the rest of our blog for more detailed info. We post something every Sunday (or as close to it) as long as we have an internet connection. Or hit me up here w/ questions/comments.
Also, we're starting to work on putting together a couple t-shirt designs. If anyone knows any designers (or if you are one) please let me know how I can make contact. Thanks!
