100 CCC attempt JAX support (March 2-6)?


Hello Kitty

Recommended Posts

While I cleared out the garage and parked the bikes in the driveway Leslie "ret up" the guest room:

Soon Miss Kitty pulled up in the driveway about 11:30pm:

She got the requisite MamaHoon hug while Maggie waited her turn:

. . . while I set to work troubleshooting. Is it this one?

How about this one?

And who's in here?? No one! lmao.gif

Time to start digging deeper . . . .

Meanwhile, the ladies enjoy a cuppa tea and get better acquainted while we pawn off some yummy leftovers! grin.gif

I finally found the problem--the wire in the cord on her jacket right near the plug had been bent and broken. I managed to solder it up in an ugly splice and bury my handiwork under a few feet of electrical tape--but it worked! clap.gif

 

We finally turned in (too late) and as TonyM315 would say: "Morning came early . . . . " (We miss you Tony!! wave.gifbncry.gif )

 

As the sun was coming up, we signed paperwork and Leslie said her goodbyes to our intrepid traveller:

Making ready for departure to the beach:

Why is there never a cop when you need one?? lmao.gif

 

We got to the beach in a few short minutes, just as the sun was breaking through over the mountains to the east. The surf was going off and a few of the locals were braving the cold temps to get in a session before work:

Nancy hit the beach:

The following is a series of Nancy gathering her sand and water. There were numerous gulls flying around, surfers riding the breaks, waves crashing against the underside of the pier, and also visible on the western horizon as the sun was coming up in the east: the bright lights of a squid trawler can be seen:

I signed off her start time and we then went the few blocks to Johnny's Shell station for the final top off of fuel and double check her tires' air:

I had to rush off for work, but I left her in high spirits and riding into a beautiful sunrise with the prospects of a GORGEOUS day's riding ahead. It was a supreme pleasure to have made Miss Kitty's acquaintance and we wish her more fair skies and following winds on her way home! wave.gif

 

 

Also a HUGE THANKS to all our moto-family here who supported her on her quest and who have once again proved us to be the best friends one could have on the road--or anywhere else!! cool.gif

 

GO NANCY GO!!!!!!!!!! clap.gifclap.gifclap.gifclap.gifclap.gifclap.gifclap.gifclap.gifclap.gifclap.gif

HEY JAX CREW.....

 

If anyone can get me a MONEY shot of her coming in to Jax - I would REALLY appreciate it. I'd love to have her on our newsletter as the "Cover Shot"!!! Nancy is also the VP of our club so we are proud of her in many ways!!

 

Thanks to everyone who has helped her out so far and to everyone in the future! You guys are GREAT!!! clap.gifclap.gifclap.gif

OK Floridians, we need an update. thumbsup.gif

 

Keep your pants on.......grin.gif

 

 

She's still in Texas and has till 11am tomorrow to taste the salt air of the Atlantic.

 

 

She sounded great last night from Demming, but that front tire could still slow her down.

 

 

I'm sure she'll check in with someone soon. thumbsup.gif

I haven't heard any new this morning, but when looking back at the pictures I noticed the tell tale teal pant leg of her lucky PJ's peaking from the bottom over her over pants. thumbsup.gif

Oh boy, this must be sign of age. That's the second time today (and it's only 9 am) that I thought it was Thursday. dopeslap.gif

 

 

Don't feel bad, Albert. I thought yesterday was Wednesday, too! In a PM to "tallman", I gave him the wrong day (calculating from Wednesday morning dopeslap.gif ) . . . so he'll be expecting her on Friday! crazy.gif

 

 

 

"Hey, Tim!!!" wave.gif

 

lmao.gif

 

 

 

 

 

Pants safely back on. blush.gif

 

Well thank doG for THAT!! eek.giflmao.gif

I just got a call from Nancy. She is in Seguin, TX fueling up for the next tank. I thought she sounded great, focused and alert and in good spirits. At her rest stop last night, she had a pretty bad nose bleed (unknown cause, told her to drink more water) but says she is fine now.

 

She also asked me to pass on to all those that have offered lodging as she moves east, that she is trying to stay focused on the task at hand and thinks it would be easier for her to just ride until she needs a rest and get a hotel room right off the Interstate and not try and coordinate a meeting. She is a little overwhelmed at the enthusiasm of others and the acts of downright kindness shown her on this quest.

 

When I know something you'll know.

 

GO NANCY!! clap.gifclap.gif

You go Nancy!

Glad to hear she's making such good progress, but that was a long time without an update. I guess you don't have to stop too often when you are carrying your own fuel tanker! grin.gif

Sorry to say I won't be one of her escorts in to Jax, but I will be at the firehouse to take pics.

 

Does anyone know if she's rolling in to Jax Bch. or Neptune Bch.?

What's the ETA? I've already cleared my calendar for the morning and can be there when she hits the county line. Anyone else planning on it?

If she calls me instead of texting I'll try and get an ETA. Give me an Exit on I-10 where your thinking about waiting and I'll try and work it out. She makes calls to different peeps on a rotating basis (even though I wish they were all to me, sorry Walt; I'm on pins and needles) so I may not be the blessed recipient of a call at the right time.

 

GO GIRL!!! clap.gifclap.gifclap.gifclap.gif

She doesn't need to stop for us, we can roll in behind her.

 

Just tell her not to freak out if some nutjob in a big maroon Silverado is beside her pointing a camera at her. It's just me. grin.gif

Neptune is the plan, I spent time and showed her around. She knows where Jax Beach is and the police station....etc..

 

She is a big girl.... I believe she has proven that.... give her some room.

She told me she wanted to get her Bun Burner Gold (1500 in 24hrs) on this trip. Maybe today is the day??????
