Same here. What a goat-rope that was. Good luck!!!!! Please let us know your experience with that corridor. My experience through there just wasn't much fun.

Good Luck. I think what you have chosen to do is gonna be tough. I think it can be done, but everything has to go just right.

I have done several 1030 mile rides (I know the exact distance because I have measured it 4 times)...and it took me 18 hours the first time, 17:45 the second time and 17:30 the last time I did it...

You're going 120 miles further...so make your stops SHORT.

YAY! I left GA at 5:40, arrived at my brother's at 1:15. I 95 is a nut house for sure. Sore butt and hands, but i made it. No one tried to kill me either.
