At the half way point I am elated to report, I have made it!!! I have made it to the average I need to be at to finish in 90 days. I think this will mean the 2nd half of my trip will be much more manageable enjoyable and relaxed. Just need to keep to 125 per day. I have been covering some HUGE distances over the last 2 weeks. Will be good to take it a little easier.
