Well... Yesterday I unOFFICIALY broke the Guinness World Record for longest journey on a 50cc scooter. I say unofficially because it's not official until I am done with the trip and turn all of my data into Guinness.
Yesterday at about 7:30pm MT, in the city of Paradise, Montana, I hit 8,969 miles, beating the previous record of 8,968 miles. I stopped for a little bit and just celebrated with myself, giving myself a good pep talk, and thought about some of the stuff I have went through on this trip. All the rain, heat, mountains, everything; it was worth this moment. With the sun going down, that moment by myself was cut short, but I will never forget that brief moment on the side of the road, smiling ear to ear. I needed to get back on the road, night driving with bugs is not my favorite. The miles from here on out are tallied toward my record! All miles until Minneapolis are MINE! I ended up in Missoula, Montana.
I just want to thank everyone who has helped me on this journey! All of you are rock stars. And I mean everyone! If you commented, liked, shared, let me crash at your house, supplied me with oil, fuel, spark plug, tires, just about anyone that has been in contact with me, thank you a million times. I couldn't have done this without the help and encouragement from so many of you!
I'm going to continue to head east, I'll probably be in Minneapolis in a week or so.
Total "record" miles and counting : 9,018.28 miles.
