Back home again . . . another great trip resulting in 3500+ miles added to the odometer. It was nice to meet several new faces on this run too.

Those strong winds in Colorado resulted in 14 tornadoes in the midwest and a pear tree destroying some gutters on my house. A hassle for me but no big deal compared to what many in Illinois have to deal with after these storms. It would have happened whether I had been home or not.

Fun trip! Hope the cop was lenient on you for touching the white line in the wind! He probably pulled you over because of the Indiana plates.

Thanks for posting pics guys. I didn't get to take very many and only had my phone anyway. Pictures just don't do that place justice!

He said my plates came up as expired. I had the "14" sticker on the plate and, of course, I had my current registration and all and he double checked them. He said fake "14" stickers on the plates are common but said Indiana did not update my plate when I last renewed them so I have to stop at the DMV. When he pulled me over, I thought maybe I was dropping dirt chunks on the highway from the wheeling I did in Uncompahgre before running the Maze. The trooper was cool (no ticket or written warning) and all was fine.
