Tom B and others..........arrived in Wisconsin about 40 miles south of Madison yesterday after a 15 hr drive from NC. Opened up the car door and the winds just about blew our luggage out of the car. Was yesterday normal?????? I suspect the average was around 15 mph with gusts 20+. It would certainly have been a blast doing a ride with that kind of tailwind but I couldn't imagine doing 50-60 miles into that stuff.
We noticed a couple of wind farms in northern Illinois within a couple hundred miles of here so maybe there is a strong prevalent wind in the area.
If that is an average day give me NC mountains over the wind anytime!!!
BTW-"America's Largest Water Park" up this way just announced they plan to build a duplicate facility in NC and in my backyard yesterday........and we don't have any water and are under drought restrictions!!!
The Bike Mobile turned over 460,000 miles on the way up.........The "check engine" light came on a week or so ago so I checked the engine and it is still there.
