Saturday morning,  departed Amarillo in a heavy downpour at 8am with just 50 feet of visibility. As we pulled out from the hotel, a small group gave looks at the Ranger as if he was crazy to depart under those weather conditions. Soon we were heading south toward Lubbock, Texas—the home of the late singer, Buddy Holly, and his band, the Crickets. After an hour of riding, the skies cleared and we proceeded at a steady 80 mph clip with strong cross-winds. The cold front soon passed astern as we outran the weather system. The 500 plus miles of today’s (and the final day’s) ridel went fast. It was a good ride and by 4:20pm we reached home—New Braunfels after a long ride. Rich Gillard (class mate) plus a mystery guest were interviewed in this video. Thank you all for riding along during the 40 days. Our efforts to reconnect and reunite with class mates was successful—especially because of all of you. Thank you for riding along on this 9,200 mile journey over the 40 days 8 hours and 20 minutes.
