Contest...2011 Cape Hatteras arrival time. 1 day to enter

Post by Bob » Fri Oct 14, 2011 7:38 am

I woke up this morning and realized that I forgot to do the annual contest for guessing when we will arrive in Cape Hatteras. So here it is.

I'll give some info to help.

1) Our best guess for leaving is around 12:00 - 1:00 PM today Friday the 14th.
2) There is an hour time difference. It's one hour earlier in OBX.
3) The time used is when we cross the first house on HWY 12 once we reach Rodanthe/Mirlo Beach.
4) Top 3 choices will win a prize.
5) Game ends anytime before we reach our destination, but I won't give any updates on our progress as we're traveling. No calling/texting Jens either for any clues. LOL.
6) One guess per person.

Good luck and we've actually had riders guess the exact time of arrival.

6:35 AM...we hauled ass and made it in 18.5 hours. Timing was such that there was no traffic at all around chicago and we hit DC at 1:00 Am and even though there was construction, no traffic.

The trip has been great as always with some insane winds yesterday, great winds a few days ago and a few SUP days. Rode 4 days so far and this week looks decent.

Winner was Herb with 7:48.
