    Day 15 7/13/18
    Key West FL to Dawson, GA

    In the morning, we end up waking and having breakfasttogether anyway. Since we’re together,we head down to the buoy for the souvenir picture. After that, they go on a search for thepolice station in search of a patch for someone special. I decide that my day will be long enough andsay goodbye. With my tanks full from thenight before, I ride towards the mainland.

    I plan to ride until I’m tired, and I also hope that’snorth of Atlanta. The last two days haveseen the temps above 95 for most of the day and over 100 at times. I don’t know what the heat index would havebeen, but it was not a pleasant time.

    I made it to Dawson, GA and decided that was enough. The shower felt great, as did the airconditioning.

    Day 16 7/14/18
    Dawson GA to Bettendorf, IA

    I’m up early one more time without the alarm. I pack my things and head down for the freebreakfast. There’s not much and thecoffee is cold, so a quick cup of water and I head out. There isn’t much to report today. It heats back up by mid-morning. At a gas station in southern Illinois, I graba small bag of ice to throw in my jacket. I had heard about, but never tried this trick before. It works pretty well. I am mostly comfortable all the wayhome.

    It is late afternoon when I open my garage door and rollin. My wife greets me after shortlythereafter. It has been a long trip andI’m glad to be home. I am ready for areal night’s sleep and a regular schedule.

    I have a good idea of what I need to address before theIron Butt Rally next year. The bikeperformed great. I need to add myhydration system and some more lighting.

    Let’s see what comes next.
