    A good app for this is WeatherBug.  I use it at work. It can be set to alert you of changes in cities you’re planning on being in.

    The Central Route has a pretty steady core of around 300 bikes, as stated above that includes ambassodors andadvance teams.  There is a video on you tube from 2012 (rftw bounce video) taken at the OOIDA head headquartes at exit 24 in Missouri that shows platoons, and is a good one if you want to count.  The narration was me talking to Reed Black from OOIDA.  I was not aware that the sound was on, so it is a little goofy.   We have had some years on CR that some days have had over 600 riders in the pack plus the advance teams, and some where with advance teams we are at 300 total.  Every leg and every day is different.  A lot of the counts are total registered.  If all three routes stayed together there could be as many as 7 to 8 hundred bikes in the pack, hence 3 routes, 1 mission.

    Thumb,

    I have often stated that this mission of ours should come with a warning, in that if you get involved, even do just one leg of it, eventually you will find yourself in LA and hope you have planned well enough to have enough cash to get home.   I did not get to meet you but I am glad that you are recovering from your mishhap, and that you are part of the family.  As for the allergy, well it is contagious, as mine acted up while I was reading your wonderful words.

    Thank you for your service and welcome home.

    See you in 2017 in LA.

    Takes about 25 minutes to fuel everyone and stage, then we hit the head.  Lines depending on route and fuel stop can be long.  If at a truck stop there are two mens bathrooms and two womens bathrooms at most of them.  The one for truckers is usually large enough to keep the lines down.  As for time to get it done there is plenty.  I have done the CR 9 times, and the last 6 times I am the last bike in line for fuel, and usually by the time I get to the bathroom there really is not a line.
