Overnight Terry Hershner and Bun Bun ran into a couple delays – an accident on I-10 that blocked the road for a few hours, and then strong headwinds that increased energy usage. Even with that improved aerodynamic fairing, riding directly into a headwind still takes up a lot of energy. They ended up prematurely draining the pack and having to charge on a 120 volt outlet. They eventually made it to a GOE3 charging station from which they could draw 12 kilowatts – closer to their normal charging rate.
The last report I see on his Facebook page came 5 hours ago saying that a “drunk driver” had blocked the road for a few hours. I assume that means a major traffic accident caused by a drunk driver ..etc.. and if we looked at news reports around Tuscon today it’s probably full of gorey stories from the highway.
Because their last report was 5 hrs ago, one hopes that Bun Bun talked Terry into taking a nap …
