July 4 Stats

In an effort to get closer to Key West, Arvid pushed very hard today, covering 372 km. With having to wait out the thunderstorm we went an hour longer, finishing the day at 11 pm.

Our ‘night nap’ is done and we are on the road at 4:50am.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances, (weather conditions) we hope and plan to make it to Key West before nightfall TODAY!!!

Arvid's Role
