I just spent 11 hours in the saddle (13 hours total) to go a measly 502 miles. That was a heckuva ride. The last 240 from Cold Foot was very challenging due to the road conditions and road work. A guy who drives the Haul Road three times a week said they are sprucing it up because some state officials are coming. Otherwise, they wouldn't be working on it.
I guess they save money on signs.
