New York, New York!

We made it!  The Illini 4000 is in the Big Apple! 

Most of the team arrived yesterday by means of either Amtrak Train or in the Support vehicle.  The train departed from Union Station in Chicago Tuesday night, and after 20 hours of riding the rails we finally arrived yesterday evening.  Jon, Amy, Matt, Connie, and Rachel braved the long journey crammed in a support vehicle along with most of our equipment (Big thanks to them), and Sandra, Andrew, and Yiming met us in New York!

The team is being put up in New York by the Chabad House near Columbia’s Campus just a few blocks from Central Park.  It’s a great location and only a stonesthrow away from our starting location!  A big thank you to Rabbi Blum for letting us stay.

Also, we’d really like to thank Mr. Mooney of Mooney Chevrolet in Dekalb, IL., who has been kind enough to donate our support vehicle for the trip.

It’s incredible to be here in New York, enjoying our last day of rest before we take off tomorrow morning.  Time to go tune up our bikes!  See you all tomorrow!
