Chase Recap:

Pre Chase

I bought and picked up a new-to-me Ford Explorer the day before this chase. I got the Explorer home in the evening and worked on wiring it up until 3am. This would be the maiden chase for the Explorer.

Leaving Norman

I didn’t leave particularly early since I was up late wiring the Explorer.
