This is his latest post on FB, at about 1 AM:

"Found a county park to stop for the night and they have a campground! Got a shower and tent is set up. Going to get 4-5 hours sleep to celebrate my two back to back 1000 mile days in the Hoka Hey.
Will post name of park in morning"

He did turn over 310,000 miles on the Sportster on the trip out.
