Thought I would post a quick LD update. Last weekend I participated in the Minuteman 1K rally. I placed in second behind Jim Abbott. I was really happy with my result. At the current time I have to post trip reports for the Iron Butt 5000 (5 days, 5000 miles), Rendezvous Rally 2010 (placed second), Cape Fear 2011 and the Minuteman 1K 2011 rally. Yep I am getting behind but I will get to it over the summer!
Right now I am finalizing my preparations for the Iron Butt Rally (11,000 miles (18,000kms) in 11 days). Lots of things to do over the next two weeks. I leave to ride out to the IBR start in Seattle, Washington in about 2 weeks time. The first IBR checkpoint will be all the way back in Buffalo, New York 4 days later (only 3 hours from my home). The 2nd checkpoint is Jacksonville, Florida about 2 days later and the finish will be in Ontario, California. I expect to have travelled about 15,000 - 17,000 miles (24000 - 27000 kms) in 4 weeks. It is the adventure of a lifetime and I am fortunate to be able to participate.
Be sure to check back as I will be posting by IBR report asap when I get back (yes the other reports will have to wait).
