Cape Fear Rally...

...is over
RFlagg42 finished 2nd out of the 38 riders who started in Union City TN. This will probably be his last trip East till the start of the Iron Butt Rally.
Lisa finished 12th and I 14th (reading comprehension is a bitch) out of the 18 finishers from Batavia NY. Half of those registered were either did not start or did not finish due to the weather (think they were better at reading comprehension than I am). Rode 1033 miles over the 29 hours of the rally - that includes points for a 6 hour rest bonus.
Learned two things
a. my iron butt is now marshmallow butt
2nd. riding over the Delaware Memorial Bridge in the dark in the rain with 40+ knot winds is not fun. have a real life appreciation for the winds the riders experience on Ruta 40 is Argentine Patagonia.

Wonder if telling Blaster that there is a Waffle House next to rally central in Wilmington NC could tempt him to sign up?
