I'm no Iron Butt wannabe. But I get a particular satisfaction, in my old age, every time I overcome a long-day challenge. Sometimes that's 700 miles of "gotta be their TODAY". Sometimes it's simply my destination is 1500 miles away and I pick 2 wheels over 4.

Is it true Eric is running this year? Regardless of the banter he gets into around here, I would be a fan of his. Kinda cool to know somebody that's pushing the limits of what we crazy humans can accomplish.
What would make it almost bearable is how large groups get together and do it stateside. I'd hate doing it with only one or two riders. Fighting all of the discomfort along with trying to shake off bouts of drowsiness is kinda daunting when you're by yourself and the few others are spread out. Also, I value my naps at this age. ;)
