2013 Iron Butt Rally

This year's Iron Butt Rally starts this weekend, in Pittsburgh, PA. This will be my first, and it should be quite an adventure. Currently an hour or so outside of PA, getting new tires and and oil change. I believe there are 2 or 3 other barf members that may be joining me at the start line. The online links are just starting to get busy, and might be interesting to follow over the next two weeks.

Made it successfully through registration, tech inspection, and the odo check this morning. Now I have to actually ride this silly event. There's a mandatory meeting for rookies in a half hour.

We received the leg 1 packets tonight, and the event is underway. There is an embargo on posting/blogging/tweeting/whatever by any riders that goes into effect tomorrow morning at 8, and remains through the end of the event. So this is going to be it for me, and my next posts will be after the conclusion of the whole enchilada. The 1st leg had some interesting choices, everywhere from the furthest northeast areas of Canada, to west of Detroit, and as far south as Key West, FL. The reason I'm still posting now is that I'm amped up from several hours of planning and routing, and I think I have a decent one mapped out. Hoping for limited weather problems in the directions I'm heading, and my plan is designed so I shouldn't be too much under the gun to get back here by Thursday evening. But time will tell. The daily reports from Bob Higdon have started here, so even though riders can't post, people can still follow along pretty well:

Knowing a little about Alex, he's probably staying up and re-calcing his waypoints to the Nth degree to squeeze out another 1/100th of a mile, minute or second. He's a navigational warrior that way.

He is not allowed to barf

Only ride, sleep, eat and .....

Pretty cool to see his prowess as an endurance rider mature.



Hope your loving it man.

I hope you didn't get caught up in some of that horrible weather I'm seeing back East. Looking forward to the full report.
