Thumbs up

Congrats!
I'm jelous in a "I'm glad it wasn't me way"
I would like to get a 1000 in 24 under my belt though. I just really don't travel outside of a 400 mile radius. So I guess running down hwy 5 to take a leak at buzz's house and riding back home has never appealed to me.
You did it right and went somewhere you wanted to go.

Thanks Fenton, Making a round trip is the easiest. It looks like you'll have to get a new turn around point. Buzz's is closed down.

He is not a fan of 'endurance rides'.

TallPaul - another great post! You're crazy, but Thanks!

No biggie. he already understands these kinds of rides are stupid and pointless, as well as being dangerous. If you take a week to do the same ride, you actually see something and enjoy it. What a concept!

Thanks for sharing, TallPaul. Too bad our former women's moderator, Sachi, wasn't here to enjoy your tale. She is an endurance nut.
