Maybe I'll try for the spring of 2012 and earn my place among the IB's of the world.
OK... truly... that route is probably not that bad... and if the weather holds out right now, you could probably do it tomorrow. I hear at the end of the week a cold front is coming through, at which point I would not recommend it.

It was definitely an adventure... not something I am really willing to do again, at least not for that particular award. Perhaps some other award, like the coast to coast or something like that.

As for being put of riding... not a chance. I got home at 4am, took a long shower, then went to bed for three hours. Woke up, did my check-in for the finish of the run, and met up with a group of riders and went off for another 250 miles or so down to Ozello Trail and back...

I thought about doing that, but figured that the first award was enough... I wasn't planning on doing the 1500 in the first place, and thought it was a better idea not to do something that wasn't planned. In addition, I didn't have the waypoints setup in my mind for an extra 500 miles.
