For those familiar with past Iron Butt Rallies, you already know there is an official "reporter" giving daily progress reports of the ride. Well, Tom Austin, noted IBA author, has published the first report. They are well written and wonderful reading, often including riveting tails of rider's trials and tribulations. A quick read has already given me some key information for my route planning... see if you can figure out what that is.
Official IBA daily report #1 of the 2010 Iron Butt 5000 (pdf file format)
Soon I will be knee deep in the rally and will hand over the keyboard to Jennifer. If it turns out that she is not able to post during the rally, we'll try to provide links to the official IBA daily reports. And hopefully I can give a ride report after the finish.
