I bought a RoadID - now a hospital can get all my medical,
insurance, and family info with a phone call or from the
Internet using a serial number and a pin from the tag.

My name, DOB, blood type are on the tag, too. Perfect for
solo activities, or adventurers.

Iron Butt Association

May 27 - Did a Saddlesore1000 ride. (1,000 miles within 24 hours)
1,040 miles in 18 hours.
Left at 2am, waited for another rider until 2:30, then began the ride. Returned just before 8pm.

After the first hour it rained on and off. From sprinkles to deluges through which you could see nothing.
It usually rained right when we hit construction zones. Oklahoma was mostly construction zones.

The construction and rain put us behind schedule. I wanted to get home before dark. We hit the turn-around
point in Denton after 10 hours (12 noon) so we had to push on strongly on the return trip.

My next feat will be a Coast-to-Coast in under 50 hours

After that, who knows. Maybe a National Park Tour......
Day trip (508.8 miles - 8+ hours)
