I'm Gearing Up for a Pain-in-the-Butt Summer Adventure

The Shadow
I have a plan. A plan that will take me on a Summer adventure. An adventure that will cause me incredible amounts of pain in the butt -- literally -- but will give me a lifetime of good stories to tell.

My adventure is called The Saddle Sore 1,000, sponsored by the Iron Butt Association!

The Saddle Sore 1,000 is a motorcycle endurance ride, where the biker rides 1,000 miles in less than 24 hours. The biker keeps a log book, jots down where and when he fuels up, and proves that he made the trip through timed receipts and eyewitnesses at the beginning and end. The biker then sends his documentation to Iron Butt Headquarters, and after the ride is verified, he receives a certificate, a pin and a license plate back.

Yep! That sounds like MY kind of an adventure.

I'm not sure what route I'll take, or my exact date of departure, but I best start getting in shape now. Wouldn't want to flake out in the middle of the ride just because my body can't take the stress.

Saddle Sore 1,000. It's not just a ride -- it's an adventure!
