Thanks. Ride safe. BTW, I-95 is not one of my favorite roads.. Lots of very aggressive cagers in a big hurry.

I'm leaving for my Iron Butt at 0300 on the 7th. Should be blowing by your neck of the woods at about 0600, but I'll be...alone!

What is your route? I think it would be harder to do alone. Last Iron Butt ride took us north to Syracuse NY, up to Niagra Falls then down to Erie and around PA. If you are reasonably close, maybe we can meet and conquer one sometime in the future. That was my first, and It wasn't as though as I thought it would be. Ride safe, stay alert!

Leaving Southern Maryland, heading north to catch I-70 across to Dayton. At Dayton I'll swing a bit south and hit some of the nicer roads for the return. I have it done on Google Maps, but am having trouble getting that data to my phone for navigation. I'll figure it out though.

I have done IBA rides solo and with groups. I think solo is a lot easier.
Group rides can be fun but it can add to the challenge.

Good luck and have fun on your ride.

Craig, do you live near Patuxant NAS? I went to college at St. Mary's many moons ago. Loved that area. Have fun!

I know what you are saying, but I tend to get sleepy on long trips after many hours in the saddle when riding solo (even when stopping regularly to run around a bit). I am planning on riding solo from Maryland to Bioca Raton, FL this summer. For those who can't keep up....well, we'll give em beer money and see them back home!
