Beautiful chunk of country though, and it would give me something to train for and look forward to.

I think I'll plan on it and see how training goes.

The follow vehicle deal is a no go for me.

Why? It means I could run a really nice, fast tire and not have to worry about it, nor carrying supplies. And can swap helmets and get real food and re-up sunblock.

Or is this just me being lucky with a wife who's fully on-board with this sort of insanity?

Best DIY solution I've seen is an approx 2x3' coroplast lawn sign with a hole cut out. Installed over a standard ball cap and secured with duct tape, this guy was walking around with six square feet of personal shade.

200 would be a distance that I'd be interested in. 380+ or 1,000? Eff that noise.

The 56th fighter wing is painting their F-16s. No more two-tone grey. Just going with solid dark grey :(

That is sad. That was an iconic paint job.

Wonder what they're checking on the laptop. Maybe they forgot what the tail number is???

Yeah a double is right on being a good challenge. 383 and a kilomile are just craziness. That’s what those RAAM types are though.

Wife wanted to have some margaritas on the patio at a local restaurant, but we have kids that need to get to bed and it's a cool, Friday evening after a week-long warm spell, so most places are packed. She did not hesitate to give me the green light to pick up some tequila and Grand Marnier when I suggested that I make some at home, though. :D

I agree.

P.S. Nine days does not a season make.

P.S.S. Interesting that the 90 minutes of rain I sat through yesterday did not record at TYS, 15 miles away. Thanks for posting.

Where's @BillyD? He needs to HTFU and post some quality content.

Simply Limeade works pretty well(instead of sour mix).

I am hoping he is sleeping it off and recovering from today's trauma.

Heal up BillyD !

Yup, plus Emma Pooley (remember her from GCN?) broke the women's record.

Being on board is super cool, and I understand the supplies deal. I'm just accustomed to being self-supported, and that doesn't bug me at all. Something like the HooDoo or Furnace Creek appealed to me, with drop bags and such.
