Saddlesore 1000

Finally got the package in the mail.  There was a snafu caused by me using a cashier's check, but it got sorted out, and how I'm bona fide!  Is that the right context for "bona fide"?  Eh, whatever, it works.

If you don't know about the Iron Butt Association (which is what the Saddlesore 1000 is part of) you can check it out at the link.  I've done one, and despite me saying that I was one and done, I'm kinda itching to do it again.

Congrats. I got my SaddleSore 1000 in July, 1997 by riding a 1976 Honda Gold Wing from Oracle, AZ, to Katy, TX.

I did it with a group of folks, round trip. It wasn't too bad, until we got to Wyoming, and the temperature dropped into the 40s, and it started raining, and my cold weather gloves were nice and safe in the Mrs. truck, which was trailering a bike back to the SLC area. That was the coldest my hands have ever been.

I don't mind riding in the cold, and I don't mind riding in the rain, as long as it's one or the other! Cold, wet hands are no fun!

I learned a lesson. Gloves always, always, always go into the saddlebags. I don't know why I left them in the truck.
