Ironb Butt 2013

Iron Butt Rally begins on Monday. Bob Higdon is reporting again this year. I believe some of our most esteemed members on here are running this year. No list yet and no reports but here is the link.

Yep, watching that site anxiously. I REALLY like Higdon;s reports. Glad to see him back.

Re: Ironb Butt 2013

Another fine resource for current information is the fjr forum. (fjrforum.com)

I had one of my monitors dedicated to following the IBR two years ago. An excellent way to blow of almost 10 days of work.

Re: Ironb Butt 2013

Word has it the rally will be more in line with tradition compared to 2011. In 2013 it will be much more difficult to become a finisher. 2011 one only had to do the 48 state deal rather easy mileage to become a finisher. Shall be fun to follow..

+ 1 on that Dave. Higdon has a way of reporting the rally that seems to put the reader right in the action. Glad he's back.
