Re: Iron Butt Of Iron Butts
That was an amazing accomplishment.
I know that I will be starting a fire storm by my comments, but I just don't understand why anyone would want to make such a long, quick trip when there is so much to see and experience, if you just slow down and stop to take advantage of the time. To just see how quickly you can cover a distance seems like such a waste of valuable time.
I say this as I get ready to leave on my first Iron Butt 1,000 Saturday morning. I was not planning to do this and only agreed after being asked to join someone at the last minute. Maybe I'll change my mind and have a different opinion after I finish!
Maybe it's like climbing the highest mountain in the quickest time or making the most number of skydives in 24 hours.
Personally, I think I'd rather enjoy the moment and stretch out the experience. Crossing the US in 2-3 weeks would be more enjoyable and scenic.
