My ride plans for the "It ain't Cody tour":
Thursday the 25th:
Riding to Waysider Restaurant in Tuscaloosa for breakfast. Making a couple stops along the way to the Eldorado Resort in Shreveport, La.
Friday the 26th: Dissecting Texas on the way to Las Cruces, NM. to meet my Army son.
Saturday the 27th: Ride along the Rio Grande in his attempt
to complete an Iron Butt.
I stress "attempt" because he has no idea. So you "IB" Bashers, your comments aren't welcome here. His plan to do an IB is a huge reason I passed on Cody and am riding to meet him.
It will be interesting to say the least. He rides a Sport Bike with minimal wind protection and only 120 mile range. I asked what his plan for hydration in 95f plus temps were. He responded "I keep a bottle of water in my jacket".
That's where Ol' Dad comes in. I will take an extra hydration kit and cooling vest for when he cries "Uncle". I can also keep an eye on him in case we need to shut the mission down.
I WILL be posting pics along the way......
