Going to attempt my first Iron But Ride tomorrow. Hitting the road at 6:00, and will be trying my first 1000 miles in 24 hours. Leaving Austin, and heading up to the Twin Cities to catch 494. Heading West into North Dakota. Will go to Bismarck, and then turn around and head back toward Fargo. At Fargo, I am catching 29, and heading South to Sioux Falls, where I will catch I90 East, back to Austin. Totaal miles should be right around 1175. Hopefully everything goes well.

Well, my BigDaddy hubby left this morning at 6am to start his big ride~ Should be pulling into home pretty soon here.......been texting me on his stops (I'm a worrywart) and things went good today. I'm sure he'll have some stories to tell when he gets home!

Made it!! 1080 Miles, and 17.5 hours! Everything went well. Found out that if you want to get decent gas milagge on teh wing, keep it under 70. Got as low as 29 mpg, and as high as 37mpg. I will post more after I have the numbers figured out, and I will post what pics I took. Not many.

I'm gonna guess you averaged about 35MPG overall. That would give probably 5 gas stops. Say maybe 90 minutes total. Make it 16 hous on the road. And that would put your average speed, not counting stops, at about 67MPH. Am I close?

Have you thought about changing your moniker to Bookin' Daddy?

Congrats. Best of all you got home safely without incident.

As a Candy Arsed Tourer I am not interested in doing IB rides. But it is good to see you have done it and safely and I look forward to your report. Eric
