A charity Iron Butt Saddlesore ride for 2022
« on: June 25, 2021, 11:07:32 am »
With many thanks to RichVee4 and A Dragon, I was able to successfully complete this year's Saddlesore 1000 Iron Butt ride.  It wasn't without its own bit of drama and obstacles, but I think that's just part of what makes it a challenge.

This year's ride wasn't as well planned as my others and if I had put some forethought into it, I would have turned it into a charity ride of some sort.  The idea isn't new.  I just don't know enough about doing charity events to add that to the list of items I have to accomplish, along with actually doing the riding bit.

Now that I'm done with this year's ride event, I can focus my attention on next year's and getting the charity stuff created.  Just one more added reason to keep doing these, but now with more purpose.
It's about taking in the most corners to your destination, not about the shortest, quickest route.

Wait, what?  So you're bailing on this year?
