180 days.

I've been wishing for an all southern route since, well, the last time we were that way. 

For those of you who've not been in southern Iowa, the hills do not stop, you cannot be fit enough.

Hills, heat, humidity, headwinds; I cannot wait!

200 days. Time to get your livers in proper order!

2016 Ragbrai registration is now open.

251 days. 

It's time for all southern route. Hills that won't stop with heat and humidity; sounds like Nirvana.

Craig, you slay me! 

And I think my liver has to rest just a bit before I resume intensive training...

Kathy, what a fantastic story!!! My wife and I saw you on the route, and I think she even visited with you a little bit ("That's a REAL DOG!"). I wish you many more miles of great riding. 

Oh, and BTW -- you DID see the guy sitting along the road holding the sign that said, "Eligible Bachelor," right?

I didn't do every mile, but I got the best coverage of all 16 RAGBRAIS see it here courtesy of ABC Ch 5 of Des Moines

Oh -- the folks I was with did some fun blogging along the way. Here's a sample, with links on the page to a lot more content...

Didn't do *every* mile -- my wife and I were both afflicted in our nether regions, in spite of 1,200 miles of training. So we had to sag out for a while. Ugh. I've learned that a certain amount of Desitin and Chamois Butt'r in your shorts feels like you didn't quite make it to the Kybo...
