Checking on the Trifecta finishers list and I see names I recognize:

Watkins, Dickson, Murray, Ryan and Rice (May be others?)

FWIW... 1/2 of the 12 finishers I believe to be on this forum.

If it wasn't for this forum, I know I probably would not have joined the Iron Butt Assoc.
I have had members from this forum witness for me, ride with me, show up to encourage
me, give me a place to stay, help me with repairs, offer advice on equipment... the list goes
on. LD riding has really been an enjoyable passion of mine.

Thanks goes out to everyone who gives advice and refuge and any other support. :clapping:

You, my friend, have always been a bit twitchy. I fear you do that particular ride.....we'll have break out the Orbitoclast.

They had to stack two multi-day rally points together plus a promise of a paper certificate signed by Kneebone to get me to do it....and I'm only 90% back to normal 6 months after.

I was just thinking the same thing :P

After the big announcement is made Matt looks at me "I'll see you in New York" my Reply "I doubt it" :blink:

3600 miles in 3 days was enough for this kid :)

One hell of a ride in Rally Mood though

DAMN. I got a headache thinking about this. How much sleep is accomplished in those 3 days? Doing the math, that's kind of an expensive 3 days as well at today's gas prices. Nonetheless, congrats to those who have done this!
