Yeah, JtB, I'm thinking going to B-ham, Memphis, Fort Smith, AR, Oklahoma City, Amarillo, Albuquerque, Page AZ, then to St. George. Would love to have some company, hope you can make it!
We want to possibly stop over in Page and do some photography in the slot canyons then do a leisurely ride into St. G....
It's roughly 1940 miles that route, and we want to do it in no more than three days.....I'm gonna try to get off early the Friday night before and leave that Saturday morning, getting to 1000 miles and stopping where ever it might be (which from Newnan Ga. that would be SHAMROCK TEJAS!!! Just inside the border from Oklahoma..... I know it's pretty difficult to do an Iron Butt with meeting up with folks and all, so, it's really just about the ride!!!! I WANNA RIDE!!! Can ya tell I'm ready ta go!!!???
Anything else is up to our whims, including pace, GF's gonna work on her Iron Butt with me....it's pretty firm right now....but I digress
I agree with the idea of hauling butt through the boring stuff and doing some back roads in the nicer areas....we won't be in that much of a hurry....we just want to get out where we've never been!
So we are thinking maybe IB'ing it out past Oklahoma City the first night....
