Thanks again to everyone that participated it has helped me a lot in learning what it takes to be a good RM. It's better for all of us to make mistakes here and not while rallying. Smile

Derick if you would email me your address I will get with Dave Weber and get the trophy mailed out to you. Congratulations on your impressive route!!!!!

RE: Arm Chair Rally Results
And I thought I'd screwed the pooch. As I passed Tucson, AZ heading West I started seeing other riders heading East. First it was Cruzin', then right behind him I see DrPhil. I wasn't too concerned but then I see JohnF and figure I missed something in the route sheet.

I made great time across the California Desert and Central Nevada, but had a hell of a time getting through Glacier. Must have dropped my bike 4 or 5 times. Luckily I didn't see any Moose there or in Yellowstone.

When I pulled into the finish I didn't see anyone. Figured at that time I had really missed the boat. Cruzin' comes in with 2 minutes left on the clock and I know he's had great run. Imagine my surprise when they call his name before mine. Talk about a close finish, 135 points is all that separated us after all those days on the road.

Great riding with everyone and hope to see you all again next year. Many thanks to Chad for all the work setting this up!

My 2up partner decided we had other things to do Saturday, so I started late and I didn't get the route finished. I'm still going to play with the map and see how I would have done.
