i wasn't invited? you're just a couple thousand miles from me
as long as you hit over 1,000 miles within 24 hours, you obtained iron butt status. i know what you mean about hallucinations, kind of. last year, at 29, i almost hit iron butt status w/o intending to beforehand. my buddy and i were heading from Austin, TX to the Smokeys, and just wanted to make it to Alabama for the first day. we didn't have a set target or miles when we started. we left before 6AM. i hadn't slept since the night before (KIDS DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME) because of my work schedule and couldn't catch any winks before we headed out. i was downing 5 hour energies at every gas stop.Though it took almost 25 hours, while riding to the World's Fair in Knoxville in 1982 I rode my '81 Yammy Virago from Santa Rosa, New Mexico to Nashville, TN, a distance of almost 1100 miles IIRC. Overall it was one ungodly ride, sometimes quite scary. I remember having vivid hallucinations on more than one occasion while riding at night in eastern OK and Arkansas. Once thought I'd run over an African lion and a couple cows. Even at 26 you still still sometimes do some pretty dumb things.
