I've never used a blog before. I'm not really sure what I can do with one but I'm willing to investigate its possibilities. I actually signed up for a free blog account before last summer's 2005 Iron Butt Tour but I never used it. I thought I would try posting to the blog while I was on the road. Once I was on the road, however, I found I didn't have the time to figure out how to use the damn thing. Also, almost all the people I wanted to communicate with about my ride are here so I just posted in the forum like I always have.
So, in the interest of experimentation, I am going to pretend that I'm back on the road again. I will extract my entries from the 2005 Iron Butt Tour that have long since been buried in the forum and reprint them here. I will try and put one new entry per day in this blog to simulate the effect of my actually posting from various places across the country. I might even fill in the blanks between posts with new posts that I didn't have a chance to make while I was on the road. Anyway, this is what I would have done with a blog last summer if I'd had one set up so we'll see how it works here. Let me know what you think.
