Last years events seemed like a huge batch of fun. Great roads, amazing scenes lots of DMLer shenanigans...
After last year, there was some talk of a few folks gaining up with a truck and trailer and driving straight though or perhaps 2-day it. There were a couple plans, and even a 'sponsoring' offer from someone who wantere their bike, but wanted to fly.
Personally, I'd be willing to be a driver. But I have no truck or trailer to offer... just ability to drive and a wish to get my bike there too.
Long trip. 1927 miles from DC. mapsource says 31 1/2 hrs straight. And thats via interstates. If i ride, it will be 2 days out and 2 days back. Hmmmm...IBA has a Saddlesore 5000 catagory. 5000 miles in 5 days. This might work. That works out to roughly 34 trips to the gas station. No lack for time and location stamped reciepts!
Reality would have me putting a class 3 receiver hitch on my Jetta TDI and renting a small 2 bike trailer. The Jetta has a 2k lb tow rating.
