The goal.....1000 miles in 24 hr. I left after work and rode through the night and the "tail" of Hurricane Dennis......6 hours of driving rain! My speedo read 1108.5 miles.....Iron Butt Assoc. determined my route was 1099 miles. The off route miles were riding around Birmingham, Alabama looking for gas! I arrived in Nashville in time for dinner with Leah 24 hours later.
