1200 Miles & a Cup O' Dirt & a little Mississippi Mud!

Take the year long challenge of completing a dozen or half a dozen dirty centuries and join the fun in December! Everybody who completes this challenge will be rewarded with a custom hand-made stoneware mug as well as be in a drawing for other prizes. Read the FAQ for details, and welcome to the fun!

I've increased the fun to give some more folks a shot at the cup - a bit 'watered down' - We'll have the 1200 Mile Cup O' Dirt and a 600 Mile Cup O' Mississippi Mud and new in 2008 is the 1/2 Liter O' Dirt - earned by completing 12 metric centuries in the year! A special award will be presented to anyone completing either a dirty century or metric century in each month of the year.

It's An Adventure Out There....

I decided to go out for a gravel road ride today while it was warm. I came across several large dogs...all friendly. One encounter was with a rather massive, scraggly St. Bernard that was chowing down on the remains of a deer carcass!!! I was unsure if he killed it himself, if it was road kill or if it was some hunters discard...the blood on his face indicated he was enjoying it though. He tensed up briefly when I rode right by him, but he went back to business when he realized I had no interest in his meal.

It is always an adventure out there.
