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.

Shockey lands on #3

From Ben:

"left this morning just before 9 a.m. with an actual temp somewhere around -4* so i headed north with a gentle tail wind hoping that by the time i turned around the temp would have risen some. made it up to hesper then headed west til i was north of bluffton. came south through bluffton and continued south just a bit before heading west toward ridgeway. when i turned south just before ridgeway the temp had come up but unfortunately the wind had as well. had enough miles to go south til i was just below highway 9 that the wind really beat me up. headed back east then and got to finish with a handful of miles going north/northeast so the wind kinda blew me home. ended up around 66 miles (fixed). now its off to the bar for the next 8 hours (unfortunately just to work)."
