Catfish has left the building
This morning our man Catfish left the Isle of Long in the dark hours of the morning heading for Spartanburg, South Carolina. He carries with him a pocket full of his friends well wishes and excitement as he is about to embark on this crazy journey that is the 2009 Iron Butt Rally.
Competitors have been arriving at the Rally headquarters all throughout the day. The buzz is starting; pictures are popping up all over the web. As of this moment there are only 2 days, 10 hours before the flag drops.
As of 9:00 PM tonight, Catfish was still on the road. Road construction delays, oppressive humidity, 100 degrees showing on the air temperature dial and 1 broken helmet visor fixed with duct tape. Welcome to life on the road!
Stay tuned for more updates!
