My hubbie is officially an Iron Butt Motorcyclist! He just arrived in Ontario, California (Los Angeles) to the final checkpoint at 5:30 am (PST). He said he got to see the lights of L.A. in the valley as he rode in - kinda celebratory. The man sounds happy and relieved.
He says he has a photo, which I'll post as soon as I get it. The banquet is tonight, and then he begins the journey back to Atlanta. Can't wait to have my hubbie home. What an accomplishment!!!
PS - Funny story - he rode through a dust storm yesterday and said he'd never been so dirty in his life. He's showered since then... Here is a photo of his bike (which is still filthy) last night in Barstow.
