|Hoping to spend lots of time out here this winter.|
First up, I want to get my Trans Iowa V9 recon wrapped up before the end of this month. That would put me ahead of schedule to get the cue sheets proofed, and all that would remain there would be a final check in the Spring. I can easily get this out of the way, and I am confident I will. It needs to be done to allow for my peace of mind in attempting the rest of this that follows. Oh yeah.....and today is the day that Finishers can register for T.I.V9! Look for a roster update in the evening.
Second on the List: I think I am looking at another Triple D try. I went last January, and it was a learning experience, a lot of fun, and I finished the course. My wife came along and we both enjoyed our time there. So, that's definitely on my radar again.
Then after that I may try and fit in an early gravel event, but weather and Trans Iowa's course checking must be done first. Then Trans Iowa in late April will be my main focus come springtime. After that, it is full focus on the Dirty Kanza 200.
Since I'll need to squeeze in training anywhere I can for the DK 200, I think I'll really be conservative with committing to any events past the Triple D. Most everything I do as far as "non-TNI" riding will have to be getting ready for that hot Kansas event June 1st. I really want to finish it off this time. I know it all starts right now, so I'll be doing things a bit differently this winter.
