|The T.I.M.P. route map. It's vague, and it's the best yer gonna get now.|
First off, and this goes for all past Trans Iowa routes, and many GTDRI routes, I don't like just handing over a route I busted my butt to ferret out for nothing. I also am not at all interested in selling my route information. If you were fortunate enough to have finished a Trans Iowa, and you managed to keep your cue sheets, you earned the right to that route in my opinion. Anyone else? Not so much. Otherwise I feel that "if I can do it, you can too" and I'll point you in the right direction to get the resource materials to get you started. You can learn all about how to do routes as well as I did. Having routes "just handed to you" doesn't seem right to me. Especially long, difficult ones.That's just how I feel about that, and I always have.
Then there is the reason I have concerning risk to me. I don't feel I should hand out a route like the T.I.M.P. and certainly not when it may come back to bite me in various forms in the future. I can think of several reasons there alone why it isn't wise to put out a route for just anyone to ride. So, that vague red line on that map of Iowa is all you are going to get from me concerning the T.I.M.P. route.
Yeah, so I thought I would just put that out there to squelch any future requests for routes like the T.I.M.P. and old Trans Iowa routes. I will not be sharing those ever. I think that is pretty easy to understand.This is also why I haven't been too eager to pursue my idea for my "post-Trans Iowa" projects. For one thing, it is a time and energy consuming endeavor. The other thing is, I could be held responsible for "certain things", and I don't need that kind of hassle.
