If Anna doesn't go, I'd be willing to Iron Butt the whole way.
If she goes we should plan on leaving a day early and stopping somewhere along the way.
You said you reserved 8/04 - 8/10. Does that mean you leave on 8/10 or 8/11?
Leaving on the 10th, but I'm okay with any dates.
I Iron Butted that distance from NM in October, but I stopped 3 times and slept on the ground for about an hour each time. When I saw a black Vietnamese pot-bellied pig in the road up ahead, and then discovered it was a black car way, way up ahead, I knew it was time to close my eyes for a while.
Probably mainly because I didn't hit the road till about 4:00 pm. Starting fresh in the morning is a little different. So whatever you want to do. How will you carry your gear? We could camp along the way one night.
You can pick up a 1-man tent pretty inexpensively. Then Anna can share my tent with me. After all, what are good friends for? I just like to help when I can.
