But now you know how close that great Colorado riding really is........
The exact reason I bought a box truck truck 3 years ago.
Thank you my sweet! The bike is amazing & so are you.
It’s cold, I’m bored, humor me......
I’m only 2 rides away from ME Bronze status. I need a BBG and at least an SS to earn it. So I’ve been mulling an idea that involves some nesting. I’m wondering if this is legit.
Day 1 JAX-Van Horn 23h
Sleep 8-10hrs (I know thats too much, it’s just for planing)
Day 2 Van Hron-SDO-Yuma. 20 hrs
That would earn my needed BBG and SS as individual rides. But it could also earn me a nested 50cc.
Does this seem reasonable and within the rules?
I nested *only* a BBG into my 50CC. That was acceptable.
You *still* have to come home from SDO. Why not RON there (in SDO), then get up and bust out a SS (or a BBSilver) toward home?
The 50CC is the 'orphaned' ride, but that'll get ya three certificates, two of which counts toward the ME Silver.
Sadly I won’t get silver without 2 additional rides. I’m claiming 2018 and 2019 rides toward my Bronze.
Couple reasons to not RON in SDO, it’s only a tank away to Yuma, and completing the SS / ME level. Yuma is the start of the CABDR which I’d like to do. Then I have a few warm tourist stops on the way back east. Marfa, Lukenback, S. Padre, etc
I could be mistaken ... but I believe nested rides (even accepted ones) don't count towards Mile Eater status? Meaning the miles may allow more than one document, but will only count once to a Mile Eater award.
I missed a Silver by one measly SS 2 years ago when I bailed on a TOH ride cuz I wasn't feeling it. That was the only one I ever considered but I am just a few regular SSs away form Gold so I may put in for that this year, maybe in Jax.
Thats my understanding also. I’m clarifying that the BBG & SS would count while still allowing the 50cc just because.
Might be a question for Ira on the forum.

"you can use only one of a nested rides as a qualifying ride"
A nested certificate means two certificates were received for doing ONE ride.
It's sad to see that a nested ride would be excepted for a Silver Mile Eater. If it is, it should be noted on the certificate.
Agreed on that one. Counting miles twice is poor form.
Not sure how I confused y’all.
I’m aware that traditional nesting is prohibited for ME awards. I’m not asking about that.
I’m askimg if its cool to pick up other certs while underway.
Well Dang I am always cornfuzed.
Just a PSA. The 2021 IBA Calendar is on sale with a 30% off coupon on Lulu.com (30% ends tonight) I hope I'm not violating any rules on this thread ,just wanted to pass it along

Ours is in, too. Planned on Gettysburg for vacation last year, before everything was cancelled. Happy is it happening this year.
I shut it down as things got worse, didn’t even finish this year.
