    Reviewing the bonuses for BMR. It is a bit overwhelming I can ill need to develop a system to work all this data into a plan. This is definitely going to be a learning experience.

    Well for anyone still paying attention I apologize for my lack of posting. I had lasik was off the bike for awhile and then it went in for some warranty work.

    Eyes are healed. Bike is back. And the Big Money Rally has started.

    My first impression I am waaaaay in over my head. The list of bonus location is extensive to say the least. They guys do an awesome job I can’t imagine the man hours put into just planning this let alone the real time scoring.
    This will be a learning experience for me and a lesson in logistics.

    With all that said I still have a competitive attitude and am going to give this my best shot while I muddle through it and attempt to figure out some sort of plan.

    As I post this now I am tied for 60th with 14.990 points. It will probably have changed by the time I publish post. I’ll keep you updated as much as I can on my blunders along the way.

    Thanks again for following along

    Some bitter cold weather and a bitter cold sickness have stalled by progress, I am currently ranked 63rd with 28.823 points. I have been secretly telling myself I will be happy with a top 40 finish but its time for me to say it out loud.

    I have dropped to 68th place with 45.798 points. I have a four day trip planned next weekend to hit a bunch of the bonus spots hopefully that will buy some places in the ranking.

    Still not a competitor in the big money rally but. A great learning experience. I will definitely keep pushing and hopefully it’ll make me better for next year.

    The tour of honor started today but I haven’t had a chance to grab any of the bonus points yet hopefully by Wednesday I’ll have at least one. This looks like a more manageable rally but should still be a lot of fun and for a great cause.

    Some pics from the Big Money Rally to follow.
