They come in handy as a sleeping mat or to go for a swin on one of the swamp lakes.

How long is this CFITT thing?  I thought it was within 120-150 miles.  Are you all really going to be camping and doing it as an overnight thing?

The estimated miles are between 150 and 180. We will know in 2 weeks the exact miles. You have from 6 am Saturday till 2 PM sunday to complete the route.... if you make it an overnighter - that is up to you. I'm planning on being done in less than that time and not sleeping... that's just me though.

i think adding a first aid kit, emergency blanket and water filter to the items you carried on the Big-O will probably let you squeak by.... check NI's blog... was there a mandatory gear list? i don't remember....

I don't know them very well. Only ridden through there once. but i do read maps and have a mapping GPS. Plus over the next two weeks I will ride the entire route with NI.

I am putting aerobars on - not packing anything and drinking R2s sweat - no need for water

i've heard that sweat from a sailors balls will cure cramps - and cancer -- even better than 29er wheels!
