As we ride around the country, it's fun to see cities with names just like ours.  Johnsonville, Tennessee; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Masterson, Texas; Donaldson, Georgia.

Your goal is to visit cities that will spell your name in order.

"But there are no cities that have my unique name" you say.  Then stop complaining just work it out.


Name - Howard Entman

Route:  St, Augustine, FL to Howard, Georgia to Sargent, Georgia to Vardaman, MS. to wherever else to get your mileage.

Admittedly, there will be some riders whose names just don't lend them to successfully completing this challenge; for instance

Stefanovich Papandropli
Luigi Cabbrizzo

Nikita Khrushchev

If you have a complex name like this, we apologize for presenting an impossible challenge.

A special certificate will be issued for this ride.  Here is the graphic we used for Art Garvin's Selfie-1000

Read the rules for the iconic SaddleSore 1000 on the Iron Butt Association site.  The rules for this ride are similar and you will get valuable background information.

DBR - Dated Business Receipt

A DBR is a machine generated receipt with the date, time and LOCATION on it.  Check it - do not assume it is correct.  A receipt with an incorrect time/date/location is worthless.  Check and re-check.
