Because of a little discussion regarding mileage accomplished in a year, I thought that I would introduce this notion: Last year at the rally in Sedalia I posed a question to the Long Distance award people. This question was regarding distance traveled to the rally. Well, it was interesting to note that it was determined by the "As The Crow Flies" philosophy. As the crow flies? My bike does not fly and it has no pontoons to navigate waterways but, unlike the IBA, the MOA still seems to cling to this bird notion for the long distance (to the rally) award. If I am incorrect in thinking this then please correct me. However, if I am correct, please explain the logic. - Bob
