The "Iron Bottom" was started in 1988 by "No Frills" Ed and the "Old Gear Heads" and lives on as the No Frills Bottom Buster Motor Tour. Ed disbanded the No Frills Iron Bottom Motoring Tour (NFIBMT) in 2008. The first drive of the Bottom Buster was the following year, 2009. Ed road with us in 2012 and was happy that the spirit of the Iron bottom lived on and gave his approval to use the phrase "No Frills".

NO FRILLS MEANS:

All the tours including 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 were great motor tours. 2017 will be another great year.

This will be a fun event

It is a Motor Tour and not a race or road rally. Everyone is expected to drive safely and sanely. The route is straight forward. All mileage is estimated. If instructions say turn right when you should turn left is an honest mistake and not an attempt to get you lost. Bring maps, GPS, and use common sense. Carry a cell phone. If you break down, you are on your own. Other participants may stop to help because they are good people, but you are ultimately responsible for your own vehicle.
