Thank you everyone. The feedback is encouraging and makes me want to stay committed to sharing our story.
We should have a bike in a day or two and more info on all the planning, logistics, and details that are going into preparing for something of this magnitude. I personally know of several on this thread that have commented that have conquered Baja and other "bucket list" type races, and I know they can appreciate all that goes into such an undertaking.
