I'm out this year for Sandblast but will keep it on the schedule for 2014.
Can't complain though as my race bike is on its way to Tunisia and the Tuareg Rally in March.
I'll report back with a detailed comparison between the sands of North Africa and that of the Carolina Sandhills.
Seriously, although I'm excited about the opportunity to participate in a rally abroad, I'll miss the camaraderie and fun that is the Sandblast Rally (especially the "Rat" pack). For those on the fence, I urge you to jump in and enjoy the experience. You won't regret it.
I look forward to seeing everyone again soon at another Rally Moto event!
