Really looking forward to reading/watching the progress and details you can provide!

Do you ever wake up and suddenly remember what you're working towards? Sharing the journey with everyone is probably therapeutic too, knowing your not alone in such an amazing endeavor.

That's exactly right.

In 2007 for the Double Barrel Baja 1000, I remember being stuck in terrible silt, couldn't see the front fender, middle of the night, and I'd already ridden 400+ race miles. I felt this surge of strength from all the people that were a part of us being down there. I knew at that very moment that there were people thinking of us and wishing us luck, and it really helped.

I'm sure I'll need (and get) that same feeling in Dakar... the financial realities of the race dictate doing fundraising, but to me, that's an extension of community, not the starting point.

Ned, from where i'm sitting its clear that when you decide to do something you do it right. When I first joined up here I was amazed that I was on the same board as someone who lives here and had raced Pikes Peak. I think I asked if you would do it again and IIRC you said something about the high entry fees. That was a while back.

Go have some AWESOME!!!
