All parts, tools and bikes are now at the house. Today's is the scrutineering for the three bikes and the truck. Ned and Chris have been out since sunrise doing the last bit of prep to his bike. nav tower and decals, etc. Tim and Bill are out finishing his wiring and a few other odds and ends. Robb, Niles and Jonah still sleeping.....not hard to tell who the noobs are..we're the ones too excited to sleep

Everyone is in good spirits, I for one am very stoked to be here

Wow, Ted, we're all basking in the luxury of your updates and pictures. It's like ADVrider has it's own mole hidden in the RPA organization. Too good to be true. We know once the race starts other priorities might slow down how much information you'll able to get to us, but we're loving what we're getting already.

LONG LIVE TED!

Actually, right now we're downright spoiled also getting updates from Ned and Bill.

Good luck Ned and all!

I believe so, and insured. Heading out this afternoon to get the truck inspected, Bill is at 6:30 tonight, Jonah is tomorrow...I believe Ned is going at the same time as Bill.

Bring on the rally pron

Hope not, they do periodic checks throughout the race (or so I am told)... Might also make crossing borders interesting

With this page and the tweets from Robb, it doesn't get much better.
