Ted, this has been a fantastic endevour. You have done an amazing job and I'm sure the book will be nothing but exceptional. When the book is ready let me know as we wwould love to get it in the shop to help with the sales. A book signing at the shop would be great to do as well.

Let me know if you are interested.

Cheers, Jody

So much enjoyed this thread and the info about the other teams/ riders too. I am looking forward to this book and looking forward to the next big challenge for Jonah. I hope Ned comes back and has a "tell" thread of some kind. Maybe it's already started? I'll check.

Thank you!

Now there's an idea "Tales for the Bivoac - The Movie". Who would play Ted? I am thinking Ricky Gervaias has about the right look. Just need to replace his English accent with a Canadian one

Robby Gordon would be played by Tom Cruise (both have similar personalities so not much of a stretch).

Jason Stratham could play Ned.

All for now, thanks for following along

We're junkies for the inside scoop. But of course, you already knew that.

There's a rumor that Apple is going to release a tool that will make authoring for iPad easy soon. Don't know if it includes other electronic medium or not.

If you have a PDF, it will go into the iPad real nice and fast. Trick is to have it formatted correctly so the text reads nice a any zoom. (I can help you with that if it comes up Ted.)

I get Drit Rider and Bike Magazine as a digital subscription thru Zinio. They do it right. Text is readable even zoomed in. Images look great.

Yeah. I believe that and it would be a whole lot easier.

What I've always been curious about is why PDF wasn't the "standard" for e-readers. From what little I know, if you wrote a book and it's formatted it for say a Kindle, it wouldn't necessarily work on an iPad or Knook. Just seems like PDF/HTML5 would have been easier than deciding on a new format.
