    A few weeks ago I wrecked while pre running the Baja 500. It only took me about 32 hours to get to the UC San Diego hospital. Tim's story kept me motivated. I just read it again. Bravo!

    Thanks to whomever bumped this...I just read through all 33 pages

    I'm in for the book

    I have to admit I was disappointed to see that it was from 2007 when I saw the post on donations. I clicked the website, saw that it was down *then* i checked the year. If it comes around again, I'm in.

    Thanks for the great read

    You're welcome.

    I don't know what happened to Tim but I hope he has a good life.

    2008 was the year Dakar was cancelled due to terrorist threats - the end (to many people) of the 'real' Dakar :cry:cry:cry:cry:cry:cry

    I'm a little late to to find this and what a wild ride! Is there a link to his ride report somewhere?

    Thanx

    ^^^ I found it by clicking Tim's name, then "all posts started by this user" or something like that.

    Regular guy does Dakar
