    I've been writing in my basement for six straight weeks, the end is in sight (well it's still five weeks away but it's now in sight)

    Just finished editing some of Tobias Youngers stage recaps....damn :deal

    Thanks again for all the interest

    If I miss out on the DVD I'm going to be seriously disappointed.

    I assume the numbers are all sales ever from graveltravel so I suspect it is somewhat less than 193 book sales so far. But still looks very encouraging. Hopefully we can help offset a major portion of Ted's significant expense in doing the trip.

    Holy crap, havent slept in two days (feels like I am back at the race). My website "store" was acting up and I have been trying to sort it out....I apologize. The timing couldnt have been worse.

    Thanks for all of the orders, I know some folks (about 7) couldnt get paypal to open. Orders were placed but no payment was made. I WILL be in touch in the next day or two with these folks to see if you still want to order :thumb

    The website would just hang for some folks during "stage two" of the checkout process. It seems to be dependant on which web browser you were using as far as I could tell, I am not a web site guru but flash, ie version, proxy, or something like that caused issues for some people.

    So....I removed the book from the store.

    I added a link at THIS page on the GravelTravel.ca web site that brings you to a much better checkout process.

    If you sent paypal funds, I received every order :thumb

    If you tried to order the book and didnt get to the paypal page, I recieved your order and will be in touch in regards to payment :thumb

    A huge apology for all of the hassle :nod

    Hello Ted--I bought your HPN tank before the rally and now have bought the book. Order #145. Good luck with the project.
