    The main problem has been that 2 trips to ON have fallen through for me this year and dresda and Emmbeedee had to bail on the Soiree too- I think dresda put it in the mail for me:D

    Early October we intend to have it available for purchase. Then in November Tales From The Bivouac - Volume 2 will be available. This installment in the TFTB series is a collection of stories (aka tales) from various folks who have participated in rally races in 2012 (Serres in Greece, Mex1k in Mexico, Abu Dhabu in the UAE) as well as a special on Dakar privateers with interviews from some folks racing the Dakar in January.


    Volume 3? We'll see what happens :1drink

    Africa Race is looking promising with over 200 competitors signed up for this year.:clap
    You could nail the 'It was better in Africa' debate for us!:wink:

    No problem. I have been kicking myself the last few months for not pre-ordering the first book. I really wanted that CD full of pictures. BTW, which book is coming before the end of the month, #1 (general release) or #2? I need both. :wave
