    Jeff, if you get a chance, chat with Curtis about the Nevada BDR. He was instrumental in its development and if you get the DVD you will see him prominently featured throughout. +1 on him being a great guy.

    a few pages back, i asked peeps with VOUCHERS who don't need them to pass them along.

    ONLY if you are a rally participant, supporter or contributor can ask for them.

    :-)Wow what a fun event. I didn't take too many pictures on this trip and have been slammed with work since I got back so I really have enjoyed viewing the ones posted up...

    I really wanted to thank the sponsors of this event- especially the vendors of the two raffle prizes I won. The SureFire Tactical light and the Green Chile Adventure Gear straps. I think @Drunkmonkey was the Surefire Vendor and got the chance to ride with him on Thursdays ride to Darwin - super nice guy.

    :thumbup Best of all .......The timing of winning these prizes was perfect........:nod

    :wings Leaving Saturday for 3-weeks riding down-under and these 2 raffle prizes are in the gear bag. I also plan on showing my appreciation to both sponsors by taking some pictures of them in use.

    Thanks again to @NSFW and all of the awesome volunteers who make this such a fun event. :beer
