    Is that a stock seat? Doesn't look very comfortable for 5000 km of slab riding...

    Yep. We are a hardy people... although technically it is Carl's Swedish arse we need to be worried about - but then they are even more hardy than us of course!

    James did actually offer to make me a seat for my [eventual] return to Dakar... hopefully I can hold him to that one day ;o)

    Great work! - thank you Beechum!

    Maybe we need to get a competition going - photos of subscribers in their shirts doing stupid stuff during Dakar or something like that?!

    I'll see if I can find a suitable prize from the box of original Jennydakar supporters gear ;o)

    Jajaj!
    Don't even worry about that...

    Top gear guys made a provocation to the people that lives in the patagonian part of Argentina.. There, there's still a very strong feeling for the Malvinas (or Falkland islands, whatever you want to call them). You are just going to race and make your dreams come true, without annoying anyone...

    Besides, you are going from the centre part of the country to the north and the border countries, don't even worry about that!

    My t-shirt arrived the other day.

    Thanks and best of luck.
