    I agree 150% (which is why I started the thread way back when). Okay -- after the Dakar coverage is done, I'll fire this baby back up. I can think of two dozen right off the top of my head (who can't?).


    In the meantime, everyone check out http://RallyRAIDio.net to hear epic stories told by average Joes as they experience them, Live on the Dakar. :wings

    (We need a Dakar smilie, BTW...)

    Does anyone actually read what a thread is about before dumping their pics in it?

    + 1 on a HoF or likeness that thereof.

    There are some incredibly talented and enlightening RR's out there, but many are buried under weeks, months or years of other RR's. (Not to say those are any less entertaining.)

    Epic adventures
    Not so well traveled destinations
    Life altering experiences
    Mind changing exposure to other cultures

    They are all here.

    And deserve a place on the mantle

    Its extraordinary how such a cracking idea for a thread has somehow become the dumping ground for all the weirdest shit.:huh
    Give credit where credit is due though - if you are gonna post weird shit, what better statement to make than post it in the wrong thread:lol3

    In any case, you must obviously add
    Angola, it's not like they said.

    And in the category for best faceplant

    Absolutely! IIRC, Bugfnnuts was missing a day or two from his Regular Guy Does Dakar report. I'll have to take it under advisement whether that's enough to get him an Epic, or Blue Balls entry on that one...

    BTW, PM, this thread is a great idea.

    Do you have Rogue1's original thread, "Took a little ride"? It's way on top of the list for me...

    It's not in there yet. Got a link for me?




    There are quite a few updates on page 1 now. Anything with Fresh Meat has been added in the last 24 hrs. :thumb


    I've asked GB/Lobby to prune out the bizzaro pics so we can get this thread back on track. :deal
