Accepted!! BC61 headed to Dakar Argentina - Chile - Peru 2012
It has been a tense few weeks, as I was informed notices where going out on the 15th of the July only to find an empty mail box daily. Then to read of the hopes and dreams of others, hopefully only postponed. I'm not much of a worrier and I was given an unofficial "don't worry about it you're in" but honestly I was getting a little concerned. Working behind the scenes for sometime to get a worth while program in order I have been anxiously awaiting notice and today it is official. I received the below letter in the mail today, Dakar 2012 here I come!

More to come soon!
