Hi Jenny, just followed your link from the Tenere thread.... total respect to you for having a go at the Dakar.... best of luck to ya.
Shame about your foot hope it heals quick.
I did the Tunisie in 1996 & considered the Heroes Legends this year, had a long chat with Clive earlier in the year about it, but I had an operation on my shoulder in April which is just about back to normal now so probably best I didnt.... the fact I've put about 2 stone on since April wouldn't of helped either
I'm a bit long in the tooth for this rally stuff now anyways (53).
Dunno where you are in the UK, but if you need any help with transport or whatever give me a shout... be happy to help & let me / us know when you've sorted out the donations, support, t.shirts, whatever...I'll be happy to drop a couple hundred quid in the kitty. I spent several thousands in '96 so it must be costing ya a bleedin fortune to do this one.
Best wishes & heal fast
