Of course, I can't look at this race without the budget dominating my thoughts. So, I've come up with a scheme to help raise some money that will be a win all around, I hope.
First, of course I'm selling T-shirts and stickers and the usual schwag.
In addition, some great companies have come forward to help make an even better proposition for you if you are able to send a few $$ my way. Klim
, Motonation (Sidi Boots)
, Adventure Spec (for Europeans)
, Outrider Journal
and Butler Maps
are all stepping up with awesome special offers for my supporters.
I'm also going to keep a private blog
for supporters, that details what it's like to be working on this project, the budget, what steps I'm taking to prepare- essentially, giving you a window into everything that happens around the race effort. The first couple of posts are up, more are coming soon.
