Thanks Jimmy, I look forward to seeing you out there sometime!
Next week we're prerunning another couple hundred miles. Two weeks ago we bit off a bit more than we could chew and had to cut things short. Encountered a couple of unexpected blockages that took a lot of time to get around. And ran the gas hauling buggy in a boulder wash that was bad enough on bikes, but way too nasty for the buggy. We only made half the day's planned distance before it got dark. Of course we always end up taking on too much for a day, but this time I decided to head back to the hotel rather than spend the whole night trying to find the route in the dark. This next one we're traveling slim and light, and spending two nights far from pavement!
