You may be riding alone but you are not really alone Deb, So many people are pulling for you and rooting you on. There are lots of ADVers and others rabidly following you RR. I have great admiration for you and your audacious plan. And from getting to know you a bit from the time you spent here in Banamichi I have no doubt in your ability to succeed. So when you are in the 4h or 6th hour of riding sola, know that we are along for the ride.
