@ johnson357 we lost you on the second day- I still thought you were down there!

Good to hear you will be racing again this year. I smashed the piggy bank and signed up yesterday.

It's going to be great!

I had planned on using only gps to make it easy and just enjoy the race but somehow(stupid me) managed to fry my gps the night before the race. I navigated like others have mentioned by heading south, following people/dust trails, and duct taping road book pages to my tank. Not ideal but it worked until my bike quit.

My advice would be to come as well prepared as you can afford with a good attitude.

Oh and I'm selling a new patent pending roadbook holder. Only $19.95 a piece!
