[The posture of many of the riders showed the deep fatigue. I would not be there for the final closing and it was not necessary. I learned so much from the riders who came by, barely able to lift a gloved hand off of the left handlebar to acknowledge the adulation of the enthusiastic throng. These riders had left enthusiasm somewhere out on the vast Atacama that I have just traversed and were just tired to the bone.]

David, I want to hear more about the Dakar when we get together. Last year, Ned Suesse, a Colorado rider that participated and then gave a presentation at Wolfman Luggage in Longmont (among other places), spoke of the great expense for even observers. I would love to see the activity at the end of a stage, if it was affordable. Jim
