Didn't have enough money to enter at the time, let alone get a room. The wife and I got off work at 8pm Friday, drove through the night to Cheraw, volunteered all day Saturday (including the corner where we met BC61 doing PT to stay warm), broke bread with some Dakar legends and you FF's, listened to stories of victories/bare-eyed racing in the dark/swapping trannies in the motel parking lot at 1 am/sneaking motorcycles, in pieces, out of countries, Jason and his wild air-cooled beast, etc. We slept in the car in a campsite parking lot (it was so cold that year) until first light Sunday then took off for home.
We had such a blast we wore the T-Shirts everywhere, and I met seaside at the meteor/hammer?? Enduro and talked him into checking it out. He raced it three months later on his R1200GS and I think he shocked most folks with his time!
Now that I have some time and cash I'm in too!
