I am 99% in, pending one minor issue that has to clear up before I can send the $$.
My reasoning for going:
1) Scott has proven himself the master of great routes over many years. This is not a thrown together event with a lot of promotion but less follow through. It is carefully constructed and will have all the elements we could hope for to have a truly awesome event, including terrain, safety, organization, routes, etc.
2) The other folks involved- who has ever had more fun than spending time with the folks putting it on and going?
3) The location looks amazing. Not so remote we can't get there, but basically brand new to all of us. And jeebus, have you looked at the terrain?
4) I really like riding rallies. How could I miss this one?
