Appreciate the offer! Never know what will emerge, so I might just take you up on that!

It seems wrong to me, too. Dakar belongs with Santa Claus, not air conditioners...

I've gotta get on pre-race accommodation. The race leaves from Mar del Plata this year, a few hours South of BA, but the time is now to make a plan!

We're going to have crossed wires, then, because I'm going to get one of your Buffs... really hope we meet again, this time in South America!

Thanks, I need it. Every time I sit down, a flood of things that I need to get done comes washing through my brain. I make lists and they quickly spawn sub lists that spawn sub lists... hard to keep it all straight.

On the training front, though, I'm headed to Idaho tomorrow with Hillslamer for a long weekend of [S]riding[/S] training. Can't wait, will bring the camera and share pictures of the decidedly non-rally (singletrack) terrain we're headed for. I'm going to see the Klim guys up there as well, so it should be a productive weekend.

Absolutely fantastic! Looking forward to seeing your progress and supporting your effort. Double barrel was a great ride for us spectators. Dakar will be even better. Good luck! Good riding! Have a blast!

Hey, I know that guy - it was his clinic that gave me the confidence to ride my first hare scramble a few yeas back. Thanks, Ned! And best of luck pursuing your dream - I will definitely be following and supporting.

2008 Coal Creek Off-Road Clinic:

And if you're wondering what Ned was saying at this very moment, I remember it clearly. It was: "Is it fucking snowing? Really? Seriously?"

Ned Sled!

Hi Ned, great to see you in for Dakar '12.
Is there a build thread for the 'Ned Sled', shame you couldn't have used a 530!
"What could possibly go wrong"
CBVRacing. "The race (Dakar) is what it is, it is being offered to racers, if they chose to sign up they should know that there are only 5 outcomes at the end of the two weeks: Finish, Mechanical, Abandon, Injuries, Death."
