Just said goodbye to Ned on his way to the airport.

See you in a few days bro. Have a safe and uneventful flight.

The wine showed up the other day. I had not been paying attention so it was a surprise.

But couldn't remember why it was there.

Old man, long hours, who knows where I'd drifted off on the internet?



Then the sticker package showed up in the snail mail and the mystery was solved.

Thanks Layer Cake for supporting Ned!

I'll be looking up this label in my favorite stores for sure. Yes we have already sampled a couple bottles, so I'll be re-stocking the supply for the Dakar coverage.

And Go Ned!

+1 Good luck Ned

A Little Layer Cake Xmas Cheer



New favorite wine around the house. Merry Christmas to all of Ned's supporters. We'll definitely be having a glass at the Dakar party.

And Ned hit's his first snag.. container delayed in Brazil, will arrive late in Argentina.. But should still be there in plenty of time.. Ned's relaxing pre-race vacation in Buenos Aires just became a bit more stressful.

P.S. I don't think we've ever done a Dakar where the shipping went smoothly. This is just the way it goes when shipping overseas.. As long as there are no further delays, we'll all be ok...

"What could possibly go wrong"

I hope it gets their with time to spare, I know Ned had some last minute details to sort on the bike due to last minute info from ASO on the nav gear along with applying decals on the bike, etc.

Fingers crossed

Good God, don't tell him- let him relax until the day the container is due, then tell him.

Thanks for the wine Ned. Took me a while to figure it out since the card and stickers came separately.

I just talked to Chris (with Ned in the background) and they both are surprisingly calm about the bike being delayed. Chris said they made a list today of what needs to be done and they are confident they will still have plenty of time.
