Flight was late getting into BA. Who knew there was two airports and they are an hour away by cab! Everyone saying no way we'd make it. They have photo radar everywhere, 20 US payoff to the crazy cabbie per radar and made it with 30 seconds to spare (didn't even get to have a smoke!!!!). Coma and team sitting in the row behind me and Ginel and team Hilux in front. Yes I cheesed it up for some photos

Robb is still somewhere near the loading docks heading to BA and estimates 3-4 am before he gets to MdP.


Looks like everything is coming along smoothly

Scrutineering begins tomorrow.

Adios amigos

Ted

Just finished dinner with Jonah, Niles, Tim and Bill. Everyone seems relaxed and raring to go

Some mix up with the Freedom teams RV that was in a different ship, it was supposed to carry Neds bike and the teams tools, tires, etc. Robb headed out for the rescue and should be back early tomorrow.

No worries

Ping Packmule?

Great coverage so far Ted, keep it coming - I hope you will be able to keep it up like this, maybe it will be easier to phone into Rallyraidio - Ping Nate, he may have it up and running again this year!

Hmm...speaking of which, where is Packmule? Not fighting fires I hope.

Robb, Ned and his GF and Chris showed up around 3:30 last night

All parts, tools and bikes are now at the house. Today's is the scrutineering for the three bikes and the truck. Ned and Chris have been out since sunrise doing the last bit of prep to his bike. nav tower and decals, etc. Tim and Bill are out finishing his wiring and a few other odds and ends. Robb, Niles and Jonah still sleeping.....not hard to tell who the noobs are..we're the ones too excited to sleep

Everyone is in good spirits, I for one am very stoked to be here
