So Relieved!!

Ned's mom checking in . . . I've been on pins and needles, like everyone else. Fingers, toes,eyes, and other miscellaneous extraneous parts crossed for the rest of the pre-start details to fall into place. VERY excited, glued to the computer . . . xoxo mom

And I thought us getting the truck into the container was nerve wracking! Waiting on the container to show up was even worse. Such a relief when Scott said it arrived and released!! Good luck to you all! See you at the finish!

Gwenduro, jenduro: you can tell li'l Eleanor that uncle Ned has 180,000 ADVriders watching over him.
He won't be riding alone, not even a second.

Thanks so much for the link to the video.
Will you keep posting the links for us?

I've told my boss I'm not going to be very productive for the next two weeks...

What time zone is it down there and how many do you go through across SA?

Q I hear ya. My wife knows she will be a Dakar F5 Widow for 2 weeks and my coworkers know from past years that I'm rather distracted at work during those weeks. Good thing it's at the start of the year when things are slower biz-wise.

As for videos, they are being collected here:
