Hell yeah, why not, count me in. But I warn you it's really lumpy with scars.

That we are reading and hearing Neduro's Dakar unfold, has to be a first in all of motor sports. The build up; the start; Dakar tracking with all its detail; Famduro; his fan's posts... and of course, Ned's daily updates on RallyRaidio.

So much drama... So much anticipation! We joy when he's sailing, and fear when he's late. We speculate about what might be going on in between...Then the incredible relief we feel when Dakar reports him safely at the finish of his daily special.

After that we patiently await his call to RallyRaidio to learn about the dragons he faught, and how he thrilled at the chance to try. What an emotional roller coaster. Two weeks of it! Unbelievable...

I take it back... It's not just a first in motor racing. It's a first in all of sports!

I'm a really old guy who has been laying around since last Friday feeling sorry for my self while I wait on reconstructive surgery for my right shoulder. Your calls have been inspiring, particularly today's, They have greatly helped my outlook. Thanks for sharing your Dakar moment and you should know that it provided me with a Dakar moment. It brought back a moment I remember at the finish line of a particularly hard marathon race. You can't help but be overcome at those points. Thanks for sharing it with us.
