Now back to the race

Let's stop with donations until we have a plan to get Manuel dinero by some other route. If I see anything else come in, I'll ask here what to do, I can refund, or if we have a plan for how to make it available to Manuel, we can do that.

Now to catch up on the firehose...
Here's a thought from the middle of the Pacific, what if somebody could drag one of Manny's used, used Mousse back from SA and cut it up into bits and mail a piece to those that helped out??? I'd take one and nail it up next to the piece of Riff Raff road book that Jonah and Casey signed a while back.

Just sayin...

Go Manuel, Go Pyndon!!!

Ha Ha - mail - you should see the cost to get Ted's book to the Middle East - I'll scan/photograph a copy of the envelope this week and give you all a laugh - it takes the world record for the number of stamps on one envelope

Day 4 has three huge ergs on the menu; the 1st is the day of Cerro Marcha, the bikers will have to come straight down this.

Not too bad, its only 1,000m high....



The cars and trucks have to go down further to the left on a route that is 1km longer and half as steep - which is still pretty freaking steep.

Still working on the route, but in between the ergs it looks like old rocky, winding mining tracks that eventually drop down to a lovely green valley in the desert.




The 2nd erg is not as steep but its a climb that will test the spirits of but the best dune riders.

The 3rd erg is the hardest, with a another huge descent into a gulley from hell, similar to the one at Fiambala. The special stage ends after they can make it out of the gulley.

Then they have a nice winding coastal route to relax on for about 200km before another series of long, hot, boring strights to the bivouac.

This day I think will be the toughest Peru has to offer.

So after the three easy warm up days I think there are a few out there who will be looking forward to this then - what a start!!!

Sometimes i feel that elements of the Dakar are evolving into an "Erzberg Rodeo" rather than solely focussed on being the long/endurance event of the past.

Yes but in this case, who wouldn't want to ride and ride down a monster dune like this?? It begs to be ridden.

I finally caught up (well before the day's special started) and i'm tired after juggling work, an understanding but still sad wife, the live streaming TV channels and finally the wrap up of the day and you say you are going to have something up for stage 4 ?? You're crazy.

I like this idea. Someone post it up on Manuel's FB but, we'll have to see if he has money - i'm kidding, for the postage.

Evening!

I was thinking, in my American Centric Self kind of way, to toss one in Robby Gordan's luggage and he'd bring it back to a F5er in the US to mail out (the guvment subsidizes our mail), I mean, he hauled parts for JC didn't he?!?!?
