Here's a link to a Dakar gallery on CNN.com.
http://www.cnn.com/2013/01/13/motors...html?hpt=hp_c3
The last pic is a nice one of Pyndon from the departure.
I don't think I've seen it anywhere else in this thread.
Not sure if it can be saved and posted.

Always nice when a small enthusiast's operation like CNN picks up your image and puts it in their Dakar Rally slideshow*

Now with the right management, a few greased palms, and a lucky break or two I believe the lad could one day be rescued from the obscurity of small-timers like CNN and aspire to get some really widespread coverage


PS - Between the wheelies and the "Air Poskitt" photos, I am convinced the man has never worn out a tire in his life...like Ned and a few others they only change them when the style of knobby goes out of fashion

Wow, what a ride!

First Dakar.

A top ten finish.

A high speed biff.

A rally ending breakdown, ziptied into submission.

A full Dakar experience.

And getting to do it all as the ultimate Father and son vacation!


I just don't know how you improve on that...

Nicely done Sir. Carry on.

Jeez, between Pyndon and the Webbers (who have been known to carve new wheel bearing journals with a Barlow Knife when one failed 40 miles south of BFE) I am convinced that either a Space Shuttle or a Nuclear Submarine could be fashioned from the contents of the average garden shed and a few common household cleaning products

Just for Fun

I love listening to the radio call-ins PackMule! After hearing Lyndon say "This is Lyndon calling" a few times, and having grown up on The Clash , I had an idea. I don't have the correct fonts to do it up proper, but I threw his together just for "chirpy giggles"

That is inspired!! and would be great on the front page.

Speaking of which I have posted in pics pics pics, ask Baldy and even sent Baldy a PM about devoting a day of the front page photos as a celebration of Lyndon's achievements with no success. Does anyone here know any of the Mods that might be able to pull it off?

I sent a tweet to Lyndon just before the start and just before the last stage the message is the same

Go steady!

Edit - Just checked out who the mods are on this part of ADV !! think they might be Pyn fans!!

I made this out of icing yesterday. All will be revealed soon



And finally:
