Suggestion: use the Support button on Misca's tracker because it's so cool and we all benefit from it.

Well, I've got the first week off work, t shirt ordered, a PC and a tablet. The only problem is that it is bed time when each stage kicks off! Ah well, right hemisphere, wrong side of the planet.

Go Grabbo no.32
Also best of luck to the other Aussies

I guess I better check in while we are still in Parc Ferme

Are there any mile markers (post counts) that will help us chart progress of this thread? (Kinda like min number of posts required per day to equal last years thread)

Here's the good stuff. This is my Google Earth file showing the exact course for Stage 1. The Google Earth imagery is pretty good in some places, and terrible in others. I have other imagery I use when the GE imagery is bad, which explains why my track is slightly "off the road" in some places.

Google Earth file - Dakar 2014 Stage 1 Course

Look here for photos along the course: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...5#post23134375
Look here for some points in the roadbook matched to the GE imagery: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...8#post23134138
