But now back to our regular scheduled program where our man Scott is now rubbing his head wondering how much crap he's gonna hear from the non-believers tomorrow.

So, I know this thread isn't about politics and all, but is anybody else writing Neduro in on their 2012 presidential election ballot this year?

What a Day!

What a banner day it has been for NED and all of us NEDHEADS!

OUTSTANDING!

From finishing another stage and having it in the books, to riding the extreme terrain, to Ned's "Dakar Moment", to cartwheelin' down the hill, to the open and heartfelt Rally RAIDio call in,................................ just when I thought it couldn't get much better than it's been for the last week and a half...................and we get today. Holy Cow!

Thanks Ned! Atta Boy! Making us proud.

I'm sure that Ned would approve of you posting it... I imagine that he's got a similar story in his head, and hopefully, after he reaches the finish line and eventually gets back to the states... we can hear his story too.

thanks for putting to words what most of us have thought / felt at one point or another.

Hey, I saw this pic on the Cliff Notes thread and it sure sounds like the hill the Ned rode/rolled down today. Note that these guys are walking their bikes.

Look how far these guys are leaning back with the bikes. That picture does not do justice for how steep that hill is....yikes.

Go Ned

It’s a pleasure sharing in this adventure. My wife and I have been listening to your Rally Raidio updates each evening (Thanks PackMule). Tremendous fun.

Adding my support because you have come so far and we all want to see you complete this dream. Hold on to your superb attitude. Thanks for taking us along.

Now, if we could have given you a spot tracker or something so the anxiety between checkpoints wouldn’t be so bad. How many F5 keys have been broken so far? Maybe next year there can be an ADV video stream. Gopro + satellite phone uplink?

Hopefully there will be a Dakar party / presentation when you get home.

Go Ned.

.... and I forgot

... to say that I'm bald and shave my head. So I'm part of that contingent too! It's not coincidence that most of the smilies on here are bald
