nice little blurb on the Dakar website about two inmates. Here's their ride-report:

Alaska to Argentina - N69S54A


He gives us the strength to keep on going!







As they stroll around the Copiapó bivouac in awe, they really regret having left their motorcycles back at the hotel. "We could have compared our machines with those of the pilots," smiles Henriette Thiim "since ours are in an only slightly better condition!" It must be said that this Dane, who has been practicing enduro for 20 years, and her partner Lars Hoejberg have undertaken quite a remarkable adventure: a cross-country trip across the Americas, from Alaska to Ushuaia. And, on this long trip, there was something they could not miss: the Dakar rest day. "We had to up our pace to get here in time, but we absolutely wanted to come and say hello to Jens Munk, the only Danish rider in the field. We belong to the same motorcycle club back in Denmark, and every time we cross a difficult area, such as three days ago in the Bolivian mud, we think of what he is going through in this Dakar and that gives us the strength to keep on going."

From Deadly99

"Best bivouac yet, right on the Pacific ocean, nice breeze, cooler full of cervezas and nice and big and not too crowded. The team is having a good laugh watching the video footage of Cyril in the mud :) "

Maybe an odd or dumb question, but on reading this thread and seeing the photos and hearing the stories of changing this, fixing that, replacing etc, it came to mind:
What do you do with all the spent oil, carcasses, beer cans,etc.?

Do you have to pack that crap up every night too ? Or does the ASO supply cleanup and waste removal via local contractors?

Just curious.

And again, like all the others have said, a grateful thank you to the team.

You leave the garbage, oil, etc for ASO to pick up


Camping with Desert Rose again, we're all waiting for Toby to come in, he was past cp3 last time we looked


Had dinner with Ned and left in the dining tent doing his roadbook.

Bike is washed, no speedo today as its a bit chilly outside

Tim is addressing the daily bike issues and routine maintenance chores.
