those guys don't look too happy in the pics, they almost never smile. Adventure is supposed to be fun. unless they were so overwhelmed by the enviroment  ;)
There are no short cuts to anywhere worth going!
Performance is paramount, niceties only exist if it doesn't affect performance.

Don't rush it, it's helmet time you need, not a destination. Take it easy.

When you planning to do it, I hope to be in Dubai from Jan - April/May 2009 for some work.
