Hey Guys - Thanks for all your replies, they're most appreciated!

For the record, I am planning to do the Dakar in 2013.

I'm also planning a coffee table book on the Dos Sertoes, announcement coming soon :deal:

 BB Neil,
 Die koffie in my beker is  al koud, maar moenie warrie nie, ek gaan nou weer die ketel aansit vir nog ene.

:imaposer: I guess Im just a poser

Sorri man. The plans of mice and men. Never had money in 2012 for the 2013 Dakar.  :-\ Managed to crush my tibia just after that Christmas anyway. Finally got the balls back to race last year in the Amageza but bad prep and planning screwed that for me.

What my excuse this year? I don't have one to be honest. I know I have not done enough racing to convince my Mrs that I am Dakar ready. She thinks I will die if I do it. Truth is I would need to do another decent rally to be accepted anyway. And then there is still the plates and screws and crap I still need to have taken out of my leg.

Listen to me yammering on ::) Need to get my mojo back.

Hehe, the thought crossed my mind a couple of times, but I do not want to alienate myself from the Stormers and Sharks supporters :P

I read through this entire story last night while I was supposed to prepare for a presentation today.  Just couldn't stop!

BlueBull2007, you now have another fan and I am super stoked to get my arse in gear for next years Baja.  Belated thanks for sharing your awesome adventure.  :thumleft:

It's not what you know and it's not who you know. It's what you know about who you know.
