Don't be so modest. You were on the kickstarter team that invented the stone that was later used to invent the wheel, too.

After the first 4 stages, the guys are in 2nd place, hot on the heels of 1st place.

Cumulative results - stage 4

The guys ran into a problem with tires after the fifth day and changed the full set.

The new tires drove them crazy - the expansion/contraction was inconsistent and they couldn't get the calibration correct. When you are traveling for the entire day over great distances, the the mis-calibration adds up. Dropped them right out of the thick of things. I think they finished 16th.

You know, there's a reason obsolete technology is obsolete.

Ironically, it was the NEW-manufacture tires that did them in.

They absolutely will. The whole thing is a big family party with a stunning sense of community.

How was the visit with Pete?

Epic. As usual.

About 15 different, amazing beers. Clams, hamburgers and pizza. Seattle from across Elliott bay. Cruised top down in the roadster.

Good thing we are both already married.
