Looking forward to it,

Team discovery is local to me, poor guy got stranded for several days in colorado with a sick land rover (imagine that). Hope he makes it in time.

Probably little periodic catnaps hanging on to something. It's doable in that time frame. We did something similar during an Everglades race a few years ago.

You mean the one you were hallucinating in? Or the mosquito inferno that is Everglades City?
