“Are You Insane???”

A coworker wrote this to me earlier today:

“Are you insane??? :) Just last week my wife and I were talking about hot places and we were looking up crazy things people do in Death Valley. I hope by donating I can tell people I participated in this without leaving my air conditioning.”

Friends, I think I might actually be a little nutty. When I signed up for it last winter, I didn’t know it was going to be quite so warm—120+F—on the route in mid-October. I’ve been learning some valuable lessons about hydration over the last week (which I will discuss at another time) which I will undoubtedly apply during my hot, dry, and (hopefully) awesome ride.

Fortunately, I have some very generous friends, coworkers, and family members. They have already donated over $4,000 for my ride. Every bit helps! Why not throw in a few bucks?

  1. Jeff, it’s not insanity, it is kicking-ass on a whole different level. :-)

    You rock, brother!
