RAAM 2011

Starting to mentally prepare for RAAM solo in 2011. There never really has been a choice for me. This has been something I have been preparing to do for a long time. I am imagining a RAAM lite experience with two cars with 2-3 people running 12 hour shifts. Lots of time to determine the logistics I guess.

http://www.kaisercycling.com/racebudget.html Nice simple cost breakdown of a bare bones RAAM that I would like to follow. I wonder if 2 cars would be that risky? Having 3 seems like more of a headache to me. I was watching the 2006 RAAM documentary and saw how Jonathan Boyer was able to win with 1 vehicle from Kansas after a roll-over accident. I guess 3 cars is a good insurance policy.

Wow. So you're putting it down on paper (so to speak). Good for you. I'll block that part of June off on my calendar. I see that the RAAM folks now sell a crewing seminar around the country.

I saw that. George Thomas is one of a few people I would pay for this information. He knows it well. Let me know if you would crew man. I have tentatives from Duc and Thien. I need 3 more at least ;0
