What not to do? What do I mean? Well … When you are preparing to help provide 24/7 ride support for Ray using a minimum crew size, you need everyone to be in top form.

So, please don’t PULL A CALF MUSCLE getting out of the RV the morning of the ride!!! Who would do such a thing? Well … I don’t want to point fingers or anything (staring at Pete). But failure is not an option, so we have good ole gimpy now, and while he’s unable to walk, he’s pulling long stretches driving and navigating.

I guess if there is any one thing you have to remind yourself about on RAAM, it’s that you ARE going to go 3000 miles one way or the other. So, deal with the hand you are dealt.
