This isn't the camping you remember from 1977 in that 6'X6' canvas Woods tent that never dried out, allowed for NO wind to blow through and stank like Hell...

Alright, folks - let's have the reports!

Anybody freeze their "bits"? Was there a media presence? Photos for posting?

Lamentably, I am bed-ridden and drinking lots of tea and soup in an effort to be healthy again come Monday. (I kind of doubt that's gonna happen, though...)

A former director of the race, ... , says he's sure we can make arrangements with someone on the island to use a piece of their property. He lives on the island and will start making inquiries. So don't worry, we'll get it sorted out, hopefully by the end of January. Excellent, Jim. I'd actually pr...
