- Troubles; Again !
Just as things are going nice and the amazing sceneries are making the run a feast for the senses to experience - the supportcar once again makes trouble: Overheating violently and sending boiling water out over the engineblock etc.
If you have a look at the picture slideshow from todays stage you will at the end see a location where one doesnt want to be stuck w. a supportcar that might not be able to start tomorrow ! And that, is ofcourse where we are now and will be setting our tents for the night: at a remote desert-mountain range where we had driven up after my running in order to better appreciate the magnificent desert views. What we now have is an amazing night with worries of the day ahead of us... ;-) Life cant be perfect - but it ceartainly can be full of action, even in the middle of yet another desert ! :-)
