Thumbs up Time for more coffee...

I'd like to thank Randy for a sleepless night. I was up all night thinking about how much fun this will be...

So. Is it too early to start talking smack and placing side bets???

Talking Smack?

Alex says "you are all..............."
Oh wait a minute, it may NOT be time to start talking smack!

Very much looking forward to the adventure.

We're on.......

I've never really posted here but have been "looking" for a long time. My partner an I are definitely on for this challenge, and have been talking with Steve of Competitours in preparation for this fun, exciting, inspiring, intoxicating proposition. And now, with Randy "helping out" the next two members willing to enter on their own, we anxiously await to hear if I am one of the ones (with my partner in crime and in life in tow, of course). So, is it a deal? huh, huh?

Great Job, Randy!! Your generosity continues to astound me.

Best of luck to all the teams - from Flyertalk and elsewhere. I look forward to spending too much time watching videos of your adventures.

Best wishes to Beaubo on his new venture, as well.

Congrats to the winning teams.

I'm counting on team GeoChex to bring it home for the Washingtons!

Team Missy and Opus are still holding out hope to be the chosen ones in round 2.
