    Thanks Guys!

    Thanks for the offers of help. My head isn't in it after walking 35 miles next to a lake with not alot of water and getting borderline heatstroke. I am catching a bus from Polson Mt down to Massuola, mt.

    Sun I have never been that angry and upset I have had a bicycle stolen before but never like this and so upset because all the planing I did and.....

    Thanks guys for the support. I'll post more when I'm back in denver.
    Read my BLOG!

    Unbelievable. I can't even imagine how enraging and frustrating that must have been. So sorry.

    Edit: I just looked at that part of the route on Google Earth ... you walked the entire length of Flathead Lake? Good God.

    paypal!

    Yes there is a fund going to help David! David's friend Scott Taylor at Salvagetti Bicycles is in charge and has already ordered lots of stuff out of his own pocket. If you can spare anything, even $5, and you would like to help out an awesome guy send a donation to Dave via paypal to

    scott@salvagetti.com

    As for the theif, my wife said it best when she hoped the first downhill on Dave's fixie threw the bastard off and made him regret what he's done. For those who believe in Karma, God, or anything else we can only believe they'll get what's deserved.

    I believe Scott has already wired Dave money for bus fare etc. Thanks for getting the ball rolling Chris. I think it was spurred by your e-mail using Dave's pre GDR mail list(?)

    Done.

    I am still so disappointed this could happen. Stay strong Dave and know that there are a bunch of us rooting for you. It may seem hollow to read now but if not this year, there is next year. I think the Turtle might even agree that perhaps your journey is just extended a little.

    Either way it goes for ya, good luck and be well.

    Keep on rolling Brotha! I figured this would make a great first donation for my new biz, (BIO-LUBE featured in the upcoming editon of Dirt Rag Mag #122, page 63).

    Dave your not alone in this, when summoned the Universe always responds. Peace.

    Gdr 2007

    Hey all,
    I am considering doing the GDR this year and wanted to ask a question. What kind of lights did people use in years past? Definitely needs replacable batteries, but looking for some good suggestions.
    Might as well introduce myself. My name is Jay and I am in my last year of school at Rutgers University in New Jersey. I got the idea to do the GDR and quickly told my friend Mike that he should do it with me (so now I can't wuss out).

    Hey Jay,
    I did the GDR last year (and am trying again this upcoming year with a LOT more base miles) with Petzl Myo Lite XP and it worked extremely well. 3 different light settings with wide beam and a direct beam option on each. It also has a "boost" mode so you can quickly look for something you might have dropped with an intense beam of light. I also kept 2 Cateye lights on my handlebars. One as a blinky-blinky and another model to use as a direct light right infront of me. The Petzl is great on batteries, I haven't had to replace them since doing the GDR and I've used it on many backpacking/camping trips since then! The high price (80 bucks) is well worth it.

    On a personal note, I think you know my friend Josh who also went to Brandeis with me. He told me at one point that he had a friend at Rutgers thinking about doing the race. If you want any direct advice (or, especially on what not to do) shoot me an AIM at "sizlinseagulsoup" or facebook me.
