Blog Entry sent by Justin via text for Susan to post

Much has transpired since the last BLOG post from heavenly business center at our hotel. We ended up staying another night there since the convoy caught up with us. Amazingly, Newyorkistan and their convoy showed up at the same time. Much rejoicing and pizza. Most significantly since then, the Mini has gone to the great tiny parking space in the sky. I can verify that it had a shredded wheel bearing, but I have no idea who took it or where it went. Since this event has intimately bound our fate with that of the British contingent, it might be worth giving some impression of who they are. James figures prominently as he speaks Russian, running point on our more complicated communications. Ben is James' teammate and rides with RAMROD aka team usa. Quiet and into music, relaxed and can sleep through car-sized potholes. Tim is a solid Scot with an RAF dad. Loves aircraft. Cyrus loves a good plan and is a huge film buff. Ian 'party boy' entertains with his dancing and bickers with Tom 'Tommy Gun' like they were married. They're both hard to put in writing in a text message late at night. Yvonne reads the Constant Gardener, does not drive and loves dancing. [8 messages long - sent from their own cell number]

Yee-haw - cowboys riding the range - er, desert. Sounds like a real party. Saw text message that associates had theft issue. With convoy hopefully they can share around. Hope they can get this party moving eastward - running out of time!!

We are all impressed with how far you have gotten and how well prepared you are. I am wondering who Yvonne is - is she from a team whose car broke down? We rented and watched Supertroopers and can't understand why anyone would want to go by "Rod Farva". Actually, we didn't understand much about the flick, but it did have some humerous moments. Go Ramrod!
