Advice to New Gazelles #2 – The Details

It’s 5:30 am and I’m in the Oakland Airport.  I see a man walk past me in Friday business casual and he is mad – spewing expletives I’ll delete.  He’s pounding his Starbucks and he is looking around as if he’s thinking to himself , “I hope everyone is looking at me, I’m very important.”

In a moment of clarity and guilt, I realize that most of the people at this gate are more concerned with finding outlets for their various electronics and relieved that Starbucks is open this early.  I understand, I am one of them.  But in know that half way across the globe, my racecourse awaits me and the beautiful people of Southern Morocco will welcome us with open arms – no electrical outlets, no Starbucks (oh wait, I pack Via), no luxuries that we westerners now feel entitled to.  I can’t wait to get there.

What Is “Two Seconds?”

For those of you competitive types…this post is for you.  And me.  A few weeks ago, my race boss, Rod Hall, generously entered me into the XO 250 off-road race.  It was an amazing course, definitely the steepest, hairiest track I have ever raced on.  And boy was it beautiful!  Like Rod always says, we compete on the most beautiful race courses in the world.  I went into the race completely exhausted and overworked but I am always up for driving our awesome little blue race truck.

Dan Campbell-Lloyd

This year, we were fortunate to have Dan Campbell-Lloyd join us.  He provided the US media with amazing imagery, giving not only a glimpse inside the rally, but of the amazing landscape and culture.  He is an artist with both a still and video camera.


For those of you who don’t know Dan, I can hardly do a profile justice in a couple paragraphs.  Campbell-Lloyd grew up in a tree house in the Australian Outback, has traveled the world not only as a photographer and videographer but also as […]

How Am I Feeling?

I’m on the plane heading back to the States and people keep asking me how I’m “feeling.” Here’s how I’m feeling –

Unattractive – I have five mosquito bites on my face – from camping “sans tent” for a couple days. Fortunately, there has been a lot of rain in Morocco but that means the mosquito population was quite high and those suckers are big and noisy when buzzing in your ear. Hoping they are Malaria-free.

Skinny – I’m about two sizes smaller and for those of you who know me, that isn’t necessarily a good thing. My tight jeans are hanging on me and my torso and arms are “mini.” Not that I haven’t […]
