Awww... I remember when you first posted this pic of us in Cambodia - my parents saw it while I was gone and felt so much better that there was at least proof I was alive! They must have checked RFF three times a day....
Serendipity, thanks for the nice words, and for cheering for us! I also wished there was more driving because, yes, we did really well at that. NZ was one of our favorite legs because everything went so smoothly for us... I couldn't believe how many of the other legs just came down to lucky taxi drivers -ARGH! (although that's not even what did us in...)
...and Pedaler, YES I read the other boards. AAAAHHH I couldn't believe the "sarah hotter with or without glasses" thread! At first I thought it might be good feedback.. like, hmmm what does everyone think? Should I wear my glasses, not wear them? But then I saw such mean stuff - "she's fugly either way" - and that was not exactly constructive feedback. Still I can't stop looking... luckily that thread seems to have died out the last few days
DerekCL, I'm glad to say hi to folks in Chile - especially since I lived there a bit! Send me a private message with where I should send the note to.
Thanks everybody! I really really appreciate the support. I can only imagine what'd happen if I posted on sucks.... some of them hate me!!!
