It looks like RAAM isn't going to happen in 2011, and it may never happen because the logistical demands of RAAM and putting together the requisite crew is a nightmare.
After I started my "lets do RAAM" dance in January, I was told that you need to start planning for RAAM at least 12 months before the race start to have everyone and everything ready for the race. I now believe this person was right. I wish RAAM was run like it was back in 80's, when you could get by with smaller crews and you didn't need to be a lawyer to be able to read and comply with all the race rules.
A Big "Thank you" to the people that have offered to help in many different ways. I'm glad I have people that I know I can call on if I need help.
I'm at peace with the fact that RAAM may not be in my future.
Stay tuned for the new plan to be announced shortly.
