Ok, you might think that starting off a blog by exaggerating is not the very best thing to do but really, I'm not. This is the first post for this blog and this blog really is special. At least to me.
I guess the idea of this blog started somewhere around the time when I decided to go for my third desert rally. I figured that since I have made this journey two times before, I have accumulated a lot of experiences and thoughts about the whole rally raid thing and I might as well share them with anyone who might be interested (I guess that includes you). Another benefit of blogging about it is that the stories I tell to people I meet and all the memories I share with you whom I have been to the desert with tend to change over time and they are not quite the same every time they are retold. Though putting them in print here might not make them last forever, they will at least last for as long as this blog exists.
Anyhow, this blog will be about my thoughts about, and the stuff I do in preparation of, my next desert rally. Which right now happen to be the Tuareg Rally 2011. But more about that later. Of course, I will probably throw in one or two "war stories" about my previous rallies and other random stuff as well when I'm at it.
