    Great RR and great job on the CC. I knew you'd make it look easy! Next year you'll be ready for the VQ. It was great to see you and Jay and Aid station #1.

    Here are a few more pics. We were manning the unofficial aid station at four corners. Handed out 4 dozen PB&Js, afew hot dogs, 15 gallons of water and a couple boxes of bars and gel.

    Sorry for the late reply, just got back from San Felipe shooting a desert race this past weekend.

    The main reason that the digital file is 640 pixels wide is so that you have a photo to use for personal reasons, such as your website, myspace/facebook, as an avatar, etc. Its not to make prints from, as that's one of our "products" we offer to people.

    This was my first MB race and actual thought about just putting the files up for people to have, but being a photographer myself that would be stepping on the toes of other photographers who come out to the events and do it as a living. Not trying to get rich off you guys, just help pay for the kid I have coming in August :).

    I'm planning on cover the Traverse in May, and will have a little different pricing structure for digital files, depending on what someone would like to use it for.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words, and thanks for all the orders!

    Take care,
    Jason

    Thanks for the photos Eric and Jason. Mine came in this week. They are posted around my desk, along with my number plate and feather, for me to reminisce about good times while at work.

    Thanks for the Blog. Great pics. Just a note, the race started at 5:30am and the "Pow Wow" which is what the day is called is 2 events on the same day: Vision Quest 56.5 miles, 11,000 ft of elevation, Counting Coup 44 miles, 8000 ft of elevation.

    Thanks for the stories and great photos. That's me in the second photo coming down Motorway. This was my first attempt (maybe last) at the Vision Quest, and luckily I was able to make the cutoffs and finish the race.

    Gene, did that order of feather stickers ever come in?

    Really anxious to get my hands on one--should make the perfect template for my new tramp stamp.

    Dont make the mistake of putting those stickers on your car if you get a new car every few years. All mine are gone with that old car. :(

    I'll ask Chris V if he has ordered some. If there are, I'll grab a bunch and get them out.
