Comments: Born to Run... not Really.

You forgot to mention the bit about how the only way onto (or off of) the island is riding in a longboat through the surf. Kind of like where Tom Hanks tries to get off the island in Castaway.

Now for those of us with Vik'ing in our blood, tis no big deal. Longboat ... cross ocean ... using a lodestone and some pointy thing on a platen as a clock to navigate ... no big deal. Of course, its much easier when you can see the stars.

I'm pulling for the race to be excellent for you (as long as I can do it in my sleep - I know these things start way early in the morning - LOL) I know you won't get this before leaving, but I hope you don't activate the internet service (I think you have to call your carrier to do that) because it costs a frigging small fortune per month which I know you don't want to pay!!!

A nice break from the net is a good thing. ;-)
