Doug, a pleasure to meet you too. For those who have not met Doug, here's a sample of his ink. *IF* I were to ever get a tat, this is the only thing I would consider putting on my body.

Melissa is holding my signed first edition of The Perfect Vehicle (her first book) and John is holding my signed (by both of them) copy of The Man Who Would Stop At Nothing.

I submitted the above photo to Iron Butt Magazine and already got a positive response from Steve Hobart, so maybe we'll see this in the next issue.

I also got to meet Rally Mistress Lisa Landry; a very nice lady indeed. Wicked sense of humor.

Yeah, she's been bit with the disease.... :mrgreen:
