It is good to be home with friends and family, back at work doing something useful. If the weather clears I'll be testing my wasted upper body with some track building on Mt Vic, if not, I'll be helping the bros finish the first draft of the 7th edition of Classic New Zealand Mountain Bike Rides.
Well! The fundraising sweepstake was almost too close to call. Just over 60 people pledged support for MSF and 50 of those entered the sweepstake at the same time. There were a few outliers - one guy thought I'd take 66 days! But the bulk of the predictions weren't too far off the mark:
- 16 days: 2
- 17 days: 3
- 18 days: 7
- 19 days: 7
- 20 days: 5
- 21 days: 12
- 22 days: 6
- 23 days: 4
Christian Hoerning was runner-up with an estimate of 19 days 10 hours.
I'll send out a gentle reminder of what people pledged in the next few days.
