Just got back from a little ride around town with that Marshal Bird character. Tell ya what...I learned so much from my mistakes last year. But I think I just learned as much additional information while tooling around with him. I'm going to need to think about some last minute nutritional things (I'm not real educated on that kind of stuff) that he talked about/suggested. I also have a real good visual on some of the segments that I have not seen before. Marshal's been doing this kind of stuff for a while now and he knows a thing or two. I really wasn't nervous but after reviewing some of the names on the start list and hearing about them...I am now. Keep your eyes on Jefe Branham, Stefan Griebel, Dave Harris, Owen Murphy, Scott Morris, Ethan Passant, Jason Shellman.....oh boy.
