Ted and I would like to take this time to commend Andrew for the excellent job he is doing keeping us on target. There are two obvious reasons why a navigator is necessary, number one being it is rule #5 in the Guinness rules for this event. No navigator, invalidates the attempt. That aside Ted and I can think of a better reason, he is an awesome asset to this challenge. From traffic, to gas stops, to food, to pace, to documentation, to clear direction....etc. He is the one who keeps us alert. Andrew gets the least amount of sleep. With his computer on his lap he continuosly is updating our logs, calculating our mileage and progress, checking updated traffic reports and assuring us of the best availible gas stop ahead. Balancing three stopwatches at one time Andrew always knows where we are supposed to be and where we are at all times regarding reaching our goals. Rule #5? You bet that is a great reason to have Andrew, BUT he has become the greatest asset to our team.
