Regarding my note below and "ultrascammers" calling me an idiot: No I am not an idiot (other than for not knowing how to use the 'quote' button). You (ultrascammers) are the idiot (and an ass, besides).
I am not going to copy from the ultralist (I respect the privacy of those who have posted there), but look for the posts from June 6, under the Subject:
"Re: Robert Young's Transcon record attempt Midway report"
and you will find the trip planned/scheduled and the beginnings of uList financing for the trip. (Initially RYs team implied they would even pay for an observer to come out, but no one believed them so the ulist immediately financed it and fit it to Laz's schedule (all right there if you check that subject line, including Ray being in on it)
Asher's valuable contribution was the next day.
==== below is the stuff I would have quoted if I was not such an idiot so that I knew how ===
As I posted several days ago, the uList trip was already scheduled the day before Asher's first post here (Markus is the man!) (People (laz and company) do have lives, and so it was scheduled to take off several days later ... as it did).
-- and ultrascammer's response to me:
Idiot. Read Ray's update where he says that they didn't intend to go until later but changed their minds.
Are all ultra runners liars?
