    I figured you didn't do it for the prize. (What a great Dad/Son thing to do!) Just curious how creative Tesla was with the prize. Maybe I and my daughter or son(s) will try as well if there are slots still available. (Not that I would do it for the prize, but I also wouldn't do it without a prize if you understand... kind of like I'm not going to run 26.2 miles unless I get my $1.50 medal )

    Anyway - Congratulations!

    Many congrats from someone who had planned to attempt it myself but was told the elevation changes in my proposed route would doom my efforts. Great accomplishment and great story!
