From Robby Gordon.com
Robby Gordon’s quotes following stage 13:
“It was definitely a day of follow the leader. The track was narrow and dusty and we had very little room to pass. We never really got to open up the Hummer and show its strength. The Dakar is winding down and I’m satisfied with what we have accomplished. We certainly have quite a few pages of notes that we will apply to our program next year. The best thing that has come out of this year Dakar Rally is the experience our team has gained. My guys are already looking forward to coming back next year and hitting the ground running right away. Of course we are proud to be the first American team and manufacture to win a stage in the Dakar, but truthfully there is unfinished business for us here. Even though it looks like we are going to win the open category for this year’s race I think when we return our main objective is to give the factory teams a run for their money.”
Have they given all of them a run for the money? Oh yeah…
With only one day to go Robby and Andy still stand 8th overall. Wow. That alone is something to be proud of. No doubt Team USA will be the winner’s of the open class. I love that he said we still have “unfinished business”. Rabbit business, no doubt.
So….5th today in stage 14. Pretty darn good. Way to Go Andy Robby and TEAM DAKAR USA.
Andy Grider only has a couple of really significant aspect’s in his scope for tomorrow’s stage. Robby, on the other hand has a ton. This is a life changing time for Robby, on a long term basis. I am going to do Andy’s first.
The scope’s for the last day of The Dakar Rally are:

It indicates a balance in your life between self-assertion and the need to relate to others. In a sexual relationship this balance is manifested by your ability to give and receive equally. In friendships you can be yourself without difficulty. Creative activities are also favored by this influence. If you are not artistic, you may spend the day working to beautify your immediate surroundings. This influence may bring about financial opportunities, particularly for investment in a new and unique venture. Your own individuality is best expressed by getting involved, financially or emotionally, in projects that are different and innovative.

This morning you will keep your emotions under control, not in a repressive, negative manner, but in a way that enables you to take a more sober and realistic view of life. You are able to put up with considerable adversity and strain during this time because it gives you patience and reserve strength. While you are not inclined to talk about your feelings to just anyone, you do not evade them in yourself. You may very well go off by yourself at this time to think about and evaluate your development. If you have a problem, seek out an older person whose wisdom you respect, who can offer emotional support and suggest practical and immediate answers. You need common-sense answers now that can be applied directly.

Valid during many months: At this time the ideal and the real are well balanced in your life, and you are in an excellent position to reflect upon their relationship to each other. Ask yourself what is true for you and then ask then ask what you would like to be. In this way you can see which is which without the confusion that so often marks our efforts to separate the ideal from the real. At the same time you can see what actions you can take to help bring about the ideal in place of what is presently real and to make it a solid and useful part of your own life and of the lives of those around you.
But you are not impatient now, and you are much more willing to accept what is real than at other times. You see no real contest between the real and the ideal. Also you are not so concerned about getting your own way that you insist on the kind of ego battle with the real world in which either you or it wins. (And reality usually wins in these cases.)
You are patient now, because this influence enables you to live on very little. You are inclined to be abstemious and opposed to self- indulgence, and you may subject yourself to a rather stern regimen of alternating work and introspection. At this time you are most concerned with higher truths and how you can actualize them in your own life.
This is a good time to withdraw somewhat from your usual activities, to stand back and see what you have accomplished and what remains to be done. You are capable of adopting a very calm and meditative attitude so that you can choose intelligently and take the proper course of action.

Less routine ***
Valid during many months: This influence deepens your existing relationships and makes them more profound. It may also bring an important new friendship or love relationship that will have an important effect upon your life. In general your personal relationships will become less routine. Through them you will be able to transform your life and acquire greater insight into your own psychology, at least concerning relationships. However, this process is not to be feared because it happens in a relatively gentle manner and heightens your appreciation of your relationships.
Your sense of pleasure and enjoyment is also heightened during this time. You are able to get far more enjoyment than usual from the things you do for fun. You approach everything with far more emotional intensity.
Any love relationship that comes at this time will have an intensity of feeling that will amaze you. You may not have been aware of the power of your feelings, but now you have the chance to experience them directly and be transformed in the process. This does not necessarily mean that the relationship itself or the other person is in any way extraordinary. It is your own power to feel and love that has grown stronger.
If you have any intrinsic artistic and creative ability, this influence will deepen it and increase the tempo of your artistic activity. Also your work will have a profound quality that it may have lacked, and others will see that your work has a significance beyond the surface appearance. The only negative quality of this influence is that its energies can be abused. If you are so inclined, you can degenerate into a pointless sensualism, in which you are interested only in physical sensations, not in elevating your consciousness and growing as a human being. Love and creativity have the power to transform your life at this time. Don’t waste this opportunity.

During this time authority figures and close relationships, especially old ones from the past, are most likely the objects of your revolt, if you feel it necessary to rebel. You will be much more easily angered than usual, because you quickly interpret everything as a threat to your ego. Above all else, you feel that you must assert your ego in your own highly individual way. And if you have been unconscious of the need for creative change in your life, you are likely to be quite explosive. Sometimes, however, the “explosions” happen to you, which is a sign from your environment that you need to break away from something, although what that is may not be at all obvious. An accident can be the sign of frustrated ego energies transmuted into destructive powers.

This morning you should have a very strong sense of well-being. Your inner self is functioning harmoniously, and you do not feel emotional turmoil or strife. At the same time you are most contented with the familiar elements of your life. You enjoy being at home with relatives and friends, and you like being surrounded by the objects you are used to. You are not in the mood for adventures, challenges and major changes, nor is it necessary to be so. There will be other times for adventure. Now you should restore and rejuvenate yourself in peace and quiet. Physical comfort is especially important to you at this time, but it doesn’t have to be lavish. Your need is for a comfortable environment that seems supportive. You want to be surrounded by whatever you feel protects you.

This morning you can assert yourself in a positive manner and stand your ground if necessary. You may feel more courage and confidence than usual, which you express by taking the initiative in making emotional contacts with others. You speak very directly and forcefully, but without being offensive, which others will respect you for. This is a good time to work as a leader with groups of people. You understand what is needed, and you can unify your objectives and theirs, usually by talking them around to your point of view. Whenever you talk with others, you radiate an inner excitement, as if you were ready for immediate action. Under this influence you have the capacity to start projects, although you should keep in mind that this is a short-term influence and its effects will not last long.

Tonight you experience a time of inner and outer equanimity. You can stop and take stock of yourself without feeling completely caught up in the usual turmoil and rush of events. Even if your affairs are not going too smoothly, this influence will provide a breathing space. If you have been feeling harried, you now have at least a brief opportunity to take it easy. And if you are relaxed, you will feel even better now. Your relationships with groups and friends are quite good during this time. You are able to understand other people’s needs without losing sight of your own desires for fulfillment. Opportunities may arise from unexpected corners that will improve your life in small ways at least. In general you will benefit from being out in the world today and having as much contact with others as possible.

This influence normally indicates a few hours of unusually intense feelings. Tonight you will have a strong desire to know yourself and to experience life largely through the emotion. This is probably not the best time for work that requires a completely clear and dispassionate state of consciousness, but you will not feel like doing that kind of work anyway. You will want to engage your emotions in whatever you do, and you will experience a richness of feeling and inner life that is satisfying in itself. This influence is good for any business matters concerning the general public or for any situation in which you have to appear before the public or a large group. Otherwise it is not an influence that stimulates drive and ambition.
Now…for fun,great information and $%^%’s and giggles, go read Fly’s update at The Dakar Spot. His excitement is contagious and hilarious. You can tell he is on an adrenaline high that is going to leave him totally exhausted eventually. Collapse…sleep…snore.
Don’t forget…you can watch Robby’s entire journey through the rally at YouTube.com/RGM7.
Like I said, this is a very significant time in Robby’s life. What will he do in NASCAR this year? He is going to be focused. I promise you that.
He may even make The Chase.
