I got to spend an entire day with my 8-year-old nephew after not seeing him for 2 years, I told him about the race & we talked about sharks & he said he thought I was cool. I thought I already had enough motivation for the Gobi March, until his mom sent me a text with what he said after I dropped him off.

I’m still excited to help out the Charles Darwin Foundation, but keeping the favorite uncle title is definitely paramount.
