Did anyone else get an e-mail a little while back that simply said: and linked to: ?

On Sept. 30th, they are planning on setting the Guinness World Record for the fastest time crossing the Continental United States on a Moped. Maybe we should line up and cheer them on and possibly help them out with refreshment, etc. I don't think it's coming anywhere near me but I'd love keep tabs on their progess.

Here is the info posted on the site:
