    Yeah, I just checked the Eco web site and they don't even talk about the next race yet. ( I bet Mark is also too busy with his new ventures to think about Eco )

    But I can't wait for the next adventure, as this is the granddaddy of reality shows.

    After the last one, 2002-Fiji, that was broadcast May 2003, USA network announced that they would NOT be broadcasting anymore.

    I hadn't heard that, thanks. Wonder if it will go back to Discovery Channel, didn't they do the first one?

    (or a major network) It's a damn good competition.

    Eco-Challenge

    The following e-mail that I found on an Adventure Racing site spells doom for the Eco-Challenge. It seems they sold their event equpment back in February of this year. There is also a rumor that the TV Contract is up for sale, too. Perhaps someone besides Burnett will run it one day.

    From: "Tricia Middleton"
    Subject: Eco-Challenge Event Inventory Sale

    Attention Race Directors or aspiring Race Directors:

    Eco-Challenge is liquidating their event production inventory.
    Everything must go. There are about 16,000 items, ranging from
    rescue beacons to zip ties - everything that was owned by the event
    and shipped overseas to produce the event. Items range in from brand
    new to 8 years old.

    Examples are:

    EPIRB Rescue Beacons
    Weatherhaven Tent
    200m spools of 11mm climbing rope new and used
    Generators
    GPS's
    Rubbermaid Action Packer boxes
    Hammocks
    Rigging bolts
    Heli Nets
    Bungee Cords
    Cooksets
    Field Toilets
    Gas cans
    Glow Sticks
    Power Strips
    Voltage Converters
    Traffic Cones
    Tents
    Flagging Tape
    Stuffsacks
    Zip Ties

    You get the idea... lots of stuff small and large, in various
    conditions.

    These items will not be sold individually. The entire inventory will
    be sold to a person or company who agrees to take all items, in their
    present condition. Everything is located in Santa Monica, CA in a
    storage room.

    The bid must include emptying out the room. The space is desperately
    needed as soon as possible.

    All bids are welcome.

    If you are interested in receiving the entire inventory list to place
    a bid, please contact me at triciamiddleton@e... and I will
    be happy to send it to you. If you would like to submit a bid, you
    may see the entire inventory by appointment.

    Cheers,

    Tricia Middleton

    I agree. I liked the way it was presented on Discovery.
