I have now competed in two road rallies, and I'm very proud to say that I've won my class both times. Props to Chris Stanley for the stellar navigation, and for crisis management! Props to Chris Kimmelshue for his super diligent work helping me prep the car.
This road-rally stuff is fun. Man, o man, is it fun. 3+ hours of technical driving, 64 individual instructions, and brakes that never failed. Sweet. And we captured about an hour of the rally on video.
Now I can't wait for the June night-time rally, although the schedule for that one is from 6pm til midnight. Yikes!
Friday is Amanda's birthday! Eeek! Man, these things just sneak right up on you. You're going along just fine, with a birthday some nebulous number of months away, and then BAM! it's in 4 days. How the hell does that work?
Speaking of birthdays, today is my dad's 60th! Happy birthday, dad!
