Thanks.

This year's theme was the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500, and I knew going into it that to be in the top 10, I would have to go to the Indianapolis raceway the morning of the Indianapolis 500, and that's after going to Washington D.C. the weekend of Rolling Thunder, and after going to Manhattan the last weekend of Fleet Week, which both were required stops. I decided that if in order to win, I would have to slab it from Manhattan to Indianapolis, and then back to Hagerstown, then I didn't want to win.

Here is my route with my bonus stop pictures....

Did you not hear the "Oh Sh!t" immediately after the CLUNK?

Found a cover shot for "BlastOFF Adventures"

I don't know. It definitely would have been more likely, but deep down inside I was just paranoid it was a trap...and I know I'm one to talk, but driving from Manhattan to Indianapolis, just to turn around and head back, sounded so miserable

I also recommend the Void. I've already given it to some of you, but for those who are interested in seeing if they would enjoy the route planning part of this, I can send you the rally packet for last year's Void 24 hour rally.

Check out your body language at the end of this clip when you hear me say that over the G4 before knowing what I did.

I really appreciate the work you did showing us rally virgins just how much work and stamina you need to get a good placement on the board. Very impressed Sailor! As you know... tough to make a Marine envious. Guilty!

I am not saying this will make you start liking the program, but your version is about 3 years old. Get the free update here.
