No Alibi 2011 Rally

A truly fine event with lots of gravel. A two day weekend get-a-way in eastern Washington for the TSD rally purist.

Another great event from RASC. It started out a bit ominous for us since the
alternator gave out on the trip from Bothell to Moses Lake. Installed the spare
from my parts box and all was good. I have to add that rally folks are great.
When I mentioned that the alternator failed, Jason Stokes replied without
hesitation, "If it fits, want to borrow my spare?"
Day one was fantastic. Some of the best roads I've ever seen. Washington has
some great countryside (certainly better than the east coast where we spent most
of our years rallying), but Rallymaster Dan Comden found the cream of the crop in the
SE portion of the state. An unusual weekend (for this year) of no rain and
sunny weather was just icing on the cake. The route for the last two hours of
Day 1 heading down into Lewiston was indescribably beautiful.
Just an aside on the event. I know a little about laying out an event like this
(no, I don't plan on doing this again anytime soon; too many people out here
more competent than I ever was), but the behind the scenes organization was
incredible. Take a 300+ mile route with a minimal number of checkpoint workers
and manage to put around 30 checkpoints along the route takes thought and
planning; it certainly doesn't happen by accident. Add to this, the ability to
score the day and post provisional results within two hours or so of the last
car arriving at the overnight stop is nothing short of astounding.
Day two heading back to Moses Lake was not quite as exciting running more in the
flat-lands than in the hills. But the speeds were a little brisker to make up
for that. Then after the event, the BBQ was excellent and the results and awards
handed out in plenty of time for the trip home in daylight. We opted out of
that in favor of another evening in beautiful downtown Moses Lake and a
leisurely trip home on Monday.
