HOORAY HOORAY HOORAY!!!!

You're notice is here for MudCoast! That's right--no more guessing when the Road Rally team is going to call it.... we told you we'd give you 48 hours notice--well.... we're doubling that!

SO. Go to www.roadrallycharities.com and REGISTER for MUDCOAST. This is a FREE event!

We'll be meeting for breakfast at Waveland Cafe near the Fairgrounds on the EAST SIDE. We'll be there around 9:00am. We'll be setting out on our MudCoast adventure at 10:30am. YOU MUST BE THERE BY 10:30!!! The ship sets sail... we're no waiting... no matter how many of the Road Rally cell phones you know--we're outta there!!!

There will be 3 awards for this year's MudCoast.

The "No Prayer to Finish" AWARD
If you bring you're Neon with Blizzaks you'll definitely qualify for this award

The "Good Samaritan" AWARD
You qualify for this award, even though you're mocking the Neon because you're in your Series III Land Rover. But your heart softens when you see that Neon/Blizzak set up up to its axles in mud and you wench them out... You are... a Good Samaritan.

The "Dirtiest Vehicle" AWARD
While the Series III is wenching out the Neon, you decide to wreak havoc on the Level B road and shoot mud everywhere... and you qualify for the dirtiest vehicle award. However, you shoot all that mud on the Neon. So most likely, if not careful, the Neon goes away with 2 awards that day.

We'll be getting back into town later afternoon on Saturday. The dirtier the better. If you want anyone to meet up with us, we'll be finishing at our favorite place in town--Skybox Lounge.

We'll be presenting awards, watching raw video, and sharing pictures from the day at 6:00pm sharp at Skybox Lounge.

THIS EVENT IS FREE!!!!!

So come out and enjoy a crazy day in the beautiful world of Level Bs.

BUT WE CANNOT STRESS--THESE ARE "ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK" ROADS. WE ARE NOT LIABLE. WE PROBABLY WON'T HAVE ANYTHING OTHER THAN OUR OWN WENCHES. YOU MAY HAVE TO CALL A TOW TRUCK. THEY DON'T LIKE IT WHEN WE DO THIS. THEY LIKE TO CHARGE LOTS WHEN WE GET STUCK! SO KNOW YOUR VEHICLE, AND KNOW THIS EVENT. NO WHINERS WHEN YOU GET STUCK. ONLY LOTS OF SMILES AND LAUGHS!

This is NOT a speed event. In fact, sometimes the slower the better. Your goal is to take lots of pictures, to finish the course, and to make it back to Skybox to share stories and see who won the awards.

Go to www.roadrallycharities.com and sign up today. See you Saturday morning!!!

Ryan & Kevin & Dan & Julia & Jeff & Susan & Eric & Jason & Steve @ Road Rally Charities

I will try to rig up a mount stand for dash cam but i think dennis should go ahead of me so i can get shots of his BRAT.

I put the USMB sticker from McBrat onto the rescue wagon last night.
