[I can do the occasional 500 mile day, with enough ibuprofen. These folks are in a totally different class]

Here’s a video of the start: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Lh2piuQg9U&feature=youtu.be

    I think usanian police / insurers / whatevers wouldnt be so keen about that sort of thing :P And rules seem to be fun.. too bad i have normal people as friends :(

    “To make it even harder no fancy cars are allowed – max 1.2 litre engines. 4×4 are an absolute NO and other equipment such as an GPS’ shouldn’t be used – this means paper maps only or navigation by the stars
    Choosing a car for the rally is a challenge and hopefully a lot of fun as well. There are a couple of restrictions for the rally. The car has to have an engine size of 1.2 litres or less, the car must be registered after 2004, and taking a 4×4 or large vehicle is considered being a pansy.”

    • On the other hand, im now beyond “lets buy 15L of vodka for 2 weeks @ 4 people and go to spain to get wasted type of thing.” so that sort of thing wouldnt work with me now. I am with vegans and healthies now :)
