What is WRONG with people? These are expensive machines! Now you'll both have to waste riding time putting them correct!

The Volvo XC. This would be its 3rd outing. I was able to do ~95% of the course using it in the past. My thoughts for costume theme would be as a Volvo rally car team. Interested?

I don't have a costume of any sort. No helmet, firesuit, any of that!

Looks like fun, but I'd never be allowed to run the Outback in something like that...

I have a mechanics coverall you could use, if you are interested in doing the run. Costumes are encouraged, not mandatory.

Also, Herr Oberst: ja oder nei? Was tun?

@Charles: they do grant a limited number of "non-euro waivers" (basically: do you know someone in the inner circle already? Toby is such a person, so you would probably be in if you wish) . Again; I'm looking for co-pilots/navigators/ballast. I can seat 4.

It would be more a matter of getting the idea past my wife....I'm scheduled to be out of town delivering that week, so maybe next time?

If there is interest, I will be more proactive next year and organize a team earlier.
