Much attention to the van rental company has not yieleded good resilts. They arrived with a 7 seater van hoping it would be an adquate standin for the expected 15 seater. We got cosy with the promise that a larger van would be delivered later. We shared Android phones to call the company and used many a burner number to get our calls answered as it appeard that the companies outgoing phone system prevented them making any return calls or answering any calls orriginating from a previously used number. Regardless, we sourced a second van! With enough seats! We were happy! And Cosy. But in the end the van vacated - we have ended up just cosy - and looking forward to some free van rentals.
So all 12 people on the team have put in some work. Solid performances all around and the race has settled down a little. However, things can go bump in the night - so stay turned for some early morning updates.
