Game time is almost here for van 2. We're currently at exchange 18, waiting for Matt and Jeff to finish. Ready to go after a quick stop at Sizzle Pie in Portland.
Knock on wood, but we haven't seen the levels of crazy van pileup delays as we did last year. Mist, OR will be the real test, but maybe the early start time worked...
It's bad. Three almost-misses for Ben Liebald, Ben Carr and Angie Strange.
I think Kerry Murrill, driver extrodinaire, would have been proud of our "adaptive routing" and creative use of u-turns to get out of traffic.
About to hand it back to van 1 in Portland.
I think one of the hardest things about these relays is the waiting. Van 2 is currently in irons (as the sailors would say) at the exchange for leg 7. We should start in about an hour, but in the meantime, we can only hang out, stretch and not let nerves get to us. These races are fits of energy for a few hours followed by a slow burn of laying low and chatting with teammates & other teams (one just let us know that our blog address is 401'ed on the van--thanks Team Glory Days)
