Here is what we should expect to see for van ...
|I know this is bigger than I thought we were getting, bonus!!!|
Tonight, Ben or myself will move the information from Amelia's spreadsheet to a google doc spreadsheet that can be updated during the race. Some folks will bring iPads (there should be at least 1 per van, and ipad charger, if needed). That way
when Ted gets lost if
something changes, we can update the anticipated start times for each leg as we
Meghan has a bike rack that can attach to a hitch that can carry 2 bikes ... this would mean van 2 has both bikes .... Laura & Ben have 2 bikes, but they are hybrids, not road bikes. They are not the most friendly bikes for hills/racing. But since the runner will prob. be slower than a biker, we should prob. be fine w/this?! anyone else have road bikes they want to bring? Do we want the bikes? If we decide on the bikes, Van 1 will have to squeeze the bikes in van 1 until leg 7, when we can move the bikes to van 2's bike rack .... is this worth it?! what do you guys think?? UPDATE: Greg will bring a bike for van 2. van 1 doesn't have a bike rack, so unless someone feels strongly, we can leave the bikes at home. Van 1 - you ok w/this? I'll send an email so we can discuss.
Lawn chairs can be nice. Preferably ones that fold up real small. For example, Ben and I have 2 camp/stadium chairs that will fit under the seats. We also have these types of lawn chairs - they fold up and will prob. fit under the seats, as well.
Each van will have a cooler (Greg has this under control for Van 2, Van 1 is covered from Laura & Ben). each van should work out their own food situation. Van 1 is having everyone bring their own food for themselves/to share.
You need to arrive to your starting leg 1 hour before your start time to allow time to check-in, show off safety equipment, get race numbers, and take a safety course.
We're looking for "race/bib number attachment thingys" (yes, that is their official name, I swear). It'd be
great to have 2 per van. Otherwise we'll be fiddling w/pins, and who wants to do that.
Greg had some advice for moving the drop off location for the van. Van 1 may try to change the drop off location ... to be determined.
REMEMBER to bring your reflective vest (we need 6-7 per van) and head light/butt light if you said you had one.
Alright ... that's it for now. T-28 hours until some of us start this road trip!
