I know that's right. Maybe he will figure out dad knows what he's talking about now and slow down. 70mph in the rain is too fast and I would hear him say "I'm only doing the speed limit", hmmmmmm hard lesson to learn.

He's that age where they're supposed to learn that....my first car lasted exactly 6 weeks....then I completely toasted it......always go for the frame.....

Ghost....sometimes I think kids these days are way "calmer" than we were....compared to me my old bat is an angel and hasn't done anything nutty so far.....

The best Rally disclaimer. Ever. Makes ours look amateurish. Don't miss the "oh, by the way" entry at the end. lol

From the Wipe Your Own Ass Rally...

Important to know if you decide to join us:
The formula will be the same as WYOA Portugal, we supply the tracks and the waypoints/campsites where we meet up for the evening/night and everybody can do what they want en however they like to fill in their days during the trip. But… when we where there, we could not find any campsites in the inlands (where the best tracks are), so we did a lot of wild camping. We will try to find as many campsites on route as we can find, so we have definite places to meet up, but a big chance we can’t find campsites for all the nights. In that case we will give you a track for 2 days, which you can split in half wherever you want, you will need to find your own lodging, like wildcamping, hotel etc... You’re free to do whatever you like, just know that not all nights will be arranged.
We do not all ride in one or a few big groups, or do we organise for everybody to have a riding buddy, you are responsible for forming riding groups yourselves.

The tracks will not be perfect, so you will stumble on closed roads, un-rideable roads, non-existing roads, etc. So know how to work with your GPS and maps if necessary. Also keep using your head, don’t go down a hill, you’re not sure you can get back up and vice versa, also Croatia still has plenty of landmines, we saw many warning signs, so don’t leave the main track when you see those signs.

Well, it may be learning the lesson the hard way, but the school of hard knocks is sure an effective teacher. If everyone can walk away, then he got a passing grade.

I love the name of that rally "The Wipe Your Own Ass rally." Its perfect. Tells you right up front who's responsible for your riding.

I wonder what a Croatian land mine sign looks like?

Dave, don't get bowling balls out. I am not sure landmine bowling has been approved as a sport
