    Third year volunteer here, wanted to know if anybody is really camping this year. If so....would anyone be willing to share a site. I only have a small pickup. I do have a small tent but would truck camper it if space was limited. camping at wallyworld...too many lights. may just go gorilla style

    Hey Boats, call me in the am. Thinking of being there tomorrow night to try some new tricks and need some legal sand.

    Here's the Rally Guide.

    The spectator section with a schedule starts on page 30.

    Pages 31-41 have maps of the surrounding area, the stages, and the specific spectator areas.

    Thanks for coming out to cheer us on and enjoy the party!!:clap

    Anyone able to hook me up with transportation from the service area to the start on satuday? Racing solo. I have a large sprinter van with plenty of tools, spares, electricity, compressor, shelter, etc, that anyone would be welcome to use as their service base if interested.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    We'll be dropping our service vehicle off at the Service Sat morning and riding to the start. If you want to caravan over to Chesterfield that's cool. There is a gas station in Chesterfield a few blocks from the start where we'll stop to top off if you need it. I plan to get to Service by 7 and head to the start about 7:30.

    Look for bike 104 and 150. Silver 4 door Jeep Wrangler. Ohio tags.

    Are you dropping off your bike at the start then driving your van to the service area? Then need transportation back to the start?

    Hey: I need to leave my support element at the service also, so if I can catch a ride back with someone let me know.

    Thanks

    Checker Yellow Cab

    [​IMG] Serving the Patrick Area. (803) 799-3311

    The video says they take credit cards. :rofl
    It's only 13 miles so should be cheap if we split it four ways. :deal

    (Note: Not an official endorsement of checker yellow cab)

    If this doesn't work we could rent a limo....show up in style!!

    Head's up about gas in Chesterfield.

    The Stroud's Sunoco at the corner of 145 and hwy 9 is closed. The one that was closest to Park Expose'.

    Gas is know at Grits N Groceries 1/2 mile east on 9 (towards Cheraw)
    or 3/4 mile west on 9 at ALCO.

    And watch your speed! LEO's nabbed someone last year and cost him a podium. Budgets have been tight and our locals are hungry for funds!

    Braden: For the price of a cab, I bet we could get a Rally car to drive us. :lol3 It would help the "cause" and be a blast!

    I'll be crewing for one of the rally cars participating - but if anyone needs an extra hand, look for the subaru with a camo wrap! :D
    Can't wait to see all you guys out there, might bring the big KTM for some fun next year!
