    Marking my spot for the beginning of tomorrow's F5! This year I'm being torn in several directions but determined to keep up and keep an eye on the hubby and our boys!

    In keeping with the times, thought I'd ask what the official emoticon that is the Advrider 'firehose'?

    Maybe it is something that cannot be emoticonned!!

    Possibly. In keeping with the schedule today, on Todo Noticias http://tn.com.ar/envivo/24hs there were several 10 minute breaks of registration. I would hope they would have someone out there.

    2nd January:
    Podium, Prologue and night at the “light bivouac” in Rosario

    • The podium at Tecnopolis: Following a morning briefing session for the competitors, the podium is not simply for protocol, but will be an integral part of the liaison section leading to the prologue.
    • The Prologue: Taking place close to Buenos Aires, the main purpose of this ten kilometre route, which will count towards the general Rally standings, is to establish the starting order for the following day.


    • Night at the “light” bivouac in Rosario: After this long day, competitors and their assistance teams will spend the night in Rosario, heading towards Villa Carlos Paz and the first “real” day of the race.

    What time does the podium ceremony start? I think I saw 9.30 local time somewhere here but not sure... I have TVP and TN on two tabs, so far a steady stream from both..

    @troy safari carpente myself and possibly others are using a white theme for advrider (both default style and revo are have a white background), and the yellow text is completely illegible, try going to a more KTMy shade that looks good on both black and white backgrounds... Just a suggestion..

    Black Responsive (Orange) theme is better for night vision.
    You're going to need it when when you hear that sweeper truck at 3am and you're 50 pages deep. :type
