OB Desert Rally 2017 with Overland Bound

Postby Renodemona » Sun Jun 04, 2017 3:28 pm

Went out with the local overland bound group for a waypoint style rally in the desert at night. Teams of 2, everyone got a set of waypoints with description (old cabin, mine building, water tower, etc) and first team to take a picture at all the waypoints and get back to base camp wins! I was teamed up with a guy who had a built Kia and we totally won. Here's some of the highlights:
"Wait, what's on fire!?"

Nice score for the old school! I have to admit I never thought I would see the words 'built' and 'kia' used together but it looks like a cool little rig.
