The start of the adventure that is the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood is finally here (almost). My bags are packed, the car (pictured) is ready and headed to the rally from Denver, and I'm waiting for my ride to arrive and pick me up. I'm riding out with Team O'Neil, who is bringing an absurd seven Fiestas to the event. Once they grab me it will be a full day on the road, arriving in Salem, Missouri sometime tomorrow evening. I'm probably looking forward to this rally more than any since my first RA event in 2011. The roads are some of the smoothest and fastest in the country, it's the only event left with a proper water splash, and Rory and I are in a faster car now. We haven't talked strategy yet, but I'm thinking "Attack!" sounds like a pretty solid one.
