The Void Rally: I Am Rider Number…
71! Seven one. Seventy one, that’s me. ::takes a deep breath::
Is there any historical or great, positive significance that I can tie to the number 71? Was ice cream invented on the 71st day of the year or anything?
My rally towel arrived today along with a few pages of initial instructions. Over and over the Rallymasters have stressed that reading comprehension will be a rider’s best friend. I’ve read everything slowly, over and over again.
The next thing to come will be the rally book and bonus list, which I will use to plan my route for the rally. I wish I had that right now!
With just a week before lift off, I would say I am more excited than nervous. I have no assumptions about being great at this, but I’m looking forward to riding, seeing stuff and just doing it because well,… it’ll be fun.
The Void has a Yahoo group that allows participants to communicate with each other and the rally staff. Quite a few other riders have reached out to me to offer support, suggestions and tips after I mentioned that this will be my very first rally. There are some really good and kind people out there. I get reminded of that often.
So, now the nail biting until I get my bonus list…
I’ll take all the good vibes you can spare.
