Dear, Aunt Mildred – I’m So Confused About The VOID Rally 10

Dear, Aunt Mildred – I’m So Confused About The VOID Rally 10

 

Dear, Aunt Mildred-

Long time reader, first time writer.

Today I spent some time trying to plan my Void Rally route. You know, based on the waypoints sent out on Friday? There were over 300 of them in total! Oh, Aunt Mildred, I’m so confused, I just don’t know what to do! I’m like a deer in the headlights. Never before have  I been so unable to zero in on a route that seems right. Not even on my first rally.

No matter what I string together, I feel like my route is so low on points that surely it will be a disaster. I’m afraid that when they see our scores posted all the other riders at the banquet will point and laugh at me.

What should I do?

Signed,

Hopeless on Long Island


 

Dear Hopeless,

What should you do? Well you could start by going in to your bedroom, opening up the top dresser drawer and pulling out your big girl panties and putting them on.

Bitch, please. Get a hold of yourself!

So you plan a shitty route and you find yourself at the bottom of the score sheet. Who cares? Did you ride? Did you see stuff you might not have ever visited unless someone said “go here!”? Is there beer at the end?

Yes?

Well, then – Plan your ride, ride your plan and screw the small stuff like… points. Ride for riding sake and get your shit together, woman!

Yours in Horsepower,

Void Rally 10: Lights, Camera…Speculation

Void Rally 10: Lights, Camera…Speculation

The 2015 24-hr Void Rally 10 doesn’t say much by way of what the theme of the rally will be. As in years past, you are left trying to piece together clues based on tidbits of information that trickle out of HQ. But taking cues from the rally graphic and the text on the event homepage a little speculation is in order.

Captain Obvious would like to weigh in – it appears to be movies and/or TV related. Thank you, Captain.

But… you just never know with this wily Rallymaster. It could just be that you have to appear in all of your own bonus photos or (heaven forbid) a video. The reason I say that is because of this cute little tidbit on the rally homepage:

There will be lights, cameras and ACTION! in this year’s event. You’ll produce your own ride and have the opportunity to be the star of your pictures.

A video might be a stretch but could it be a selfie-rally? Will bonus stops be places that appeared in movies or television or places that inspired a show? My first thought was maybe I’ll get a chance to visit Mayberry or Cooter’s Place. I’ve got my selfie-stick and my Gorillapod at the ready.

We’ve got about 6 weeks to go before the curtain opens.
