Void Rally 10: Preliminary Routing Or More Commonly Known As – Panic Mode
This morning when I opened my email, there was a message from those rapscallions who run The Void. It was the bonus listing file. Before receiving the full rally book with complete instructions on what to do at the bonus stops, the rallymasters for the Void send out waypoint files so that you can begin basic routing. A few days before the rally, participants are then sent the full rally book.
Boy, I though last year’s Yahtzee theme was puzzling. They’ve outdone themselves this year. This preliminary planning is really shining a light on just how anemic my grey matter has become. ::wipes drool from mouth:: With several layers of time and day availability for combo bonus groupings, I am just about at my limit with being able to keep things straight, even with color-coding waypoints in my mapping software.
I think I just need to draw a square on the map to represent my personal riding boundary and just nickel and dime my way back to the barn in Fredericksburg, Virginia at rally end.
For all those other times I thought I was fighting for the middle of the pack? This time I think I’ll be in a race to the bottom. Oofa.
I haven’t seen my rally flag yet. Hopefully the postal service isn’t being delayed by the nasty weather here on the east coast.

I know the feelng. I chise to start in TN this year. I am also on the road if you have not noticed which puts a serious dent in my planning time. And then this morning I saw the floods in SC. Time to redo my route …
Yeah, I’ve been watching your pics roll in. You’ve been a busy boy!
I was wondering how you were going to get your flag. Did you have it sent to the hotel you’re staying at for the start?
I think my brain just went in to information overload when i put ALL of the points on the map. Yesterday I tried a more methodical approach, doing the main loop with regular bonuses and then doing the other sets as pick-ups on the way.
I plan on taking a long rest bonus 🙂
