okay, so it was not an intercontinental road rally
that speeds through tough terrain
in a variety of countries over a number of days
i went on a nighttime road rally scavenger hunt
that went through a few cities for a few hours
(or more if you got lost or had an inside track on where to find something)
a wonderful adventure with a great team and lots of laughs
a marriage proposal, a virgin mary statue, a condescending best buy nerd,
a welcoming fast food worker, a parking lot dance-off
swinging on a swing set with a group
ending with a dinner with people i had never met before.
no bumps in the road, just pure fun.
*The Mongol Rally is an intercontinental car rally that begins in Europe and ends in Ulan-Ude, Russia. The rally originally ended in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. However, to avoid punitive costs and taxes associated with vehicle imports and disposal, the rally now passes through Mongolia and ends in Ulan-Ude. The principal launch is from Goodwood Circuit in the United Kingdom, with subsidiary starting points in the Czech Republic.
