A couple of friends and I have been toying with the idea of putting together a one-time event to coincide with the apocalyptic vision of the Mayan people.
We would be putting together an expedition/rally/treasure hunt from the USA to Tikal (or nearby) in December 2012 - so we can be at a premier Mayan site on the Dec 21st 2012 "end of the world" date.
The overall plan is to drive from the USA with your own vehicle, collect some items along the way that are essential to survive, and accumulate points in the process. Whomever finishes with the highest number of points would win a significant prize.
The rally would end nearby a Mayan site with some sort of celebration. It would not be about speed and would be open to all kinds of vehicles. Spaces would be limited.
This is still just a crazy idea and we have not put much research into it, but I'm curious to see what you guys think.
Would you participate? Would you like to help organizing it?
