    Awesome! I knew this would really start shaping up into an event as some time went by. The only thing that comes to mind is...geez this is going to be a one-time rally. If all goes well it certainly could lead to more of them but the end of the world theme would not suit.

    I think you should roll in that Trans Am with the mustache! That would really rock!

    I have got some things in the works that may be on the big side of things for the rally. Vehicle, sponsors, ect but not saying anything until it is solid.

    Regardless, I am planning to buy the Subaru sitting next to my house specifically for the rally. That should happen in 1-2 months. I then will start a build thread on it and plan to have the car prep'ed and ready to go for the event by October at the latest.

    It would be awesome to take a truck more kitted out but that is not going to happen for me in time so doing the cheap rally car thing.

    Great footage, congrats! Really cool that they visited some cantinas!

    That narrow road they rode down can also be down by car with a normal wheelbase not to long to make the L turns, there are several similar to that one but that one is one of the most popular ones.

    my next question is, since this is a 9 day rally, or as it appears at least what will camping be like? will it be just wherever you stop, will there be sanctioned stops, Ie group sites? (i think this would be the most fun option), and will there be a spot set up at the end where we can park for a day or 2 and enjoy the area?

    Sorry I missed your question. there will be camping available at the beginning and at the end for sure, and we will provide suggestions alongg the way.
    there won't be any sanctioned stops but we'll plan a few group sites along the way. I am afraid they won't be much time to enjoy as we have activities pretty much every day, but after the rally we will head to Belize for some relaxing time.

    Default Potential Route

    Here is a map of one of the potential routes we are looking into - of course no one will be obligated to follow it...
