Luckily, I was recruited to go to Salem on Wednesday evening with a driver who wanted to use my bugeye for recce. We got there just after the ice pellets started and the roads were still passable. While my car was out and about I was helping Curt set up temporary chicanes on Pigeon Roost and Floyd Tower (thank you, RallyAmerica) and by that time the roads were, in a word, challenging.
Just like last year, ATC on our second stage of the day turned into a traffic jam. I had a good team, and the co-drivers were understanding, so it all worked out. I will be taking warmer shoes next year though - sneakers & slush don't work well together.
Last but not least - thank you to the teams who took the time to clean off your car numbers. My team's Executive Vice President In Charge of Completing The Start Log thanks you, and my Start Radio operator thanks you.
