There aren’t words to describe how HOT it was today. I can’t believe are having so much fun while “baking” in the car. Call us crazy but we love doing this. The first leg today had an interesting challenge with huge farm machinery blocking the road. We had a scary time while trying to pass a combine. Seems like the driver didn’t want us to pass so just as we started to go around him he turned toward us and stopped. Needless to say it REALLY scared me but fortunately Maxine was able to stop. I did say a prayer of thanks for us being safe. We are really proud because even with that situation we got a 1 on the leg. Even though the day was long (we started at 7 am) we only had 3 checkpoints. We were pleased with our scores of 1, 6 and ACE. Most of the day was driving with the work being on the driver to keep the correct speed so I’m expecting a day of navigator work tomorrow. No matter what, I know we will have a day of fun, excitement and adventure.
