I need to find the right track so I can deliver the Blue Hummers to the right location. Can someone tell me the right track to take?

This is the new remodeled TB Train Station (the one on the right)the Hummers will be leaving from! The rest of this week will be spent organizing the Hummers and Hot Wheels for their journey. The small Cache was the original Train Station built in 2007. Once I have a chance to review my address book I will send out e-mails for the addresses I don't have. This will take a few days.

 

Have a Great Evening,

It is time to start activating the Blue Hummers. The GaryM53's test Hummer has been activated and has an interesting note about additional miles! TB41JTJ Type in the TB # and get a sneak peek.

I am amazed how you make it more and more exciting and more and more fun for everyone. I can hardly wait for the start of the race! But I feel we all won already. I feel so spoiled! We must be superstar drivers to receive such excellent service. The info tag is great! The numbers are great. All the little details you add just make it more entertaining. Thank you.

Last night I met the inventor of K.I.T.T. and he gave me some special gimmicks and gadgets to instal in my Hummer (#19).

I would rather bet I'll win the race. ;)

Gary, is that legal??? Quick, quick, make a rule against it! Or for it! Hungarians are good inventors, if he can do it, we will surely come up with something, too! I already have some ideas! Wings! Or remote control that will drive my car from one cache to the next! So that will take care of visiting the most caches and travelling the most miles. But, it will also drive to every event on its way to get all the "discovered" logs. No one can steal it, because it will simply drive away at the end of the event or from anyone's backpack. It will be solar powered which will work well as the race is taking place mostly in the sunny period of the year. The flat roof is perfect for installing the solar panel. I will just need to move the #22 sticker from the top to the back or front of the car so the solar panel does not cover it. "The First Environmentally Friendly Hummer" award should be given to this car, too!

Great ideas but we have to keep everything on an even plain. Car #19 is heading for the Hummer hospital for a quick overhaul and check-up. The cars will remain under lock and key until they ship out. I found one car with the floor boards cut out! Fred Flintstone was in the back seat sleeping and when I woke him up he said the racer's owner wanted him to yaba-daba-doo the car along cache to cache.

Tags are being attached and cars are being inspected for anything unusual that may have been attached to make it go faster. So far everything looks great! Only (1) racer left to arrive. Snow storm in the East kept the train tracks closed. Hard to believe when it was 81 here today. Tags for the additional Hummers came rolling in today!

With everything that has been going on in my life the last week I completely missed this thread. Now I am catching up and I can't believe that my name was picked AND I actually got the pole position!!

 

I learned to drive my son's hummer so I think you other drivers should be sure to wear dust masks! :ph34r:

 

Vroom Vroom!!

 

Thanks for the fun Gary! I need a smile. :D

Fueled and ready to go! Blue Hummer #19 Has been repaired and will be entering the race. Inventor of K.I.T.T. has been given back his gimmicks and gadgets and can play with them while he's in the slammer. He will be released from his cell block on December 1st. one hour after the race has finished.

WOW! I am so excited for this race. Thanks again to our gracious host for setting this all up!

 

Of course, any hummer that starts from here will need some decent traction since we got more snow yesterday :mad:

 

Spring started a few days ago??? Yeah right.......

I cannot wait to see where my Hummer #22 goes and whose Hummer chooses to start the race from Pécs, Hungary. If it gets here on time, it can come to Poland with me! And that reminds me of a new category for the competition: Most countries visited!
