'We've crossed the line, gone all in, paid up, out of the gate committed. "The Frocks" (ever changing team name) have officially entered the Rebelle Rally. That's the "all in" bit.
"Uh-Oh" is the slight freak out about what's to learn in 4 months, in-between kids, work and running households on opposite sides of the world. Frances and I will meet up in October to race and navigate the Nevada Desert having driven together once. We'll take turns navigating and driving so we both need to up-skill in each discipline.
Up-skill = learn from scratch.
Lucky for us two awesome 4x4 companies in New Zealand and the US have stepped up to give the ladies a hand. Our first experience was tearing down Muriwai beach with the legendary Colin Burden from Trackwise NZ. We got a taste of sand antics and recovery. Stateside the boys at OverlandExperts have offered a helping hand.
Katy has signed her kids up for orienteering hoping they can teach her how to navigate.
Frances took a unique approach and headed to Korea for a lecture on roundabout test driving.
