Team Moss Boss

(In the elevator on the way up to their room)

“Is everything squared away?” Kyle asked.

“It’ll be fine,” Hank replied. “Gonna have a lot of paperwork waiting for me at home.”

“I hate to ask, but do I still have a job?”

Hank gave him a puzzled look. “Of course. Why wouldn’t you?”

“Well, if you’re getting a divorce, doesn’t she get half of your business?”

“Ah. No. There was a prenup. I was just making sure to cross all the t’s and dot all the i’s.”

The door slid open, and they walked past a disheveled guest in a robe who was waiting for the elevator.

“Wow, she actually signed one?” Kyle asked incredulously. “I mean, weren’t you kind of… you know… poor, when you were younger?”

“Mostly. But I there was a trust account for me that was to be released when my grandmother died. It wasn’t a huge windfall, but enough to get myself up and running. I wanted to make sure that stayed with me.” Hank shrugged. “I guess that’s why I got married so young, too. There was this loophole dealing with the account and timing. I had to get the prenup signed and the asset secured before she died if I wanted to ensure it wasn’t in play if something should happen. I know it sounds kind of sick, but my trust attorney insisted on it at the time.”

“Weird, but it makes sense I guess.” Kyle swiped the key card over the security pad and opened the door to their room. He paused for a moment. “You sure you’re okay? Do you want to find a bar or something?”

“For once, I have to say that’s the last thing I need. I just want to sleep and get this dumpster fire of a night over with.”


#222

On a side note, I’d like to apologize for a couple typos/inaccuracies over the past few days. While I have been tracking your actual position and mileage, I may have forgotten to update fuel totals and/or passed cities on a couple occasions. I have had a super long week at work, and have been updating this shortly before bed, when I have been absolutely exhausted.

Team Bio
Day 2, 6 - 8PM

Day Two, 8PM to 10PM

We overstayed our departure at Beef n Bird by a lot. One beer became a couple of beers and there was a game on the telly and then I woke up from a micro-sleep. Not a good sign. I got Andrew’s attention away from the game and explained the situation…

P: “That list got somewhere good to stay? Here in Sudbury I mean.”

A: “Yeah, looks like… The Moonlight Inn and Suites! Kyle recommended the Moonlight Inn and Suites”

P: “Good. Make a reservation because there’s no way we’re pushing on any further tonight”

A: “Good plan. I need all the rest I can get since I’m driving tomorrow”

P: “Don’t remind me…”

So we said goodbye to the Beef n Bird with another round of beers then headed to the Moonlight Inn and Suites. Along the way we stopped at the Pioneer Energy fuel station to top off the tank then we parked up for the night at the Inn. After a long, hot shower I went to bed, where I fell fast asleep, as did Andrew, who was in the hot seat for tomorrow’s action.

Here’s hoping his enthusiasm doesn’t see us stuck in a snowdrift somewhere!

TO BE CONTINUED

Distance covered: 1 mile
Overall distance: 765 miles
Fuel state: Full tank
Overall fuel used: 3 Tanks
Morale: +2 (+11) So glad we’re off the road and warm in bed! :sunglasses:

Team Mushroom Cloud
Day 2, 18:00-20:00

What little they saw of the Grundy Lake Provincial park made the team consider stopping for a quick look, but Toni insisted that they keep moving. She thought there was minimal benefit and a lot of potential loss in such a move. Without the falling snow, even in the poorer light, Bill had more confidence in what he could do behind the wheel.
Toni: So, what do you think, Bill?
Bill: About?
Toni: How far we’ll go before we stop? You’re normally the one itching for a break, but you don’t seem to be interested at all.
Bill: Aunt Toni, you’ve taught me a few things on our road-trips, and maybe I’m starting to come around to your way of thinking. I figure that we’ll drive an hour or so past the checkpoint. Some teams will stop there, and we’ll have more of a lead over them.
Wookiee: That only works to our advantage if we get back on the road at the same time as they do, which will depend on how far ahead we are now.
Toni: Okay then. Wookiee, what does the map tell us?
Wookiee: Let’ see… out of Sudbury, on the 55, then right to the 17… which is still the Trans-Canada.

20:00-22:00

They reached Sudbury around about 8 O’clock, and did what you do at a checkpoint. A little difficulty starting the time bomb, Bill assumed it was from the long run, then sitting for a few minutes. Leaving Sudbury behind, travelling west down the 55, an estimate of their fuel range was made.
Wookiee: So, I reckon, we’ve got enough to get to Webbwood. If we’re short, I’ll push.
Toni: You’ll both push! Hell, even I’ll have to get out.
Bill: We’ve got the Jerry in the back…have a little bit of faith in him.
Toni: You trust him?
Bill: No. I told you to. You found him, you kept him.
Wookiee gave Bill a quick jab in the arm.
It was exactly at that moment the car stuttered, just for a second.
Wookiee: Oi! Drive properly!
Bill: Not me, the car.
Toni: Ha! Been waiting for that.
Bill: For what?
Toni: It’s a symptom. You guy’s bought a bomb, I’ve been trying to work out what’s still broken.
Bill: Well? What is it?
Toni: Nothing serious. Just keep driving. Make sure you let me know if anything else feels wrong.

They made it past Webbwood, and into Massey. It was here that Bill decided to call it a night. The Mohawk just past the Shell looked like the perfect place.
Bill: Looks like we’re alone.
Wookiee: (looking up from his phone) Doesn’t mean it’ll stay that way. Says here there’s another car not far behind us. :smirk:
Bill: Don’t do anything.
Wookiee: Like?
Bill: Sticky tape over their fuel filler door, baby oil on the windscreen, removing indicator globes, or whatever else you were thinking. Just don’t.

V6 Vandals - Day 2, 4-6p - “Dinner Time!”


After their meal, the Vandals piled back into the Truckling and took off down the road, their mighty front-wheel-drive dragging them along.

“Well, that was worth it.” Amy said, smiling. “Sure, it puts us a little behind schedule, but we got food and we had some time outside of the Truckling, so we’re better off for it.”

Cody and Jake just nodded, fighting the “I’ve had food so now I’m sleepy” nod-offs. It didn’t help that it was closing in on night again, and they’d spent all day in their little shoe-box of a truck.

A little after 8:00, Amy asked Luke, “Mind finding a hotel or something? I know that you’re okay for a while more, but…”

“Not a problem. I need a bit of time out of the car anyway. The constant bumps keep knocking my cameras out of alignment, and it gets to be annoying to keep having to manually re-center them. Especially because it’s hard to do that without having a static frame of reference.” Luke said.

“Ah, kinda like crossing your eyes, right?” Cody asked.

“Similar. Equally disorienting, and it’s certainly a driving hazard. It doesn’t take long to recalibrate, but… As I said, stationary frame of reference.” Luke replied.

“So, how were you supposed to handle combat? We know military vehicles aren’t known for a comfortable smooth ride, and…” Jake started, only for Luke to cut him off.

“First and foremost, I’m a prototype that had the funding cut at the last moment. Second, this issue of optical realignment is something that’s started happening within the last three years. I suspect a servo has gotten weak, or there’s some slack in one of the control lines. Third, I can still shoot straight without having binary vision. It’s not necessary for me to have physical depth perception when I have a built-in range-finder, after all, but it does give me a greater field of view. So I could technically put up with it and keep going, but you tell me, do you want to spend the next 48 hours sitting there in that seat?”

“Not really. I see your point.” Jake said.

The Vandals cruised into Iron Bridge a little after 8 PM, and stopped at the Village Inn. The truck was shut down, and the four of them walked in, rented rooms, and proceeded to head to bed. Or in Luke’s case, to update social media and annoy everyone with the fact that this time, he had his own bloody room, and that window was going to be open.


Luke’s Social Media Update

“So, we’ve made it quite a bit further than we were last night. Called an early stop because we had tired teammates and a lot of ground to cover coming up, so it made no sense to push on. Especially now that I’ve checked some of the other teams’ media pages and found plenty were having accidents or near-accidents. We’re still in it for now, and while we have problems of our own, I think we can deal with them easily enough.”

Team Letto RP Attempt:
Welcome to the French River.

Lord: Ah nice! We finally made it to the French River.

Coconut: Yeah, I’m Surprised The Citta Lasted as long as it did with the Balance Shaft Issue, Along with the fact it’s only a Small City Truck doing a Long haul trip on the Highway most of the time.

Lord: Yep, but at least we made it here to the French River , Good thing we Called around ahead of time to find a Lodge that can Check us in Late at night for a overnight Stay, now let’s get going to our Accommodations at Loons Landing & Check in, Early to Bed Early to Rise, Hopefully the River Condition is good enough so we can get a bit of fishing in before we leave, Ice or otherwise. I’m not sure what’s it’s like here in the Winter, I Usually come in the Summer with Family to go Fishing for a Week around Canada Day. Good Times.

Coconut: Yeah, This is where you Caught your 1st Big Fish Correct?

Lord: Yep, Back in 2013 During the Trip with Family I Caught a Walleye & 2 Pike, the Walleye was the only one we got from the Trip, I’d Show you a Pic but it’s being Held Ransom by Photobucket.

Coconut: Yeah, I heard about that, What a bunch of BS, Hopefully the Company goes under cause of it.

Lord: I Agree, Anyway let’s go & Check in so we Can get a Rest, if we can get settled in & Sleeping by 11 we can get up at around 5-7 to have breakfast & Check Conditions for some Fishing before hitting the road to Sudbury around 10.

Coconut: Sounds good to me, let’s go.

RL version,
8-10pm between Las Vegas NV, and Flagstaff AZ

Headlights start dimming when engine rpm’s exceed 5000, (note downshifting to 3rd to climb hills at speed).

Later at cruise lights get much brighter, battery light illuminates, brake caution light illuminates, and air bag light starts flashing. 5 minutes later everything returns to normal.

Suspected bad voltage regulator in alternator. Stopped in Flagstaff at 11 for the night.

-5 FTG in the first 2 hours.

TEAM OUTRIDERS

20:00

Zach: So, what was it like?

Blake: What was what like?

Zach: Don’t give me that shit! You tell me you were a fighter pilot 5 years before I was born and you don’t expect me to ask about it?

Blake: It was a long time ago. Besides, it wasn’t all that intense.

Zach: Shooting down four targets isn’t intense.

Blake: Most of the time I was far away. I’m talking miles. We were mostly over the Red Sea and more often than not, they’d flee once they picked up our targeting radar.

Zach: Didn’t one shoot at you though?

Blake: Yeah, he got the drop on us, I was the unlucky one to have a missile on me. Thankfully it was easy enough to avoid. I fired off flares which drew the missile away.

Zach: Then you were engaged in a dogfight?

Blake: ACM. Aerial Combat Maneuvers. And yes. He made the mistake of assuming the missile would get me and went after my wing man. I put a Sidewinder up his ass. He was close enough that I could see him eject. I don’t know if he survived.

Zach: That must have been exciting.

Blake: Oh yeah, almost getting killed, real thrilling. Personally I preferred taking them on from longer range. By the time they know we’re coming it’s all over.

Zach: Doesn’t seem very brave.

Blake: You don’t win a war by dying for your country, you win it by making the enemy die for theirs. If I could I would’ve used a Phoenix on every one of them.

Zach: What’s a Phoenix?

Blake: Long range air to air missile. You could be a hundred miles away and shoot those bastards down.

Zach: Why didn’t you?

Blake: Because the long range air combat everyone predicted turned out not to be the case. Short to medium range missiles ended up being more practical for combat.

Zach: Hm.

Blake: Honestly, I found it more fun harassing the Soviets before the Gulf War. Nothing like sneaking up on someone and him not realizing you’re there until you’re above him flying upside down giving him the finger.

Marc: Hold up, look over there!

Luigi: Isn’t that the car those commies were driving?

Blake: Looks like they’re stopped for the night.

Marc: Stay quiet.

(Marc turns off the lights and slowly pulls the Enforcer into the parking lot making sure not to hit his brakes to give himself away. He pulls next to the Communitasia and shuts the car off.)

Marc: Stay in the car, I’ll only be a minute.

Blake: What’s he doing?

Luigi: And why did he take the keys?

Marc: (gets back in the car) Okay, let’s go.

Blake: What did you do?

Marc: Nothing dangerous I assure you.

Zach: You keyed their car didn’t you?

Marc: Sort of…

Luigi: What do you mean sort of?

Marc: Well, if they’ve got the poor taste to dress up as Hitler, then maybe I feel it’s fair to carve a penis into their paint job.

Blake: Are you serious?

Marc: Of course I am.

Luigi: You really think it’s a good idea to start a feud?

Marc: Will, given that I wanted to wrap a tire iron around Hitler’s fucking head, I think I held back considerably!

Zach: Great. All that aside, I think we should look for a place to stay for the night.

Marc: Well, it’s not gonna be there, that’s for damn sure.


#231

Had the charging system checked in the morning, everything checked good, bought a OBDII scanguage to monitor the voltage and continued on. The alternator was almost completely done when I got home, worked to about 2000 rpm but cruise at 75 is 3000 rpm so the last 30 miles or so were on the battery.

Team Bio
Day 2, 8 - 10PM

Day Three, Sudbury, The Moonlight Inn and Suites, Six o’clock in the morning

The alarm sounded, right on time, at 5AM so Andrew and I got up, got ready then hit the common room for a serve of eggs, bacon and buttered toast. While I paid for our room, Andrew checked over our Bogliq then loaded up our bags so that we could hit the road by 6AM…

P: “It’s still damn cold… At least the snow isn’t falling”

A: “Yeah. Hopefully this weather will stay nice so we can pick up the pace!”

P: “Don’t forget that the roads will still be slippery. Keep an eye out for black ice and avoid shady spots or puddles”

A: “Don’t fret, I’ll take it easy this time… I’d hate to have to listen to you moan all the way home if I crashed us out!!!”

P: “Haha, very funny. Just be careful and I won’t have to haunt your grandkids, OK!?!”

A: “Got it. Let’s ride!!!”

Andrew then fired the Bogliq into life and we left The Moonlight Inn and Suites on our way to Itasca State Park in Minnesota.

Team Mushroom Cloud

Bill was so proud of himself when he woke at 5:00 exactly. He’d gotten revenge. After the others had gone to sleep, he’d taken Wookiee’s phone and set an alarm to go off every hour. Why did it feel so early? And why didn’t he hear the alarm?
He checked his phone, 5:01. He checked his watch…2:00AM!!!

A few hours later, at the real 5:00, Team Mushroom Cloud began preparation for departure.
Bill: I guess it’s Wookiee’s turn behind the wheel.
Wookiee: I get the wheel, I get the radio, and as a bonus, I get this…(pulls out a slightly crumpled Captain’s Hat).
Toni: We’ve got another half an hour, I say we find breakfast. Mmmm… Canadian Bacon.

5:53 AM
The car started easily enough, but it didn’t want to stay started. This caused Wookiee no end of grief, and THAT made Bill happy.

Night before the morning after….several sherrys have been consumed……

Gran (slurry): Yes, before your grandfather I has a myriad of lovers who kept me satisfied. Then I met your grandfather and, by all that is holy, he was the most generous lover I ever met…….

Mopey: Graaaaan…….

Spanners: Mrs E….that’s far too much information!

Gran:……and I’m telling you know he was built like a………zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…oh George, you’re so rampant……zzzzzzz………

Mopey: I’m going to need therapy after this!

Spanners: Finish your beer and we’ll turn in….hopefully the nightmares will be mercifully kind to us!


Next morning

Spanners: GOOD MORNING!

Gran: Urrrgh…….

Mopey: MORNING GRAN! DID YOU HAVE A GOOD SLEEP?

Gran: Urrrrrrgh………

Spanners: SO WE HAVE A NICE GREASY FRY UP AND THEN HIT THE ROAD?

Gran: I’ll just have some paracetamol and a bottle of water.

Spanners: George, go find me egg and bacon on toast, make sure the egg is runny and the bacon is greasy! Bucket of tea too please.

Gran: Excuse me…… dashes into toilet ……. OH GOD………OH JESUS…….

Mopey quickly goes looking for breakfast and Spanners does his morning routine of checking the car over

V6 Vandals - Day 2 10p-Midnight - “Sleepy-time”


All was quiet at the Village Inn at Iron Bridge, up until 6 AM. A quiet, though persistent alarm went off, followed by Amy Storm getting out of bed. A few minutes later, there was a loud thud and a groan, followed by another thud and a “Really, Mom? You had to tip me off the couch?”

“We don’t have time for your shenanigans. We’re the first up in the Inn here. Now get your asses dressed and get moving. Go get breakfast once you’re cleaned up and ready to go.”

Luke opened his door just as Amy walked up, letting an arctic chill blow through the hallway.

“What the fuck is wrong with you!? You had the window open!” Amy grumbled, hurrying down the hall to get to breakfast in a hurry. Luke followed after closing the door, then said, “They had the air conditioning locked down, so I did the only thing I could to keep cool. I was kinda busy last night.”

With it being just 6:12 AM, the four members of Team V6 Vandals were ready for breakfast. Well, three were having breakfast, one was busy checking for more information.

(Yeah, I know, it bleeds a little into the next time period, but it makes more sense for me to do this than to wait. After all, it’s known we’re not leaving until 7, so we’re having morning troubles.)
