First, you sign up for our once-every-so-often (read – when we have time) newsletter. This will get you up to speed with the basics for the rally.
Since this is the inaugural year, we have limited slots for this year, so there will come a point where we will have to not allow any other teams on the rally. Check out the sign-up page for more information. Don’t delay.
Conservatively, 1 month.
But, in reality, your car will break down and you’ll need to spend a few nights sleeping in a pasture in rural Nebraska while it’s fixed.
But, there will be a proposed route prior to the rally with meeting points along the way. Don’t let this be your guide though. Buy some state maps and explore wherever you want.
Depends on your driving and the road conditions. This isn’t a walk in the park, there will be times when your car will break down, decaying USA infrastructure, and other unforeseen obstacles.
If you’re looking for a safe vacation, stop reading this and go to an all inclusive resort.
We recommend a car prior to 1996. This is only to make things interesting and to (hopefully) have it break down once or twice.
But, if you do want to rally in your own car, we’ll be levying a penalty charge that will go towards the charity.
Space will be limited, so keep belongings to a minimum. Spare tires, a jack, duct tape, and other tools to fix your car are a good idea.
Use our basic fundraising spreadsheet (xls) to keep track.
Invite them along for the trip.

Do not wait until the last minute to decide if you are doing this rally. It will take far longer than you anticipate to secure a team, a car, and the supplies before hand.
