Timeline of our rally team

To get people up to speed on our team and mission, here is a brief history of our rally team:

September 9, 2007: Whilst fighting a hangover with greasy breakfast food at Kona Kitchen, Jason delights the gang with a riveting legend of a crazy car race in Europe where you have to drive, like, a BILLION miles in a car that costs less than, like, a gyro or something. I'm pretty sure none of us actually believe him.

September 11, 2007: Grant has to inform the gang that for once Jason's crazy tale actually exists and begins Googling state-side versions. First hit is the 24 Hours of LeMons race, which Grant is generally unimpressed with except for the $1000 grand prize paid out in nickels. Next hit is the BABE Rally.

December 19, 2007: Grant and Kyle confirmed for BABE Rally and begin scouring craigslist for the most hilarious vehicles under $200.

January, 2008: Vikram and Jason confirmed for BABE Rally. After spreading the word that we are in the market for a beater car, Brian and Meghan of Live Girls! Theater offer their non-operational 1987 Civic that has been sitting in their parking spot for 2 years.

February 11, 2008: Team is officially registered as "I Must Be Naked" (our temporary name)

April 2, 2008: We steal the rally car in a daring mid-day heist and somehow manage to push it to Grant's place with flat tires, fused brake pads, and no power anything.

April 10, 2008: After realizing that we are the worst team-name creators of ALL TIME, we decide to ask for team name suggestions from our friends.

April 12, 2008: After a week of work, Grant and Jason manage to get the car "running" by using a combination of quick-witted strategy, keen problem solving ability, and highly questionable technique.

April 18, 2008: We begin a single elimination team-naming tournament, ultimately resulting in a controversial and extremely exciting championship round which produces our awesome team name, There Will Be Bacon.

May 3, 2008: Further refinements to the operational ability of the car inspire us to test it out on the open road. Using BRG as a stunt-double stand-in for Jason (who couldn't make it), we stretched the rally car out on 250-mile day trip to the creepy Bavarian-themed town of Leavenworth. Important discoveries include:

  • Fully-loaded baconmobile maxes out at about 50mph uphill.
  • Not having a radio really sucks.
  • Vikram can sleep in any position
  • Drinking and playing baseball in the mountains is really fun.
The take-away message for the trip, considering the success of the car not vaporizing in a cataclysmic fountain of blood, oil, and Extreme Blazin' Buffalo Wing Pringles, is "WE DIDN'T DIE AND HELL YEAH WE ARE GOING TO MAKE IT WOOO!"

I'm sure my teammates will flesh this out a little more, but hopefully this timeline will help give this blog a context!
