On our way

We are currently on the road! Our support vehicles left right on time with weather leaving at 8:30 and scout leaving at 8:50. Continuum left 10 minutes later at 9am sharp. The starting line setup was great. Unlike WSC, all the support vehicles were already lined up in order. As the solar car came through the start line our lead vehicle was already in front ready to go. Chase pulled in behind and were off. With a police watching the turn onto the road we took off down the race route. We are now 6 miles out. More updates to come soon.

I heard about the start from our daughter Maggie Hayes (NASC 2005 and WSC 2005). She is down there to cheer on the team this weekend.

It sounds like the Dallas alumni has done a fine hosting job for the team. Of course Chuck Hutchins is on hand. Hello to Chito!

Also Maggie reports that there were many, many more Michigan people in town for the race than any of the other teams. It shows the true spirit of the event. Although it doesn't hurt that Michigan does very well in these races.

We look forward to many more blogs. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like they have the GPS so that we can follow online like we did in 2005....

But I like the Blog updates! Keep them up...we'll be watching You!

Oh, and hello to long time parent TC Lambert.

Go fast...

Bob and Maria Hayes.
