We have never done a rally before. Is there a good web site, book, cd, etc that talks about how this type of rally and some comon tricks. For example, I found one site for a rally that showed the directions given for each leg and what was the correct action for a rally that had been completed a couple years ago. We indend to just have fun and enyou the rally, but it would be nice to have some idea of what to expect.

Marvin,

This isn't a TSD (time, speed , distance event like you describe).

This is more like (Tony and Scott are going to cringe when they read this) a legal verison of Smokey and the Bandit with Cannonball (the original) combined.

The sequence that you choose to do the checkpoints in, the routes you take between them, the amount of tourism you employ during the event is all up to you (or agreed upon by the group you find yourself with on any given day).

This is not as structured as a TSD, more fun and footloose, keeping evertyhing legal...

Hope that helps!
Not sure which of the fleet will be employed in 2014...
