Hi guys.

As there are only a few more days 'til Oregon Trail, I thought I'd add my own Rally Team thread to the Mix.

Say Hello to TeamD.

Yes, I know, TeamD has been around a while but until this weekend the entire focus of the gang has been on TSD events. Now, after yeas of gathering TSD trophies, it's time to dip my toe into the world of Stage. So here's some info on the effort.

Driver: Jeff McMillen, novice at Stage but old hand at TSD.

Co-Driver (for this event): Kathryn Hansen. The expert in the car.

Car: 1987 Subaru RX. Car number 247. I bought it off Ron Sorem last year and have spent some months getting it up to current spec. It was campaigned in SCCA rally in the early 90's but nothing recent. It was born with 115hp and in class I can't really do much to improve that. Plus, with age some of the horsepowers have probably leaked out. It does have JVAB Boingers (tm) all around so that's a plus. And Dave Clark did the cage (and recent updates) so there's wuite a bit of Rally Anarchy in the bones of the slow moving beast.

Class: PGT. Why not? It's not like it will be competitive in any class with me behind the wheel so I might as well keep it as I found it.

Website: http://www.teamd.org. Most of the info is on our (and I say Our as TeamD is many people, not just this car) TSD efforts including a number of Alcan 5000 entries. I added a new blog entry today on the car and will attempt to keep things lively over the OTR weekend and through the other events of the year. I also intend to do some twittering if there's reception.

If you find yourself down in Oregon this weekend, come say HI!

I didn't say Hi at Oregon, but I did see your car on the trailer on my way to work Monday.
Grahn, Burress, and I live relatively close to you (I'm guessing).
Get in touch if you want to hang out some time.

Yeah, Adam, let's do that.

You probably saw the car up on the trailer on 80th. I live a bit north of there but getting the trailer through the wiggly streets and traffic circles is a challenge so it sat there for a day or two until I unloaded the car and the trailer was claimed by it's owner.

I've been out of the country for a couple of weeks (work) but am back for two weeks and would love to get together. I'll give you a ring soon.
