“Come in Acadia 1, This is Acadia 2″!
This was our speak during the length of our relay. These were our call signs for walkie talkies and tweets to each of our sister cars up and down the coast of Northern California! And if you can’t tell from the picture below, we had a pretty good time last weekend!
We started off the weekend with dinner at Buca Di Beppo, sponsored by GMC, helping us get our carb load. The 3 representatives who joined us couldn’t have been more gracious as we ate and chatted about the race. They even sent us on our way with a fun care package, complete with ice packs and bandaids, both of which came in handy during the race.
We got a quick tour of the vehicle, seeing all the amazing amenities. These cars have plugs, not just a plug from the adapter, but real 2 pronged plugs. This came in super handy when I forgot my car adapter plug for my cell phone, but had my 2 prong plug. Yay for Acadia 1!
Then on Saturday morning, it was time to decorate for the race. We had fun with our washable markers, can you tell?! We definitely got noticed in our sparkly Acadia cars. Go Team!
Thanks again, GMC, for giving us the go we needed to get through The Relay!
