Topic: New people here with questions about car, theme, blah blah blah.
My wife and I are planning on doing the rocky mountain breakdown this year and have a few questions.
Car: We don't actually have a truly terrible car, but we do have the "worst car in the history of the world". Would anybody except for Journalists, Youtubers, internet fanboys, Jeremy Clarkson, and the Lambo crowd be offended by a 2003 SC430?
Navigation: The car is still using the original DVD navigation disc that was made in 2002 and is basically guessing at this point (it can not find our 50 year old house). Since the SC430 was almost exclusively purchased by older men trading in their mid life crisis Corvette, we wanted to pay tribute to those brave men and only use the built in Nav system and not ask for directions or use something that actually works. Is this a survivable decision (we know it's not a good decision)?
Route: Looks like the route from Flagstaff to Moab will cross through the Diné (Navajo) reservation. I used to teach there at Navajo Mountain High School. It happens to be one of the most remote schools in the continental US. It's only about a 100 mile detour (80 of which is a 40 mile road that dead ends into the school) and I would like to swing by. Are we able to make our own route so I can stop by my old stomping ground? Though it would be incredible I do not recommend making it an official stop. Once you get onto the road headed to the mountain there is no stores of any kind, it's very curvy, on the edge of a canyon with minimal guard rails and has a hill that's about a mile long with a 30 percent grade, but the views are simply spectacular.
Route 2: Looks like the official route will probably take us through Blanding Utah. I hope there is a stop there as well since the San Juan School Board based there fired me the same week I was given an award by the Navajo Nation. Both the firing and the award was for the same reason. Long story, but it is hilarious.
Theme: We are big time supporters of the American Heart Association's Go Red campaign (wife is cardiologist). We are thinking of doing a Go Red theme. We plan on wearing all red and we want to put a pair of CPR manikins in the back seats with faces of the organizers. We will also be giving out some Go Red swag and teaching anybody who wants to learn compression only CPR. I am sure somebody will want to break the ribs of their favorite simulated organizer while learning a life saving skill. Is this a reasonable theme? We do not want to do too much to the car itself as we want to keep using it after the rally.
Theme 2: Anybody know where to get some head shots of the organizers so we can tape them to the manikins?
Thanks for your time all.
