    As a judge at NM States I don't have the same things to post on as competitors do, but I do have my own adventures with it and thought this would be a fun way to begin my side of the story from a tragic/comedic stand point. People familiar with the situation would appreciate it more, but as it stands I will post a more thorough traveling staff report.

    From the bits of story that I heard Simba, my guesses are C, A, and C. It certainly sounded like quite the adventure.

    My guesses are C, D, D.

    I know the epic road trip there, but I am sure the trip home was just as fun.

    BTW, how was Nebraska? :lol:

    Thanks for the excellent work last weekend Simba! I hope Utah is just as much fun.

    Lucky for you that you already know the way there... :rolleyes:

    OK - here we go:

    1. 591 is each way - not there and back, correct? (I know it is - so yes, that's correct) - so a TOTAL number of miles is..............D.

    2. I think the screw-up (navigation dude!) was made in..................B. (that would be a missed turn)

    3. Need more information. Is this 8:45 AM Mountain Standard Time or Mountain Daylight Time? Did you switch your clocks back before you left and jotted down the time, or not? I'm going with not (since I didn't either) and say...............B, 9:45 PM giving you an hour for stops. If it was any later either A) y'all screwed up again or B) you drive WAY too slow!!

    SO good to see you again! Have a great Utah States this weekend. (and say HI to Andrea and crew for me)

    So yeah.. the correct answers were D, B, D!!

    I don't really think that it was possible. I was falling asleep driving into Salt Lake after having been in the car for 15 1/2 hours... for a trip that should have taken 9 to 11 hours max!! It stopped being funny by about hour 13 :/ Nebraska was looking all too much a possibility!

    Still need to make a detailed report.

    To be continued...!

    OMG EPIC FAIL Simba! This was by far the most entertaining report yet! :)

    Somebody has to tell Simba when he gets behind the wheel to drive anywhere there are not signs that say:
    "Simba and Forrest Turn HERE" maybe we should post some next time.

    On a side note:
    The best comment of the entire weekend was by Alec N. the NM Masters State Champion!
