Google's team blog for the Ragnar Relay Northwest Passage

July 20-21st 2012 Google's 6th year at the Ragnar Relay Northwest Passage! This is a two day, 190 mile relay race from the northern tip of Washington in Blaine, through farm country and along the coast, across Deception Pass and finishing at the southern end of Whidbey Island at Langley. This isn't your average team offsite!

Sleeping in the car, but at least I got a warm shower!

Van 1 just got back on the road to head to exchange point 24 and meet up with van 2. We got almost 3 hours of sleep back at Exchange 18, which happened to be a middle school! The gymnasium was opened up for the evening so we got a real treat of warm showers and indoor sleeping!

I guess I should mention that all of the previous major exchange points were at parks -- but they did have shower tents! That was an invigorating experience, ICE COLD water and showering in a tent in the park. Can't say I've done that before!

I slept in the van since I was the designated holder of the cell phone. I turned the ring volume all the way up and set alarms for 3am and 3:15. I can't say I slept very well, since the thought of waking up to sunny skies and a very impatient van 2 kept me a light sleeper. I woke up at 2:45, checked the cell phone and immediately van 2 called! They have 1.5 hours left of running, so we are on our way!
