One Day to Blast Off – Praire Dog

| October 3, 2008 7:06 am

We will be leaving soon for Santa Clarita, the starting location of the Furnace Creek 508.  I got up this morning and the first thing to check was the weather forecast.  There is a slight improvement because the forecast for rain at the start is down from 70% to below 50%.   The storm is suppose to be towards the north but that is the initial direction of the route, inland but up towards Death Valley as shown here.

Last night I updated our time station goals.  We are hoping to take about 1.5 hours off of our 2007 time, which would be quite a challenge.  I show 45 minutes better than the time I took to reach Furnace Creek last year when I had to stop to recovery.  The other 45 minutes are spread around.  Here are the new forecasts.  Click on the table below view enlarged.
