Come along as we rally with the Gazelles in Morocco (Part 2)
Another part of the rally is what's called the [UNKNOWN], which is a humanitarian instructor that follows the rally through the desert and visits Various villages along the way.
[SOUND] This year at [UNKNOWN]
and we've had the opportunity to come and visit here.
It touches your heart when you see the population here.
As for me, especially, the people, the doctors that come and work here.
The chemists that come and work here and the dentists that come and work here who are passionate about their work and they do it with such generosity that it's extraordinary.
It's day five the car's been taking a beating we lost a lot of kilometres in a wind that we tried to navigate through but as part of the rally you know you are reading on map built a long time ago.
We're all having fun taking care of one another which is most important and we are excited o have three American teams in the top four.
It's truly a testament to how hard we train in America, and how much the rally means to us.
I think the thing we've got from this rally is every day it's
The new challenge is the new learning experience, we kind of after day we'll be okay tomorrow strategy will be this.
And sometime that strategy is fit bad day.
And so you have to be pretty flexible, willing to learn everyday and not give up the spirit because even on a bad, day it's been really fun and a great journey, and.
We are having an amazing time, lot of laughter we, I mean, you don't have to laugh at yourself, because this is crazy.
One of the things we were told was you are never as lost as you think you are but I have to say yesterday I think we were more lost than we realised.
Sometimes the obstacle that you have is just the decision that you gonna make right?
You know there's a road over here but you know it's gonna whined around so you're gonna burn kilometer, but there's a hill that go straight up this way.
So it's the decision between to do I take the easy road.
I know that I'm gonna save my vehicle or do I take this the hard way go straight up but maybe I might mess up my vehicle.
And we did that once and came up to the top and there was like this giant kind of mine dug out that you couldn't see from the bottom and had I not seen it we would have just been straight down probably 50 feet.
So there's stuff like that, we think well, we could have died today.
Go go go go go go.
You encounter a lot of what we call camel block, so the only way to get through it is to put one wheel up on the camel grass and just kinda bash your way through it so you're just going And if you let off at the wrong point, you're just gonna sink right into it and that's the scary thing because you can stand up to the hood of the truck and look out in and all you see is like two kilometers of camel breathe and you think.
How am I [LAUGH] Gonna get through that.
Like the chances of me getting stuck or just.
So extraordinarily high, but if you wanna go straight you gotta go through it.
So this the Defender right now because I went over some ruts that I didn't see way too fast and now the hazards won't turn off.
So I guess this it, we'll have to pull the fuse.
Sadly their suspension is shot.
So Emmy's gonna try and help them fix that.
And while she does that I'm gonna take this opportunity to plot some checkpoints.
First, we are given These roadmaps or these road books every day that have latitude, longitude points.
That'll be one checkpoint, then I'll do the same with a second checkpoint.
Then I will connect the two and I will determine what degree I'm going in and how many kilometers I need to go in.
So you take your heading and you figure out okay we're gonna go 24 degrees for 16 kilometers.
Within those 16 kilometres after that heading you could encounter a mountain, or a set of dunes you have to decide I'm I going to try to go over those things or am I going to try to navigate around those things.
And if I navigate around those things how I'm I going to get back to my heading.
So it's all about making intense strategic decisions.
And you really have no idea how it's gonna turn out.
We know three cross American girls.
So they're separating the American team.
I don't think they're doing it for anyone else.
But they're definitely separating the American team because they think we're all following each other.
The thing is is we're all going to the same checkpoint, we've all left around the same time off the starting line, and we all have the same direction
It's a joke, what a joke.
