Last Call: Rally Finland is the best location in the WRC

When you think of rally, Finland is probably one of the first places you imagine. Whether it be during the classic group B era or modern-day, it has always been the best in my opinion. There’s something about the scenery that makes the cars flying through the air seem so majestic. Although, one could argue that cars flying hundreds of feet isn’t just awesome no matter where it is and you wouldn’t be wrong.

If you aren’t really a rally type of person it’s really an interesting motorsport to get in to. They make it look so easy (as most drivers do) but when you see the inside the car POV you really get a feel of how crazy it is. Going full throttle blindly around a 45-degree corner with your steering input based solely off the notes of your co-driver just sounds insane. But that’s the level of trust and synergy that you need to win. Rally Finland is easily at the top of my list of places to travel in the future and it should definitely be on yours if it isn’t already.

    Realized that my daughter had enough doll campers and RVs to make her own trailer park. Didn’t have a Camaro to put up on blocks, but a C4 Vette is close enough.

      The teal RV flips open to reveal a portable stripper pole?

        The LOL Dolls are pretty sketchy. I think it is supposed to be a stand for a larger Barbie sized doll. That’s why there is a ring at the top.

    Oy vey.

    This is the Chevron in the resort town of Mendocino. The kind of town that has a boutique sock store. I told myself to gas up in Ukiah, a big ol’ market town out in farm country, where premium was $3.50/gallon. Somewhere along the whole-lotta-nothin’ between Ukiah and the coast I realized I had forgotten, and the trip odometer switched over to telling me I had 0.8 gallons left (clever motorcycle.) I prolly coulda made Fort Bragg, where it was $3.70, but I was tired, and didn’t think Mendocino Chevron was this rapacious.

      So, half a gallon then?

      Fuel here apparently got below a dollar (Pacific peso that is, not greenback) last week, after I had filled up at $1.079 which seemed cheap after $1.30-1.70. Never thought I’d see below a dollar again in my lifetime, even if I technically haven’t.

      Holy carp. That is a crazy price. Wen I filled up at my local station this past weekend I paid $1.99 a gallon.
