"dumont dunes" Discussed on The Smoking Tire

"Okay, let's ready to start this day, I had to take the biggest dump of like the whole treadle. And so I dug a hole hole in that sand Dumont dunes. And I took a very satisfying poop for you. I just covered it up. And I'm like, I hope somebody just drives right through them. So proud of both. Your story and how I felt about that whole place. I'm like, I'm just wanna take shit on you and leave. I like that. We were like how was the DB eleven in your? They worked on it. They were working on this mission. It wasn't perfect yet. And then, like, how's this rally this bit? I was gonna cut her, but I had to shit anyway. The. On on board. Listen to this. Hopefully she doesn't make the retention the photos of this article which we will put. Yeah. It's on the drive. It's really good. And I did a video on it, too. And I was just me with a gopro and I didn't know what the hell I was doing. And I was it was sort of like like guerilla style shooting with, like Blair witch project production values, but it was, but it was very until the plot of Blair, witch project, actually, honestly, like it was a really, really difficult ten days but, but finished it and I'm super proud of the fact that I finished it, and it was great because I got a an amazing story out of it. I think it has helped future contestants like competitors. They've literally come up to me at the end of other of rallies. And we're like I watched your video before I did this, and it gave me like a it helped prepare me for what I was in for, because I had no idea, and it's, it's really hard. It's not just like oh, like you know, flowery yoga retreat for ladies romping around, this is the middle of no. Yeah. And you have what map and a compass. I mean I never took orienteering like that's it. Never took that those lessons. I know that there are classes taught which means it's hard that lasts soda shot. That's up on the top left. That was our last day in Glamis that the sort of it all ends in Glamis. You're finally your full Mad Max. Yeah. Yeah. You look like a Java person aja, right? And there were fifty mile an hour gusts in Glamis. I mean it was white out and you're just like, oh my God like drive through this. That's very beautiful. Who's the paint was, it was Dumont dunes. That was it was it was a very cathartic experience. It was it, it taught you a lot about yourself and not just as a driver. But just like like how you react to things that kind of knee jerk reaction it if you, if you took the time to really pay attention, it really kind of it, really educated you on like you. So it was really. It was a really cool event event. Yeah. It's really awesome. An EMMY hall. You guys know EMMY hall, right? Bonneville during the two hundred mile an hour Jetta sell. Awesome. So EMMY and her navigator Rebecca Donigi, they won, they face sort of they tied for first last year. And so this year, they get to come back. They've, they've competed in all three years is their fourth year. They're coming back. And I think I think it's official, but they're doing it in. That's awesome. That's fucking great. Wow. I hope I'm not just modifying it now they might be putting skids on it. Maybe tires probably this gives in tires. But yeah, I think it's going to be kick ass. Like I hope I didn't just blow the thing anyway. This is the show cool don't say anyone. That happens in at the end of the news. Oh, I don't know. Well, I mean I, I knew about it. But so yeah, I don't know if that's proud of it. Cool. That's, that's just gave up the ending of game of her own, don't blow it up. If you're listening to this show. Listen there. Hopefully, I don't get in trouble before we get out of here, because we don't have any audience questions. I got one question someone on read it earlier was talking about women in automotive journalism, and or the lack thereof. And.

"And I was like, oh my gosh, I'm like this is so stressful. Like this is terrible and I had driven dunes like for an hour and a half. And I was like, I was not like not basically, let's say not confident in the dunes. So we I get to drive off a cliff pretty you could, you know, who wants to Endo into, you know, which is I like that sounds horrible. So we get to do monsoon. It's like a cat litter box from fucking Hal. It's horrible. So we so we get there. And of course like within like a minute, I get stuck and her first, the first thing out of her mouth is, oh, you got stuck. And I'm like, oh, that's such a shitty team thing to say. Like you don't say that to someone I'd never said, you've got us loss. Like so that was the beginning. That was the beginning of something of, of a really terrible evening. The son was super low, like then all of a sudden, the dunes just flatten like you can't see anything and dunes are d- scare. You don't know what's over them. You don't. And if I hadn't aired down properly, like I was just so flustered from this whole day of like trying to play catch up. And so finally, we found ourselves in this kind of bowl of, like surrounded by mountains, and I'm like, we're not in the right place. It is now getting dark. We do not have light like a light bar like, we are, we are bone stock. Like I am not driving. She's like, haven't you ever driven on a country road and the dark? And I'm like, oh, your bitch, like this is so thing like you're crazy. And so we just there was yelling and screaming and I'm not a yeller like I was just like, oh my God. I can't believe this. And now we're stuck here in the dark, and she went wandered wandered off. And like her headlamp was just like all I saw was out, and I was like, okay I've got to used. The Satphone I've got like call and just let them know that we're not dead. So I called and like they came out and everybody I mean, we'd been crying for like a half an hour because there was so much yelling and like ruined the whole thing for her and I was like, oh my God, I feel terrible and I'm a horrible person. And, and she was like, I've, you just let me drive like I could get us out of this. And, and so finally, there's the head judge Chrissy Beavis, who's like X games stuff co-driver for strana done. I mean, this woman is just so like hardcore awesome. She basically asked the question. She's like, okay, which way north and she is my navigators. It was like, oh, it's that way. And Chris, he's like, no, it's not honest. It was the best thing 'cause level the playing field for me. And I was like see you don't know what you're doing. And it's okay like this should have hard and no one expects you to be perfect. And so they gave us two options. They said, well, we can pull you out of here, but you're done. Competition. You're done three of seven or you can spend the night out here by yourselves because everybody else was at levels at camp and then just start in the morning and try again in the morning and I was like the last thing I want to do is spend the night out here, although myself in the fucking dark in sand dunes with this lady, like, oh my God. Okay. So we did it. We actually buried the hatchet, and we kind of made up and, and everything, everything ended up being okay. But man like we ended up sleeping. I slept in the back seat of a Jeep, like I felt like I had passed out frat frat guy like, oh it was awful. This is. I be saying slept in the. Beck's. Naci. By looking at you. And I said, you weren't you absolutely were accurate. But. Yeah. I'm not proud of it. But yeah, I was so I will say this is a very unladylike thing to say, but you know what? I don't care that, so that morning we got up, and we were like, okay, let's ready to start this day, I had to take the biggest dump of like the whole treadle. And so I dug a hole hole in that sand Dumont dunes. And I took a very satisfying poop for you. I just covered it up. And I'm like, I hope somebody just drives right through them. So proud of both. Your.

"Got the grabby est breaks ever. And then really aggressive idle creep like a health that g you're puffing traffic. Let's because that's because it has so much power. Matthew is just trying to go. Yes. Over in Japan breath, so fucking. It's freezing bread also. Yeah. Joe is the the fried the best thing I hadn't Tuscany all the shit, we had, and it was everything was amazing. The best thing was basic pizza dough. Yeah. Caught into little strips, like about the size of this fried in a very hot sunflower oil. And then tossed in the really good olive oil and salt when they Friday puff up like kind of like pillows. Ooh. And then you just grab a nice piece of pursuit, and just shove it in the pillow in poverty, their mouth, and it was gonna sounds good. But if you come over and bake bread for me, and I'll bet you that. Yeah. But what is the rebel rally? Okay. So the rebel rally is it's a ten day event. Seven of those days are competition, one of those ten days is sort of days zero, so it's sort of like a trial day, but it's not that's not scored for points. It's an off road rally that you are not allowed to use GPS force. So it is a map, and compass, navigation rally local version of the gazelle rally that happens like it's an hour. If my understanding of I've never done the Zales, but I think the bills is a little bit different. This one is really about going and collecting checkpoints. And you, you use a map and a compass to navigate they take your cell phone away for like seven days. Beacon have. Yeah. You have a stat phone, which I definitely used because. Well, it's a big story, but I can tell you the story. So, so. Yeah, so it say it's all off road. It starts up in like Tahoe and sort of cuts down the sort of the side of, of Nevada, and then cuts in through California, and you're basically just going the backside like so passes through like to Walney, and then you go through like the gold, like old gold mine areas and through Dumont dunes and. Yes, I have a really shitty story about Dumont dunes. So I'll say this. I didn't I didn't know like my guy asked me to do this for the drive and he didn't really know what it was. And I'm like, dude, you know, it's like ten fucking days like you'd better pay me a lot of money to do this. And I started talking to Emily Miller, who is the woman who runs it, Emily. Miller's this world like world famous like offroad racing who used to who used to drive for rod hall, and like I mean, she's really I mean amazing in her own right. And she really wanted there to be a rally in the, you know, in the US, and it just happens to be that this rally is off is for women, and so she really, I met her, and she and I connected and she's like a really want you to do this, and, you know, Mike was sort of, was vacillating, and, like, well, gosh ten days, like I don't know if it's a long time, and I was like, look, I'm willing to do this, because I think it'd be a great experience. But you need a teammate. He needs someone to, to, to navigate with you. And, and so there was this other woman who lost her driving partner. And so she put us together, and I remember FaceTime, timing her, and I was like, okay, well, my first question for was like, are you super competitive? Live choose like I don't really think so. And I, I should have read into it, then but, you know, she has four young kids below the age of, like, you know, ten so, she's definitely like the type A personality. And I knew that she would be the Boston. I'm sorry. I don't know. I can't read. Yeah. Well, when you have kids when you're like you're basically, like Boston people around your whole life, and they're just like small people. I figured okay? She'll be the mom in the car. Sit down sit down sit down. No turn here, turning north more throw more throttle, basically did I say, and honestly, like the first couple of days. We're good. And then the third day like the wheels is fucking came off, like we got lost. And we went off in one direction. We lost a couple of hours and she was a skilled driver. But not.
