we arrive at the hotel (more of that later) and check in and we head over to the expo/ceremonial start. we pitch in and help get the arch constructed.
i meet ken block again, and whip out some medium sized posters i had printed out of him from rally maine, and he autographs them for me, along with a poster from that crazy snowboarding on a rally car video. he’s a nice guy and he even chatted with me for a few minutes.
