The sole goal of Team Alavanche is to have fun this year.  Well, have fun and eat tacos with a hundred of my favorite people plus a couple we just tolerate like that creepy uncle nobody can stop inviting over for thanksgiving.

we've got multiple knockoff go-pros, iphone cameras and a willingness to do whatever it takes to make sure everyone has fun

Pro tip:

 

If you're in South Carolina and you try to take a detour and you find a dirt road, don't trust it in a lowered car. I should have turned around when I saw the speed limit sign that said "20 MAXIMUM SAFE speed...almost shook the car apart

Good news is it cleaned under the hood great for concours. Bad news is that replacing it is out. I'm not sure why it decided to divorce itself from the car.

In reply to Stampie :

Can't you just find any old Infiniti radiator at a junkyard in the way and swap it in the hotel parking lot? Worked for me with my G35. Just need sheet metal screws or rivets.

What happens when your chicken for the taco bar leaks in your cooler? 

 

You rinse it in the hot tub in your suite.
