It has finally come, the big departure day! It was filled with big moments of excitement, like finding out that not only does the winning team get $10,000 but now SAAB annouced that the smokin 9-4x is part of the prize package!

Whew, now the pressure is really on! Oh, and as you will notice, each team got a color, ours is orange!

We make what we thought was going to be just a quick stop for lunch before hitting the road again. Considering that we did get the task of finding the friendliest town in America, we felt we should start getting to know people right away!
