yeah, I've done this event twice and got 2nd at regionals and 1st at state but that was only b/c i had an awesome partner.
when i was first assigned this event, i was very upset at my coach b/c i hated this event, but now that i've learned so much in it, I lOVE IT!! I just want to say to anyone who may be new to this event and are doing it next year that it's really not as complicated as it may seem at first. I found the coach's manual SOOOOOOOOO helpful and would have died without it. Once you understand everything it's really fun.

Happens to most people, people take it because they have to and end up liking it. It actually makes one quite good at navigating :P

in response to your Q karatekid44, road scholar is all about topographic and highway maps, creating profiles, and making your own map.

just wondering... where do y'all get your highway maps? when i talked to people at state, some said that they just have members on the team pick some up when they're going on road trips and stop at those restroom places that have a bunch of maps. I've tried the USGS store but i've only found topo maps not highway ones.
