The Outlaw Alien Cowboy Tour 2019 YeeeHaaaw
The Outlaw Alien Cowboy Tour 2019 is in the planning stages at this time.
Plans are to enter 'Merica on August 9(ish), 2019 and exit on or about the 17th(ish) of August. Passports or travel visas are required documentation
The Canadian border summer wall of wheat, canola and cheese will be easy to navigate across, the winter wall of ice/snow/sleet will have long since melted.
There will be a daily roadkill count and wildlife rating system as per our usual custom.
Skunks are rated higher this year albeit with a sliding scale for freshness.
Fresh, 10 points.
Night before, 8 points.
Completely flattened but with a lingering odour 5 points.
Barely there black and white evidence, 2 points.
Raccoons, 5 points.
Gophers 2 points.
All bambi's fresh or otherwise are 8 points and Moose are 12 points.
1/10,000s of point shall be accessed for all bug kills and with butterflys and grasshoppers receiving 5/10,000's each.
All bird strikes regardless of size shall be awarded 25 points.
New this year 2 extra points will be allotted to all roadkill regardless of type that is able to crawl to a Dept of Highways applied lane marking of any color or type.
Live animal sightings of bears, 100 points, elk, 50 points, Jackalopes 1000 points, Antelope 10 points, prairie dogs 1 point a piece (your count number will be believed, no audit will be required)
1 point will be awarded for every mile of gravel ridden thru construction zones. Points are in miles not number of zones and all riders are responsible for keeping their tally intact.
25 points awarded to the rider with the photo of the cutest flag girl (decided by committee)
12.5 points awarded to the rider with the photo of the flag person most with the fewest teeth (decided by committee)
extra 5 points if these two categories can be combined and shot in one photo!!
All tire gators larger than 6" inches square shall be awarded 1 point as well. The annual water tower count shall be conducted again as well. All water towers in towns within eyesight of the route are eligible to be counted. Towers must be within eyesight of the main route, water towers sighted on side trips thru hinterlands for fuel or public restroom or a suitable well hidden ditch will not count.
As usual all riders are responsible for their own daily count and round trip tally. The winner be chosen at random.
Also as per usual, bring your own roll of 4-6 ply toilet paper or extra holed socks as you may require for pit stops at non fuel stops.
Also as usual room assignments are not final, it is up to the individual to make sure that their accommodation each night has been assigned by the quartermaster.
Gas buddy assignments are set on day one and should be loosely adhered too, credit card only minimum 2 to a pump unless the group has an odd number. If there is an odd number then the buddy system shall rotate daily.
No food restrictions this year, if you can stomach it you can eat it. Vegetables are not a required meal. Bacon is required at least once per day.
