RE: Robert Young fakes run across America
The van was definitely putzing along impeding traffic an hour ago. There's a hatch in the back where he walks behind the moving van to get in to change shirts and I presume for nutrition and drinks. While I stopped and talked to him and Laz for 5 minutes or so, the van was stopped right in the lane of traffic on Rt. 40. Now, granted, we are pretty much in the middle of nowhere, but the speed limit is 55 mph and vehicles had to safely pull around into oncoming traffic to get by. No one seemed bothered by this arrangement.

He said they mainly track him by driving ahead and waiting for him but also at times hide guys on the side so it's not predictable.

This made me spit out my coffee. I love how ridiculous this whole thing is. They get a team of guys to go down there and watch him, but they don't even watch him, instead they would rather drive ahead and wait? Priceless. When driving slowly is too much work over just sitting, you can't make this stuff up.[/quote]

I'm guessing you have neither participated-in, nor organised the logistics for a multi-day event on open roads.

You cannot have a caravan of vehicles putzing along the highway impeding traffic, it is both less safe and elevates tensions with the {impatient} motorists and local authorities.

It is much safer to simply drive to a vantage point ahead of the runner - wait for them to pass and move to the end of your line of sight, then rinse and repeat.[/quote]
