After 7 competition days, a dozen counties, 2 states and 4 basecamps, the 2016 Rebelle Rally has come to an end. The final stop for the Rally was the popular Glamis sand dunes in Imperial County, California. The girls on the Rally have learned so much, grown as navigators and drivers in the last week and made some lasting friendships. Rally founder Emily Miller has said “I created a rally that I wanted run.” The terrain has been ever changing from rocky hills, sand washes and rough dirt whoops. The final challenge was to navigate the spectacular dunes. With sand hills looming tall around them, navigation is challenging. Your compass had to be accurate to know which direction to head to the checkpoint. Tires had to be at the right pressure to drive through the thick sand of the rolling dunes.

Skill level is critical here. Some of the ladies elected to take Emily’s training courses on how to drive these dunes. Others trained in similar areas on their own. If you did get stuck there was one key piece of gear to get you out. Maxtrax. Maxtrax is a small recovery board with spikes that is placed underneath tire allowing for traction to pull the vehicle up and out of the deep sand. After all of the trials and tribulations of the week and all of the tracking data, points scoring and paperwork has been turned in, the team of Charlene Bower and Kaleigh Hotchkiss took the victory. Their team was the most consistent all week collecting 80% of the checkpoints.

Bower and Hotchkiss did not know each other prior to entering in the event. Bower held an online contest searching for a co-driver. The two did some pre-event training just weeks before the rally. Many of the ladies are sad the event has come to a close but are already discussing plans to run next years event. There will always be something special about being a part of an inaugural Rally.
