#146 – Team Ponderosa

Erin and Sara met through the Rebelle teammate database, and have since done many training weekends together! They first tried out the partnership at the Advanced Dune driving course with Nena from Barlow Adventures. Right off the bat, Erin’s exceptional driving skills made the weekend thrilling and an excellent start to building trust as Sara worked to pick lines and leverage her map reading and navigation skills in the Dunes. We also learned that we both love dogs, horses, hiking, and books, along with our goals for the race being very much aligned – it’s become a great partnership!

Fun fact about yourself
Not only am I a speed nut, but I also love interior design and architecture – I used to work in the design industry before making the decision to help run the family real estate business. So, even though they’re at odds with each other, my two favorite things are pretty spaces and dirty cars!!

Fun fact about yourself
My geeky obsession is trip planning, and not just simple day trips: overland adventures of more than 4000 miles that optimize fun driving roads, whether in a Miata or Lexus GX, great hikes in beautiful national parks, and visiting family. I have even been overland to Timbuktu and back on an amazing adventure with my grandmother (who was in her 80s!) to meet Toureg traders via camels on the Sahara.
