OCTOBER 7 – 16, 2021

Team Tuesday: Allison & Elizabeth

We are stoked to welcome the fabulous sister duo that is Allison and Elizabeth Williams of Team Get Lost in today’s Team Tuesday!

Although they’re a rookie team, both have experienced the Rebelle Rally from “the other side” – aka as media. These Pacific Northwest competitors loved covering the competition in 2019 so much they knew they had to compete together one day. And that one day happens to be this October.
 
Give a big round of applause for Team #119 and learn more about them below (and Elizabeth’s new Tacoma!)

Hometown/Current town:

Allison: Olympia, WA / Seattle, WA
Elizabeth: Olympia, WA / Portland, OR

Favorite Food:

Allison: Strawberries.
Elizabeth: Steak.

Something only your best friend knows about you:

Both: We’re sisters, so we know almost everything about each other – not sure if that’s going to be an asset or a curse!

Favorite place ever:

Allison: The North Cascades – I can’t get enough of climbing, backcountry skiing, hiking, and driving through these craggy mountains.
Elizabeth: Iceland, I keep going back to visit.

Why did you pick the vehicle you’re competing in?

Allison: Elizabeth picked the truck, but I’m doing the interior decorating. Our themes is “extra pencils and snack stashes.”
Elizabeth: I knew I wanted a truck to take off-road but wasn’t sure what to get. After a lot of test drives, I settled on a 2021 Toyota Tacoma. I never knew I was a truck person until now!

Why the Rebelle?

Allison: I also got to observe the Rebelle in 2019, as a journalist. By the end of the first day Elizabeth and I were making plans to compete. As a huge map nerd, I was immediately drawn to the navigation challenge—but I’m hedging my compass skills by naming us Team Get Lost.
Elizabeth: I was introduced to the Rebelle Rally by Emme and Rebecca the year they competed with the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. I was fortunate enough to come along as support that year and was so impressed by everyone I met that I knew someday I would have to compete. I wanted to be one of the people who inspired others to do something completely different!

Any shout-outs you’d like to make while you have our attention?

Both: Of course all of our sponsors: Beaverton Toyota, Ironman 4×4, Leitner Designs, Cascade Designs, and Adventure Imports—but above and beyond that is a huge thank you to our parents who have facilitated in making this adventure a reality and all our friends who are helping us along the way.
