We are stoked to welcome the fabulous sister duo that is Allison and Elizabeth Williams of Team Get Lost in today’s Team Tuesday!
Allison: Olympia, WA / Seattle, WA
Elizabeth: Olympia, WA / Portland, OR
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.
