This was my second year running with Team Beef Montana/ The Montana Running Ranchers and the fourth year the team has been around. There is a bit of a history with the two vans pranking each other and this year was no different. Mike, one of the co-captains, picked up the vans and was under a strict truce to not do anything to the girls van until we were all together, but he weakened under pressure from his wife and violated the truce.
Friday morning we woke up to silly string all over the van and discovered our water bottles in our cooler were covered in condoms. Boys van 1 Apparently Mike's wife had accused him of being weak (not the word she used) and he had bought a 36 pack of condoms and had violated the truce before he even left home!
We Googled and schemed about what we could do to the boys, but weren't coming up with much that we could do easily and not disable their van. We ended up putting shaving cream and maxi pads all over their van at exchange 6. I got style points for the cowboy hats. I also have to confess that Evie and I were in such a hurry to get it done and get back to the exchange before it was noticed we were gone that I started putting the shaving cream on the girls van.
We also put a large fake spider in the clipboard we were passing back and forth to keep track of our leg times. That got Mike pretty good in the middle of the night.
Van 1 may have listened to a certain 80s hair band a bit much
No wonder it made a bad noise when we put it back into the park, the wheels thought we were reversing!
Since we didn't ride down as girls and boys vans the boys left some of their water bottles in our van and we may have put some shampoo in one and wrote on another.

He said he pulled us over because our taillights weren't on. Billie Jo asked if they worked now, he checked, yes they did, and off we went!
