Second Stage Stop

We've reached the 1169 kilometer mark. Ethan and Mike switched off driving, taking over from Kelly and Fiona the first day. We encountered no other solar cars on the road, so our standing has not changed, but we did encounter a few bumps in the road. From roughly 11 AM - 4 PM, we were under the cloud of a brush fire; we also burst a tire and had to change part of our suspension. We're still keeping an eye on our battery life. Overall though, we're pretty happy with where we are so far and look forward to our third day.
