Lori and I are back from Primm. Stanford won! CMU's two bots came in 2nd and 3rd place, the Gray team also finished, and TerraMax took its sweet time but eventually finished. And unlike last year, the eighteen other entries actually put on a good show.

I took pictures, Lori took pictures and other people took pictures.

You can see a Google maps display of the race course at the CMU web site, and the Google Earth discussion forum has at least one route overlay.

Hey John (and Lori)! I've been looking forward to your photos -- they're great. Thanks.

Thanks, Will! I'm almost sad that there won't be a third Grand Challenge in some other beautiful desert location next year.
