As far as getting to the stages, I usually print the .PDF file and match it up with Yahoo/Google/Mapquest/<Insert Favorite Here> Maps. It is really simple to get around. The stages around Tusten are really easy to get to. Pretty much just 2 paved roads. The stages are off of that. Liberty is a little more tricky. Hopefully there'll be signage along the main roads to show where to turn.
My mini-rant: I do dislike .pdf files. Would be great to see stuff like the Sup. Regs. in a basic .HTML file with the PDF option link at the top. Kind of a pain to have to DL the whole PDF to peek at something quick when the site is slow and how Acrobat pretty much blows.
I believe the crew will get their own packet that will correspond to the published itinerary/program, making movement very easy, additionally if you choose to do the recce you will have opportunity to supplement this information. If the crew can read the itinerary/program and the maps they will have no problem. The maps used on the web site are marked up scans of colorized folding maps by a company called Jimapco and are THE best available folding maps for the area. The same company named makes a better road atlas @ a better more acurate scale in blue and white. (not Delorme style mind you) My staff (work) and I use them to cover this area and if it's not on these maps it's not there. As an aside, I translated The VT Winter TSD provided maps to the same brand and I think we had a better & more enjoyable time that night because of it.
If you need more specific information I have never found Ivan or Olga to be unresponsive, in fact they seem to have an endless supply of patience for competitors questions.
Lastly, both service areas are open to set up early according to the published docs..

You've got a great skill of constantly editing your posts. What did you do come back to these 3-4 times till you got it right and totally changed what you replied/asked? You make it impossible to answer your concerns.
Some addresses and a map layout of the town w/ the primary locations(like they had for 100AW) would be nice...It's been way too much Google-ing and MapQuest-ing than necessary...and I can't really trust the information from that being completely accurate. I'm sure all the information will be given once one reaches registration, but if you're a co-driver that tries to do your job with some sort of professionalism, you don't want to leave anything up to chance. It's important to know where everything is before the event when making a movement plan as one has to know how much time to allocate to get to different locations. It's a lot more time for everyone to do the research when just an address could be provided.
Look at the mileage on Friday afternoon, and no fuel stop! Average WRX or Evo on 34mm program needs 17 gallons!
Chicanes: Please don't put those pissy cones out again, use something more substancial. The antilag was blowning them away last year, and coming at them at high speed you'd want a military satellite to see them!

You will need to put sand in them to keep them from falling over.
The best thing for Chicanes is ROUND HAY BALES No driver want's to hit them...Because they cause damage.
What's the intervels between cars 30 seconds or a 1 minute, Over here in IRL we run 30 seconds between cars on tarmac, That way the stage is always hot and it gets done faster and the residents are happy,
