[DPRG] Long Haul Way Points

We plan to be there with at least one and probably two entries.

The table below confirms my fear of the water.  I don't mind a poor
performance on our first try (my bot has only been off the bench and
outdoors once and I'll be writing code right up to contest time), but a
crash into the water could set me back a bit!
