Garanimal, there's a dude running around out here saying that he's "Gregg" -- can you beat that?  I could tell it was an impostor, though -- this fella had a pretty good sense of humor, and I know that ain't your long suit.  I mighta talked more with him and figgered out who it was -- but he had this screwy accent that made him dang near unintelligible.

I love you too, GKA cheers

Made it into Wendover about 10:45 AM and then to the salt about 11:30 AM.
Salt is MUCH better than when I was last here in 2014 for WoS. Lands Ends entry is fantastic.
The salt looks GREAT albeit still on the thin crust side and was damp is places. Temp for today was 84 and the weather for the next few days is going up to the mid 90's. Should finish drying all the damp places.
Quite a pleasant surprise of the number of cars and bikes for inspection/pit setup today. More to follow tomorrow.
Had a good time seeing old friends and meeting new ones! Looking for to meeting new friends in the next few days!

Enough babbling from me.....LOL!  grin

This is my 2nd time coming to Wendover from the Salt Lake City area. I know when I see the Tree of Life, I'm getting close to the Salt flats.

Gregg:

I will see you on the Salt. Should be there by 2:00pm. I will have one of my boys with me. I am trying to peak his interest so I can have some cheap crew labor in 2017!

Bill, I just saw that it is called the Tree of Utah and sometimes called the Tree of Life.
I originally heard it called the Tree of Life so that's what I use!

Here ya go from Wikipedia:

Arrrrgh . . . .

Gregg, do you know how many years I've been hoping to see Charles' Stude on the salt?

Between that and the Kiwi Mini team, I haven't wanted to be unemployed this bad since I walked out of Hardees when I was 16!

Well, I guess we're making a LOT of progress . . .  rolleyes

We are NOT rebuilding . . . We are reloading.

I saw his trailer going down an off ramp yesterday about 30 miles West of Cheyenne, WY. I had to double back and go talk to him. Had a good chat then and again today as he was in line for inspection. MAN he's so pumped about being here and the car is looking REAL good. Let's hope he gets a record!
Haven't seen the Mini yet!

Hopefully my pics will ease the pain a little.

They'll be in tomorrow AM - you won't miss it.  A trailer that could haul an Abrams tank with a matchbox car on it.

I'll be on the lookout for the Mini.
Look through my pics and you will see MG is represented here with an MGA running Modified Sports. It is even the same colour as your Midget. I'll get more pics of it tomorrow.
