Update on the private rentals:  LEAVE 'EM WHERE THEY ARE.  THEY MUST BE CHECKED OUT BEFORE TAKEN.

Other than that, we saw yet another car stuck in the mud today.  Geez, folks, don't try it.  Unh, it's rough on the salt so far - so dont try driving really fast and don't try finding a smoother road - there ain't none yet.

The speed limit is 45 on the road from Land's End to the Truckstop. Suggestion:  Cruise control can save $$ - tickets are expensive bu plentiful.  Speaking of that, stop signs are FULL STOP signs, and we've already noticed the Wendover cops stopping lotsa cars for speeding in town.  Slow down.

4.30 Wednesday afternoon and it's raining and thundering here in town.  Radar shows it's on the way here - this is just the beginning.  Stay tuned.  I don't know what's going on at the salt.

How much longer will this continue???.
This whole hit and miss thing with SW really breaks my heart.
I spend hours on the forum checking out all that's going on, the builds, the tech stuff
and how all you guys live for this sport. Driving thousands of miles to get to Bonneville
only to have go back home due to conditions. I feel for every one of you. I pray that you get
a break this year.
I'll never whine about my situation again. Guys, I'm pulling for each and every one of you.
You need to be rewarded for that good time you all came for. cheers

5.30 and the sun is out, SCTA people are in the pool/hot tub, and the sun is out.

Now the fun stuff:  Did I tell you that I had to get a new little 'puter to stream the audio?  The old one went missing last year after WoS.  This morning I walked into Carquest and Mike said "Go look back there and see if that's what you're looking for."  Sure enough - there it was.  Great/crap.  So - I've got a one year old Toshiba laptop for sale.  Will use the newer one - probly get enough for the old one to make returning the new one too much bother.  I've got it set up - screw it, I'll use it.  Still -- after 11 months- the old one was right there after all. PooP!

Good lord, Jon - does Nancy have to pin your mittens to your snow suit sleeves before you go tobogganing?  rolleyes

The replacement microphone for the one you left at home will also be at CARQUEST on Friday, by the end of the day.  Shipped UPS.

I checked tracking too -- Friday.  I see on the job list that I've gotta go get the announce/timing slip trailer tomorrow - I think I'll immediately stash stuff in it to prevent unauthorised losing. shocked

Did the salt get very wet?  Is it just an inconvenience, or is going to be an issue?

I haven't gone out there yet.  I know there was lotsa wind - toilets and tents and stuff got blown over, but no info on the water yet.

IMPORTANT:  My camera has opted to take a vacation, so I will be kinda hamstrung using Nancy's camera to get pics.  If anyone feels like adding pics here -- go right ahead.  Racers start arriving today and there'll be lotsa stuff to see - and I get to spend some time setting up the announce trailer so might be preoccupied.  Take and post pics, please.

Here's the latest, 'cuz Nancy and I jut got off the salt and know that it rained and blew - for about 15 minutes, and duped dozens or maybe even hundreds of raindrops on us.  Other than sending people scurrying for shelter - no big deal.  It was about 6PM anyway - with the clouds it was kinda darkening.

Mariani 'liner, Speed Demon, Challenger 2, Target 550, Buckeye (sorry - is this the Bullet or what - I forget) electric 'liner (I hear they've got a primo feed system set up for crew.  I hope radio announcers get to sample the goodies.  We're talking a major league smoker is what I hear).  The Cohn-Juciewcz Monza, the little #360 VW Fuel Altered car, Danny Burrows and the Blowfish (I don't know who/which is more fun - the ultra cool car or Danny), Roy Creel's V4 #53, a kneeler bike or two, I think I saw, and the Indian motorcycle contingent right smack in the middle of the beginning of the pits.

I got the phone fixed - it seems that keeping the iPhone 6 in a pocket when entering the hot tub isnot a good idea.  The new one - i7 - is rated, I'm told (based on my adventure last night) for 30 minutes at one meter deep.  I wuz only in the water about 10 seconds when I had my "Oh, Subaru!" moment.








I spent some time this afternoon updating stuff in the streaming laptop and going into the Meridix site's landracing.com page and things look like they oughta work.  I'll probably do some testing tomorrow - will letcha know when I try it so you can offer comments.  Later -

Are 9 miles enough for a Burkland appearance or is 11 miles still his minimum?
