Sumner plans to be at Speedweek.  He may be camping in his sailboat but he will be there.  I talked to him on the phone earlier this week.

Good, maybe he can tow Slim and his canoe off the salt it he looses his oar, or vice-versa if there's no wind.

Can't wait to see Sum and all those from our roadside welcoming committee last year.

I didn't think I'd ever be as excited to get on the salt as I was that first time... but appearantly I was wrong as I think I'm getting a little giddy again. One of the hundred things that will stay with me forever on that maiden trip, is my first ride thru there (from SLC to Wendover) with Sum in his truck. 
cheers

Sumner, your build is still just awesome and so much cool stuff, thanks for documenting it the way you have. 
If you were to run your liner, who would keep all the duct tape on Sparky's ride while he's pulling off the line?

And with Fred's mention of a new lady; is this not the same young lady (Kim I think it was?), that I met at WOS last year (she was all sweetheart and I can't imagine you letting her go)?
