Slim.........are you listening?  I'm thinking SAWYER AFB in the UP!  Convenient to Chicago, Milwaukee, Twin Cities.........???  I think it has a 2.5 mile runway............was used for B52s.............it even has housing for rent.

Uhn, mmm, I think the racing would be great at Sawyer International Airport, dodging American and Delta and the private aircraft that fly in and out of there.  In fact -- I tell you what, tomorrow morning, when Nancy and I fly out of Sawyer (bound for SLC and eventually Wendover) -- I'll see if I can smuggle a working GPS onto the aircraft to see if I can learn just how fast it goes on the 12,300' runway.  How's that for a quick survey?
