While we're waiting I'll report that right now it's about 62F (climbing a degree or so every ten minutes), wind is 0, Station Pressure is 25.78" and DA is 5289'.

Thanks, Dean.  I've got a guess as to why it doesn't work sometimes.  For some reason the input signal to the wi-fi jetpack isn't too strong today.  When all I'm doing with the laptop is sending audio it's good enough, but if I try to look at other sites or stuff that uses the available bandwidth -- the system fails.  I listened just now and it is working.  I'm going to send you a PM in a minute.  Thanks for the report.

It's just before 11AM and we're still not racing - as you may have noticed.  Soon, maybe -- but Alan Rice was just called down to the pits to deliver something to Cook -- so that means it'll be at least 20 minutes before we could run.  It'll be well longer than that. . . rolleyes

Speaking of Alan, he'll be using the CB more today to make announcements of times and speeds, and that's a good thing -- the audio on that radio is way clearer than on the business FM.

Guiness is behind in its historical datum line. . .

Craig Breedlove, who has managed to crash more times than any other world record holder and come out of EVERY tumble unscathed, is still the champion crash king.

His 675MPH run that resulted in the world's longest skid mark and world's fastest u-turn (on his side) on the Nevada's Black Rock Desert will never be forgotten by the guy in the pick-up truck that he narrowly missed. . . .

This is very same car the Steve Fossett later bought, refurbished, but died before testing the config. His widow, Peggy, is still trying to sell the car and still wants way toooo much for it.

No, the Danny Thompson crew and car are not in town for the event.

The spectator vehicles are getting to the viewing area now and the driver is being belted in the Studebaker as I type.  We expect to have a run soon - safety and course stewards are in place.
