How deep is that water?  Is that typical for this time of the year?

  Hi, folks:
I'm involved in a road trip to visit family in Indiana.
I-80 in Western Nebraska is undergoing a major rebuild.
All overburden down to the bare dirt is being removed; so you have 20 to 25 mile
stretches of one way, 2 lane traffic.
Sometimes separated by a New Jersey barricade; others, just a row of candles and a bright tape.
  Speed limits can vary; 65 most common, sometimes 55.
Typically, there is a citizen who is  extra cautious, and runs at 10 under.
The point of these is to tell those coming from the East, to check the website, and leave
early enough to deal with the mess.
There are also a few problem areas in Wyoming.
Good Luck!

Over the past couple of years there have been a few attempts to change the radio announcing at SpeedWeek and WF.  There's a change again for 2015 -- and I like to think that it'll be for the better - nah, for the best.  the following comments are for the FM radio broadcast only - they DO NOT address what's happening on the CB.

First of all - there'll be two announcers working at any time, and there are going to be two pairs of announcers.  One team is the Gillette Bros (I think they're bros, aren't they) that you're probably familiar with from EM.  And the other team is -- ready for this - the other team will be "chaired" by long-time veteran been-there-forever announcer and announcer-in-chief for 2015, Ron Christensen.  You ALL know his voice.  His compatriot/puppet/helper will be - will be - - me.  Yup - I've been given the opportunity to be an official announcer.  I've sat in for Ron a bunch of times, I've been the only announcer some times, I've often wandered into the radio trailer to chat and shoot the sh*t with Ron (on the air) -- and now it's official -- I'll be paired with him.

The result should be great -- in that at least those three will give good information.  Then there'll be my contribution. :?

In other SpeedWeek news -- I'm still hoping that landracing.com will be able to stream the audio from the event.  SCTA will for sure be doing it -- but I'm hoping that I'll be offered the opportunity to bring the sounds to even more folks around the world.  It'll be the same audio as SCTA will be streaming, but I figure with two sources we'll have more listeners.  some folks will know that SCTA is streaming, some will know lr.com, and the aggregate audience should be bigger than either one, alone, could supply.  Good for everyone.  If, that is, the SCTA approves my request.  Don't pester them with pleading, please -- let them do their work.  At this stage - a little more than amonth before SW -- they've got lotsa stuff to do. :cheers:

This sounds like a great plan, Jon. BTW, was Ron Christiansen ever on AFN years ago? His name is familiar.

AFN  -- ?    Sorry that I don't know what that acronym means, Neil.  Probably something to do with chocolate milkshakes, right?  Or perhaps it's a breed of Scandinavian hummingbirds?  Once I figure it out I'll ask Ron.  Or maybe I'll know anyway.

AFN= "American Forces Network" i.e, "AFN Frankfurt", "AFN Saigon", etc.
