It's nice that Slim could overcome his fear of being close to the ground and layed down such a super number. Watch for him to wear his new coat as he juggles the portapotties in August.

Jon -
Jealousy is an ugly thing.  Just because you had the skill, dedication, and planning to pull off your stunning run.  I was there.  I saw it.  It was awesome!  You've thrown down the gauntlet - let's see who has the chutzpah to pick it up.

Like with Tonya's license plate - it ain't bragging if ya done it.

See you soon      Dan

I've got a photo of me leaving the line -- as the wallpaper on Nancy's side of the computer.  I'd post it if I knew how, but it shows me leaving -- and I had the foresight to position the pit bike just right.

There's me, moving away, with the rear tire centered just right over a black stripe (that somebody else had the courtesy to leave).  Now if I could use Photoshop I'd add a bit of tire smoke and have them all wondering.

Hey, it was Don's suggestion that I make that awe-inspiring run.  I will admit that I have never made a land speed run while laughing as much as I did during this one.

Maybe somebody will outdo me in '07 -- find an unoccupied class and make an even slower pass.  Todd, you could do it -- I know you've got it in your race fleet.
