Okay, welcome -- and to both CarlGustav (good strong name!) and ScottW. - - you didn't enter your location(s) in the appropriate blank on the registration form when you joined the Forum.  Yes, ScottW, you tell us in your post -- but by putting the location in the blank in your profile we'll be able to see your area each time you post.  You, too, CG -- let us know so maybe we can help you by being nearby or something.  Thanks -- and again, welcome to the forum.

To everyone:  Yes, Bob and I are trying to make filling out the "location" blank a mandatory item for registration, but we haven't yet figured out how to futz with the basic forum software to make that happen.  We're trying - and in the meantime I'll keep harping on those that don't have it there (including "old timers" as I see them, like you, DCarr511 :evil:).

Hello, My name is John Ervin.
 I'm from N.E. Oklahoma and have been following this board for quite a while now. I'm a long time drag racer but have a longtime interest and fascination with Landspeed Racing. I lived in the San Diego, Ca. for a number of years and attended events at El Mirage and Muroc and thought about participating but my drag racing seemed to satisfy the itch. I went to Bonneville for the first time in 2010 and like many of you the hook was set. So out with the drags and hello Bonneville!
I'm now in the process of purchasing a "D" Street Roadster (which by the way I found on this site,  thank you) and plan to get started on this new adventure. I'm really new to this form of racing and have a lot to learn but I'm looking forward to getting started. Hope to get to know many of you at the races.
Thank You and Godspeed, John

Hey -- this guy is worth watching.  I see he's from that town in Oklahoma where Phillips 66 gas has it's headquarters, so obviously -- he gets fuel for free and will probably bring it for all of us if we treat him well.  Be aware! :-D

Okay, seriously, John -- hello and welcome to the Forum.  I'm glad you've bit the bullet and registered, finally, so now you can more fully take part in the goofiness that we like to make folks think - is land speed racing.  We have a great time with it, so don't go upsetting our cart with the truth, okay?  Enjoy what you can from here, and as you've no doubt seen many times -- don't be afraid to ask any question.  Yes, we might hassle you a bit, but then -- in turn, so were we when we started asking questions.  Just don't talk about your dream to build a propeller driven car, okay? :evil:  Keep that one a secret from us.  You'll unfortunately probably someday find out why I say this. . .

Thanks for the welcome. I wish the free fuel thing was true it sure would make it more affordable to tow all the way to Bonneville!! Looking forward to being part of this craziness.

John, if you get up north stop by the LSR Farm for a beer.  Welcome to the addiction, meetings held regularly in Aug, Sept and sometimes Oct. 
Street Roadster, wow, right into Stan's frying pan

Thanks for the invite, if we're that way we'd love to take you up on that. Yeah I know I sure could have picked an easier class as far as setting records go, but I've always been partial to roadsters. My current drag car is an altered roadster so we will see, at the very least we'll hopefully have some fun

We have a lot of racers from Canada.  If post just where you are from there are racers who might be your neighbor already racing.   Welcome.
