Hi Rachana

What type of racing does your BF do at the Glen, one of my Fav tracks

Enjoy your trip out to the Salt as it is a very special place

Rachana;

Your BF's first name wouldn't be "Bill" would it?

His name is Joe and he has a Porsche that he takes on the track. While I've driven the Glen once myself, he's the gearhead that can talk for 8 billion years about the insides of cars and going fast. He's going to love you guys.

Question - I can't find the list I had made a couple of months ago of stuff to bring. I remember I had: hats, sunscreen, radio, binoculars, camera, and a ton of trash bags/tape for the rental car. We're camping on (the free part of) the salt flats so I'm bringing a tent, sleeping bags, and towels to shower at the truck stop. There's nothing else imperative, right?
Thank you Smiley

... we're from near New Paltz...
Hmm... the club I was with some years ago probably left the local populace with a bad taste- Central New York Mini-Pullers were booked for an event there, and I was the only competitor who showed up! angry The promoter, however, trreated me very nicely- for merely unloading and firing up my blown-alky hemi, he handed me $100 for gas money. cool Not surprisingly, the club was never invited back again...

Ah yes, water - thank you for the reminder. Do you think the Truck Stop (or anywhere) would mind if I took containers to their bathroom and fill them up there?

Oh no, I can't imagine no one showing up for a track event! I didn't even realize that was a possibility. I hope everyone shows up for SpeedWeek, lol.

Ha! I just noticed one of the emoticons I can add to this message is smiley faces bumping beers. I've never seen that - how hysterical. Clearly you guys are awesome.  cheers

A big broad brimmed hat and long sleeved white shirt, if you are going to be there for the week you will get toasted and from to bottom up too

The salt crystals are like little mirrors and reflect the sun back up at you

I would not drink the tap water at the truck stop. You will see when you get there. Just buy a case from Smiths Market or the other truck stop in West Wendover.

I have found that the reflection off of white shirts can cause sunburns on adjacent skin.

Under Armor shirts seem to work well at keeping me cool, even in black.

After all of the back and forth last spring -- you will come find Nancy and me, right?  We'll be there in two more days -- in eastern Montana right now.  C U on the salt.

If that was aimed at me, you know I avoid you like the plague, Nancy not so much.  rolleyes

Also if you would drive over 50 mph you would cut your travel time considerable.  grin

We will be there Thursday afternoon, see you then, hey!, Don

SSS - Of course we're going to visit you and Nancy!  If it weren't for you, we wouldn't be coming out there at all.  In fact, I think the way I'm going to break the surprise to my bf is to print out your email, the one where you described how much fun the event is and that convinced me to do all this, and hand it to my bf to read.

After all that... My mom had to be admitted to the ICU yesterday. I'm canceling the trip and staying with her. Thank you SSS and everyone else for your kindness and help! Hopefully we'll come out another year. Have fun and be well Smiley

Major bummer.  I hope she's okay.  Did you tell your boyfriend yet about what he missed?

Lady, your attitude is perfect.

You made a great choice to come to the Salt and an even better one to stay with Mom.

The Salt will always be here.

Another time will be fine.
