! 48*F ! what the hell is that  :-o

Which direction does the track run?

Bill
The runway sits at about 348 degrees.  (about 12 dgrees west of north). Military does not mark their runway directions like public runways, so the best educated guess is about 12 degrees.

I noticed that people were complaining about the cool nights.

Well folks, here in the county there will be plenty of dense air and dense people.

The people were great last year. I needed a 12 volt lighter plug in for the radios and Caribou NAPA delivered it to the race course on Friday. It cost $3.50. No charge for the delivery.

I don't think Bill has the concept of what's "comfortable" well in hand.  Bill, when it's in the mid-50s and sunny -- that's when folks up there and also in Michigan's Upper Peninsula -- will be out in the yard, wearing shorts and a cutoff t-shirt, working and just barely breaking a sweat.  Go past the college campus and there'll be guys playing frisbee wearing only shorts and shoes, and the girls will be lying on towels, wearing skimpy bathing suits, and grabbing some rays.

I imagine you'd look like an out-of-towner up there, walking around looking at the locals -- while wearing your parka and boots and thick gloves.  It's all in what you're used to, you know. . .

Reminds me of the time I went to watch the  NHRA Winternationals in L.A. If I remmember right that is in early February. Anyway....I got quite the look from a couple wearing downfilled parka's on the beach when I was going for a wee little dip in the Ocean.

Made great time getting to Loring. 10-1/2 hours from Long Island. Wind blowing hard from the west on the race course when we got there. Bob and crew has a lot of set up work done. Spoke to Charles on the road. He is about 4 hours behind us. A lot of campers set up already on the site. Weather is excellent save the wind. This is going to be a great meet.
