OK, unit, more help here my pumpkin sconed friend...

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=unit



OK, now I'm confused, Are you calling him a ape or a dick? :roll:

I choose, my preferred usage "defies description".....so yeah , I guess like an apes dick.... nno, in all seriousness it is a term off admiration..."you're not like the rest".....there.

In the meantime , here is a picture. Feel free to use it in whatever format or venue you like, it is of a photographer at our favorite place, he is enjoying himself doing what I won't be able to do and that is shoot the Subaru with like minded folk for an uninterupted week.......

Few understand what I'm trying to do but they vastly outnumber those who understand why...................

I was wondering if youse guys were paying attention to the sticky-osity of the thread.  Now that I know it's still a valid concern - to be in front of everyone so you can continue to rack up scores of extra points -- please note that I've re-stickied the thing.

Happy now?

no,not happy Jon.......were I going to Bonneville  in a few days I would be happy, so right now I'm just filled with my.usual sense of idiotic glee that I haven't been hit by a meteorite, run down by a herd of wilderbeast or died from a coke machine falling on top of me.Make sure you take a couple of the Spirit of Sunshine t-shirts with you to either auction,give away or just clean up mess with,and assign the funds to the upkeep of this pillar of landspeed society.

Well, unh, Nancy's been wearing them and they might not fit the average racer quite right.  Okay, they'll look pretty goofy unless you're shaped in some similar manner.  But really - we sold a good number of the excess during the winter fund raising times, so maybe the one that I've been wearing regularly will be the only one I can find.  Thanks for the shirts.

We'll miss you folks for sure.  You always lend a bit of serenity and sobriety to the scene at Bonneville. :?

I'm a little worried , last I spoke to Don he was wiring his bike, or at least talking about it...I know it's 8200miles from here to Rainagain but I can't help smelling electrical problems :evil:

Would that be yellow plastic you smell Goggs ?
