I did sample some of your state's beer though, so much for being a dry state! I even bought a Utah brewery's "Polygamy Porter" hoodie to wear...

Indeed, why stop at just one?

If you stop at just one beer in our state, you've only had 1/2 of a beer...takes at least 2 bottles to equal 1 "full" flavor beer.

Rev, where'd you find the hoodie?  We've got a buddy that has been given a t-shirt by us -- but the hooded shirt might be a nice gift for next time around.  Our purchase was made in an out-back convenience coffee shop/bakery -- but that's the ONLY place we had seen the shirts.

Speaking of your visit -- did you travel on Utah Scenic Byway 12 -- from Torrey to Bryce Canyon?  I'd expect so -- and hope so.  I think it holds hands-down the all-time greatest road status.  Simply stunning visuals.  Nancy and I have enjoyed that road about a half-dozen times -- and always try to ride it once more when we're in the neighborhood.

Thanks Roy, that is exactly wear I purchased the Hoodie, Park City Main Street, at the Wasatch Brewery. They have a good one for the ladies too.

Slim...Highway 12? Wow! We certainly did drive it, one of the best drives in the world I'd say.

The Devils Backbone section of Highway 12 is pretty cool, it's right on the ridge (see photo below). There is an old road between Escalante and Boulder that I would like to drive next time when it isn't icy...

We stayed at Boulder for the night (unfortunately the devils backbone grill was closed for the season, we had heard good reports about its local cuisine...) but the lodge there was great. Sat in the hot tub surrounded by snow looking at the stars. Just what you need after that drive!

Below are some photos of that stretch.

Hi everyone this was posted yesterday on the DLRA site by Rob Carroll our President...........

Time for an update. I understand the membership feels left in the dark about what is happening with the permit to use the lake. I have tried to keep everyone updated as best I can through the forum (on the offline area).You must understand that these negotiations involve much more that just DLRA using Lake Gairdner. They are more about keeping the lake in pristine condition forever, so we and others can enjoy the lake not only for Land Speed Racing but also for the awesome natural beauty there. This lake and surrounding area holds a huge amount of significance to the local indigenous people and they are adamant it will not be destroyed.
My report on the meeting we went to on jan 15 in the Gawler Ranges can be read on the offline area. Today, Feb 2, I received a phone call from the Native Title Claimants Solicitor advising me of a meeting in Port Augusta on Feb 13, which I am invited to. He said attitudes are changing positively, (for us and his clients), so I am hoping for a good outcome. Be aware that we still cannot have Speed Week until we obtain the permit. The committee is continuing preparations for speed week and I suggest anyone wanting to attend Speed Week exercise some patience while we try to sort out the permit. I will post more information as it becomes available and more discussion will undoubtedly take place at the meeting next Sunday in Melbourne, so those members that can attend, I will see you there.
Rob Carroll President DLRA #12

It is five minutes to midnight, the event hangs in the balance for this year. The last two years of cancellations have taken their toll on the club and have knocked the stuffing out of anybody who'd thought about bringing anything from overseas.

I'd love to say that our bellytank is sitting in the trailer waitinfg for the day to leave ...the reality is it's still got a lot to do...as it stands we might have twelve months to finish it.

I'll keep you up to date.

Sorry to hear all of this.  I feel for you guys.   cry

Thanks for the picture.  I just loved that picture the first time I saw it.  Also thanks for the part off your tank that will go into my lakester somewhere.  I told the Rev I would send you a piece of mine also once I start cutting the tanks up.  We will be "blood lakester brothers"  grin.

Hoping for a positive response from the authorities.  Assuming a thumbs-up, how's the salt looking this year?  I know it's been hot and dry by you, Dr. G!

It's been scorching in South Australia for the past few weeks which must have gotten rid of some moisture but thunderstorms are predicted in the nnext week which may put it all back...
