I can only imagine how far off the tracks would this post careen, if I were a cat person :roll:
I appreciate all the input, though! I'm looking forward to July.

I made excellent progress on the mount for my shoulder harness (finally). The hardest part is to commit to making a cut. With that done, I'm real pleased with the way it turned out. All that's left are a thousand little things. I'm in good shape for July.

Hmm - flamingo-colored railing and uprights -- a nice alternative to the more common window safety net, but perhaps - you'll have a difficult time getting that approved in tech :roll:

I have the 2011 ruels & records book. I will be at the Caribou Inn. I plan on getting there for Friday. I have a few simple questions. Some things are still unclear to me, having never been there or done that before. Maybe I'm dim, I don't know...
1. When and where will rookie orientation be?
2. When and where would vehicle tech be conducted?
3. When does the racing begin and end.

Thanx,
Bil

Rookie Orientation will be Friday. Somewhere between 3-5.  We will let you know.

Inspection is near reg.  We will direct you where to go.

Racing starts Saturday at 9, or 10 depending on how many drivers meeting stragglers there are.....

Ponchobilly,

Just get to the track Friday by 2pm, pick out a pit and set up.. There will be folks there to point you in the right direction.  Once you are there it will be fun,,, The course workers/volunteers and other racers will make feel at home and help make sure you have the lay of the land...

See you there,

My original thought was to leave home real early on Friday to be in Caribou before sundown (600+ miles). Is there also rookie orientation & tech Saturday morning? Otherwise, I need to see if I can get the room for Thursday too and revamp my vacation plans from work.
Just get to the track Friday by 2pm, pick out a pit and set up..

As far as setting up a pit, I only need to open the trunk and take the jack and spare, and set up my folding chair. I'm going for time only. Truely a "run what you brung" kinda deal.

I had fun. I'm thinking about the September event. It ran 122.6mph through the traps and I reset high score on the GPS at 126 when I had to let off. It was still accelerating when I ran out of runway. Maybe a little more tape will do the trick!

But the important question, Bil, did you get a lobster?
