    Re: VIR Roll Call

    Mr. Tomato....

    ONE WEEK FROM TODAY WE MEET...

    Saturday afternoon the motley crew is supposed to meet up at your house to load up and prepare for a crack 'o dawn departure Sunday...n'est ce pas?

    So...where IS your house? Or where should we meet? (Thought it was somewhere in the original thread but can't find it anymore!)

    Was gonna program some routes into my Zuma...


    ....any further discussion on Kim offer to bring her husband in as a part time indentured servant/cook? I would be happy to kick in to buy bbq stuff and share the cooking duty...

    Giggity!
    Anything we need to bring that wouldnt be obvious for a track day? Like entertainment for the winnie or food or drink or anything? I do sing and dance for quarters, so that should amuse us.

    Re: VIR Roll Call

    There's really only a couple of Winnie courtesy rules

    keep driver awake
    keep driver fed
    keep driver hydrated
    keep driver entertained


    If you can cover this the winnie has DVD capabilities and VHS with a 27 inch tv up front


    Hey all that are going and meeting us can you post up what your toting with you for example

    Pitt : 1 bike and 1 large duffle bag and 1 set leathers and 1 set of rain tires

    I am trying to plan out for the trailer loading and bike count etc...


    MY ADDY: 264 Pine st Leicester MA 01524

    these are the directions from the off ramp of Mass Pike exit 10 to rt 12 south to my house



    you can also take 190 south and take these roads




    I will put my 4 wheeler at the end of the driveway for you to see as you come down the street.

    I have a little more snow to clear to accomodate you parking at the house
    and be able to get the winnie out of the drive but it should be fine it is almost completely melted.


    As far as the cookout???? Starts any time after noon ...hang, prep the trailer, eat, ride the quad, kick the dogs ... the more day lihgt we have to load the trailer the better

    Kim .... the h.ubby is more than welcome to take the reins as chef for the day. you guys live close correct?

    I will get an alterative to BBQ

    Post up .... chicken or burgers and dogsor both


    I will have a case of water for the trip if you want/need something different please bring it. the fridge can fit a case of soda cans and a couple of other things plus a little food and it has a freezer if we want to bring some food to cook up after riding

    I've got Faster on DVD (as I'm sure most of you do)....I could watch that a million times. Any other racing videos ya'll got? A bit of poker sounds good to me as well.

    From what I can tell right now...1 bike, 1 large gear bag, rear stand. What is the best way to handle fuel? I've got a 5-gal fuel container.

    How about chicken and beef kabobs, rice of some sort, grilled veg? Ed and I can bring the fixings for that and if anyone wants to do some muchies/apps, that would be cool. How's that sound?

    For traveling food...sandwich fixings, chips, fresh fruit, that sort of thing? What is the food situation at the track? Is there any place to pick up a little something for breakfast? It looks like there's a place for dinner...right?

    Going back to working on the SS now....I can't wait 'til next weekend!

    I don't think you'll find distilled water there. Suggest you bring along some Water Wetter and just add that to regular water...at least, I think thats what others do. I don't even think about it..!!! Right Kim???!!!

    Re: VIR Roll Call

    Kim was asking what the food situation is like down there.

    At the track, the food is nasty. The hot dogs are 'ok' but the burgers suck. I would try to bring sandwiches or something. there is a pizza place about 5 minutes up the road (at the traffic lights where there is a big hump in the road, you can't miss it).

    Enjoy and don't ruin the track for us when we go a week later.

    derek

    Thanks for the H.U. Degsy

    Is there a cheap-o-mart or wal-mart super center near by? I don't mind transporting food a few miles but not 600 mi


    just for that comment I will be sure to leave some hidden fluid on the track

    Yeah, head out of the track entrance and turn right towards rt 57. Cross from VA to NC and back several times in 10 minutes. At rt 57 intersection there is another pizza place and a mini-mart on the right (Kinda like a Cumby's but built in 1953).

    if you turn left onto rt 57 and go past 27 NASCAR collectible stores in about 10 miles you will come into Danville. There is a motorcycle dealership on the right. They are shite and don't even know what a clip-on is (don't ask how I know).

    In Danville you will find a few chain restaurants and steak houses, as well as lot's of people with Mullets and fat chicks. Don't mention denno in any of the bars and don't mention my name in the Courtyard marriott.

    The RESTAURANT/PUB at the track (NOT the snack bar in the pit area) is VERY VERY good. A little more pricey than Danville, but it's really good food and the bar is cosy. The service is a little slow if they have more than 20 people in there, but it was still ok. Not a place to go if you want to have a good old southern hoot 'n' hollerin' time.

    If you haven't been before, the garage suites on the start finish staright and the hotel onsite are top notch. You can watch the bikes go under your balcony at 170mph on one wheel.

    Enjoy.

    ...no worries...lots of strip malls with real grocery stores within 15 minutes...maybe even a Piggly Wiggley!!!

    (and that pizza place Degsy refers to...they have figured out how to make pizza with 7 times the grease of an average pizza. last time I was there the waitress looked like she had been mud wrestling in oil. after a full day on the track its not a bad place to reload however...)
