    Re: VIR Roll Call

    DAVE??? KEV??? I would likey to do the seminar aslo either one or both.

    It would be a good prep to the weekend. who else is up for this plan???

    me kim dan richey ........

    it only takes 50 - 60 mins to get to PK's house


    I would like to be out the driveway at 330am +/-

    I know it's scary to think about that time but it's when I normally get up and it would get us to VIR by 4:30 +/- pm taking into account stops for gas and stuff and keeping a moderate pace

    Re: VIR Roll Call

    what are everyone's thoughts about food for Sunday's RV trek....do we make any stops or is it a matter of bringing what we want to eat with us?

    Re: VIR Roll Call

    I have some snack stuf but most likely, when we stop for gas, folks get a chance to grab some o' that fine rest area food.

    Then, depending on timing and appetite, we could go out to dinner Sunday night after we get all unloaded and stuff...

    ...my opinion...

    Re: VIR Roll Call

    diner on sunday is an absolute as I don't want to be tanking up during track time .... what about Monday eve?? dinner and fire arms store if they have that sort of thing down there

    imo sucks trying to move around the tank when your own tank is full.

    during trip food is fine ... plenty of space to store it

    The bus will be unhooked after it's secured and or locked up. anyone have a trailer hitch lock??

    Re: VIR Roll Call

    Looks like a bunch of us are going to go to the suspension seminar. Hope we aren't trying to cram too much into too little time what with packing and the bbq and all!!!

    If a bunch of us are really heading down to GMD, shouldnt someone give Pete a heads up? Didn't see any in his thread....!

    No worries, Ed will be taking the truck back with him. I didn't think you'd mind the extra room in the driveway.

    I think that Pete's having some pizza or something at the seminar. My assumption was that the bbq was being replaced by the seminar because of the time issue and the arrival time at Matt's house.

    Re: VIR Roll Call

    Last minute questions:

    Please, please, please tell me that one of you guys is good at safety wiring...I've got the clamp on the oil filter and drilled the plastic oil filler bolt....other than that I'm and don't want to make a stupid mistake. I've got the cobalt drill bits and wire....can someone help me?

    Secondly, what are the sleeping arrangements tonight? Should I bring a sleeping bag?

    The bike is on the back of the truck and it's time to get the food and gear together...can't believe the VIR trip is finally here!!!

    I have the safteywire pliers too...

    and yes...a sleeping bag is probably a good idea for tonight!

    Matt has picked up the trailer and is on his way back. I am leaving in about 30 minutes.

    kermita-I have everything you need for the safety wire shiz....Dewalt drill, bits, wire, pliers...the whole shabang.

    Tomato- if you read this before you leave, watch for the piggaz from NY thru DC...they were out in full force today...seemed like for every 1 car pulled over there were 3 cruisers behind it....also, people seem to have an issue with crashing.......I'm blaming Easter...

    Re: VIR Roll Call

    Literally just arrived home. Long ass weekend. Worth EVERY FUCKING SECOND. Weather was ok, rainy and cold monday morning, warmed up and dried out in the afternoon. Cold tuesday morning but turned out beautiful. Track was incredible, the company was awesome. Couple crashes, couple injuries, nothing too serious, but Ill let others fill in some details. I need to get some damn sleep.

    +1 - great time. A little crappy weather the first morning, but after that it was beautiful. Less than 25 people per group...lots of open track. The facilities were impressive (stayed in a room over the garage with microwave/fridge...overlooking the straight). The other folks at the track were funny/cool/helpful.

    Edit to say: thanks Tomato for planning/driving. You guys would not believe the way he can manuver/back up a 60+ foot vehicle.
