Congratulations on your new baby boy. There is no greater gift than to be a dad. I hope Liam gets to go home VERY soon.
Kind of an emotionally charged night on my end. While the heartbreak is so raw for us, I really can find peace in your happiness. Small distractions and hearing happy stories like yours are helping get through this day.
Thanks for the tip. However, I wished to respond to each poster individually to address, clearly and adequately, each point raised and I also wanted to add a little more fuel to the "hot topic" flames as I believe this issue will do more to affect the future of off road racing in California, if not the whole country, than any other economic or environmental issues the sport faces.
I am very troubled by the apparent selfishness (it's OUR desert, with the implication users have more rights to ownership than non-users, even though public lands belong to ALL Americans; the "outta my way, I'm a big time desert racer" attitudes, etc., etc, etc, yaaaaaaaaaaah) that seems to permeate this board.
I note that no truly "big time racers" have commented much beyond Ivan Stewart's observation: "It was inevitable." (broadcast last August on ABC News)
yeah. we always worry about the trip over the hill to ojos. the fans are squirrels and there's alot of attrition. once we clear ojos it's just a worn out course full of mini whoops and twisty parts til RM 77. i hope the tt's knock the tops off the whoops on the old road for us. that section is brutal on limited cars and trucks and i hope our foxes live. if we can make it through our section to puertocitos where we switch off in decent shape and still ahead or close to it in class, we're as good as anyone i hope. i think there's a protruck right behind me though. we'll have to use treachery i'm afraid. ja ja. we're at the hotel mision santa isabel where irc is headquartered. rm # 101 to 104. stop by if you feel like it after contingency. we hafta get our yearly cage inspection because we snoozed so we're gonna try and get through it early in case we forgot our roll cage or something and have to fix something for the dictator savage.
thanks mike. things are so screwed up right now getting ready for this race. and it's more organized than ever. the racetruck is prepped and ready but we had to buy a new[er] chase truck after the old one puked an engine last week and we're trying to put together a decent chaser at the last minute. it's coming together pretty good and we'll be heading down tuesday night...are you ready buddy? good luck and race smart. respect.rs
