My trip started out on Friday by waking up at 4:30 AM to head out to the Prescott airport, to MEET two guys and fly with them up to Colorado Springs, Colorado in a Beechcraft Bonaza V-tail. Having never met either of te two guys I was flying with they did a pretty good job of making the flight comfortable, but telling jokes etc, more on that later. LOL We got on the plane and headed out trying to beat the weather etc thaat you have to deal with when flying in a small plane. During the flight we fly over Sedona Red Rock, 4-corners of AZ, Colo, Utah, NM. also seeing the Meteor Crater in AZ, Shiprock Mountain in Colorado, Giant Pacman of Colo. etc. Once landed in Colorado Springs we grab our bags and head to the hotel to meet up with the team, which is where I got the connection to fly up with these 2 guys. After talking with them earlier in the week we were racing quad 450 and had qualified 6th out of 13. We meet up at the hotel just as the other people from the team are heading to take a nap from the last day of qualifying. Its about 2:30 by now and we decide to head to the top of the hill to check it out. Upon driving up we smell tons of people who have been smoking their brakes. With about 1/4 mile to reach the top a car infront of us over heats so we stop to allow them to pull off. After that we hit th gas to clear the summit and nothing. We have valve lock, so the forest service ranger walks down form the overheated car and says to us in my best southern 70 year old accent. "Yup you boyz have valve lock I ownly see tis bout 35 times aday" That is when your gas starts boiling so you arent getting fuel to the motor. We let it sit for abotu fifteen minutes and finish the trip upon reaching the top I have one of their world famous doughnuts, and snap a ton of pictures before returning on down the hill. As you reach Glen Cove you are stopped to have you brake temp. checked and anything over 300 degrees is told to stop and let them cool off. LOL! Well we got the high score for the day! 768 degrees! Hahahaha gotta love rental cars. The best part of it is the driver was trying to explain to me and Ken the pilot of the plane how he was barely using his brakes! After that pretty low key until we got to the hotel.
