I am coming Friday the 7th and will be there at 9am.

Hope you don't plan on waking Scottmang that early. Impossible, I say...

I am going to nail down my official plans this week. I need to talk with my brother about what is going on with this New Hampshire thing.

If I come, I'll be driving a '69 A12 Superbee 4 spd...













in my dreams.

I'd be driving Grimace, and would probably be there after 8 Friday night, unless I can hatch a scheme to get Friday off from work. Maybe if I'm early enough I will meet folks at the track. Otherwise, I'll sit around and pet the cats until you guys get back. lol.

Yeah, good luck on that one - the only way to wake me up would be to start cooking something that smells good. So if you don't plan on showing off culinary skills, I'd say you're stuck with Gabe and Pete only ;) By the way I will be of no help with that tent even if I'm awake, I'm totally spoiled with having a truck with either stake sides (throw a tarp over it, hello roof) or fiberglass canopy, so I never learned how to put up tents, lol.

lol Looks like i am stuck with Gabe and Pete.

I have practiced putting up the tent so i feel i should be able get it done pretty easily.

Im a late sleeper too... but if you get some coffee brewing inside that will get me moving :D

Make sure its good coffee, not that weak Folgers crap we get stuck with at work. That comes out like hot water with a very slight coffee flavor to it. It doesn't even smell like coffee.

87gtVIC
07-22-2009, 08:56 PM
I never made coffee in my life. I guess i will just make my tent and go to sleep. :rofl:

I think i will have to because i am normally in bed my 8pm!

I wish. ATC runs through the whole year, no big breaks, so no summer vacation, basically.

Automotive Training Center :lol:

I don't know, ask the douchebags that run this place. Probably to make it feel more like work instead of a school environment. :yawn:

I gotta head up friday morning now, it was storming last night so I wasnt able to load up the car... I am ocd when it comes to packing for a trip... and even if i was able to hop right from work to shower to on-the-road, Id get there 11-12 at best. Having to load the car at the last minute would surely have put me in the wee hours of the morning...
Sorry I cant help prep the place scott, I'll try to get here as early as I can... it will probably be before noon and hopefully i wont miss the dragstrip.
maybe I will wake up at 4am for some freak reason and make it there early. Maybe i should drink as much water as i can before bed so i either wake up having to pee or having wet myself...

08-06-2009, 07:48 PM

08-07-2009, 11:16 AM
Oh yeah... I'm supposed to be going to this tonight...

After work, I have to go to my Dad's shop, and pick up a wheelcover for Mike. I forgot it last night, and didn't feel like going back.

Then I have to go to the bank, and then I need to gas my truck up.

Then I need to pack some shit in a bag, shower, and gather up some sleeping stuff.

Then I have to drive to Nick's house, about 30 minutes away.

Then I have to drive 4+ hours to Scott's.

I have quite a few things to do, yes. Life is far more exciting when you leave it til the last minute...

At least I washed my truck last night. Should have waxed it, but maybe I'll do that this weekend...

See you folks this evening.
