holy crap washington or oregon they have got to be out of there mind i would never go that far just for a little weekend fun unless i did it for a living.
I think they took extra time off to enjoy the drive. I believe it was a father and son team who trailered their Z to FVR and won some awards.

I think that was one of the R33's? Regardless, that is one long ass haul especially pulling a trailer! :OMG: My longest haul in the Z wsa to Myrle Beach - about 600 miles. Split it into 2 days going down (via the Tail of course!) and one long day coming back, mostly through blinding rain. Not a fun trip, especially having to visit with a NC Trooper just after leaving FVR on Sunday morning on my way to meet Bryan and @!%&$*(lol, some will get that) for breakfast on my way to the coast.
And Terri, that was Chris who gave me a ride that day too - really rounded out the entire experience :shiftdrive:

Track Day Registration

Every year, these guys put up threads on every car site that I run across. I have yet to go, but I want to do the Autobahn Country Club so badly it hurts. Almost 4 miles of road course heaven awaits me no more than 6 hours away.
We got to do some "parade laps" there during the Midwest Regional event 2 years ago - they gave us a pretty free rein but no passing allowed so it wasn't quite a track day. And we were only on 1/2 of the course - other half was being used for a real track day. Nice track but flat as a pancake so not one of my favorites. Mid Ohio is awesome but it is really challenging - I need much better brakes before I could go all-out there. Of course it is only an hour up the road so that's a plus.

I was a land sailor - 4 years and never served on a ship. Communications/Cryptologic Tech - not a whole lot of sea berths for that rate and at the time, I wasn't all that wild about having to go to sea anyway. In hindsight, I now wish I had - would have seen more of the world that way. Spent a year in Winter Harbor Maine, a year on Diego Garcia broken up with 45 days of TDY in northern Thailand, and a year in Edzell Scotland. Only DG is still open - imagine that technology got to the point where the other two were not needed - plus the mission has changed a lot since 1977 when I got out. Enjoyed all 4 years though, especially Scotland - I made E-5 while there so lived on the local economy rather than on base.
