There are a few of us planning on meeting up on Saturday at the Hot Rod Reunion. Bad Rat and I meet here every year for the last 4 years or so, we have a blast. We have a few more from Texas trying to get this way also. Any others interested? I am going to drive my coupe into the grounds area, I bring lawn chairs. food and drink for the oil down times..lol. Let's hear from all that are going.

I plan on something like last years sandwiches again, pork is on sale at my fave store. I am still trying to find out about driving in to the place like last time, can't get an answer.

I am putting on the finishing touches on breakfast and lunch for the Hot Rod Reunion. Breakfast burritos and pulled pork sandwiches. 4 a.m. and I am fired up, can't sleep, going to meet up with Bad Rat, he goes every year, comes down from Washington, Wretched Ratchet will be there, maybe 36willys will show also, he doesn't make too many Sat. events though, WR flew in Thursday, BR (Bill) took him to the coast yesterday to see the Pacific ocean. The coupe is almost loaded, I drive in, we have a place to hang out.
If any of you guys are going, look for my coupe, we won't be too fr away. Probably be at the car when an oil down happens, lunch time, hopefully we get a decent place to park. Dan

Met up with the guys yesterday, we had a blast! Em is a real nice guy, lots of good stories to spin, Bill and I go back a few years, we always have a good time. Bill brought his grandson Cooper with him, a super nice kid, 9 years old, very well behaved and polite. He really dug the races and was wanting to jump into the stands quickly after our breaks. Got the coupe into the grounds, we had breakfast burritos and pulled pork sandwiches, chips and salsa to hold us through the day, set up lawn chairs and had a nice place to kick back. Beautiful weather, 80 with a nice breeze most all day. Hopefully we will make this an annual event for all of us, Bill, my buddy Gary and I will be there, God willin, hope Em gets to join us also and any of you all that want to join us, get to planning! Racing was great and I really need to find the second to last AA fuel altered race on you tube or maybe it is in the Bangshift archives, the best I have ever seen, made me say Holy ******* about 5 times as they went down the track!

Incredible indeed plus this old Texan got to meet and hang out with Dinger and Bad Rat. Heck, I even got to see the Pacific Ocean, Elephant Seals and dine on Dinger's breakfast burritos and pulled pig sammiches. I'm gonna tell ya folks, that Dinger is "the hostess with the mostess" and Rat's a "tour guide par excellance".

Thanks for taking care of me and for a wonderful time gentlemen. I'll never forget it.

Em
