    It'll be worth the drive, and then some;)
     
  3. Just find B :D B or Dillard and I won't be far away.
     
  4. A friend of mine is driving from the east, I am driving from SoCal. Just spectating and taking billions of pics.
     
  5. I'm goin' and driving my coupe from Phoenix. I'm leaving the 10th so I can be there Friday night. I can only stay the weekend though.

    I'm camping with a few guys from my club... stop by and have a beer or four with us at the bend.

    Got the word in the landracing chat the other night that there are 500 pre-entries already. Salt is good but thin out to the 8 mile Lots of dirt showing way downrange. The salt has shifted south this year.

    Looks like I'm going to go this year, won't be the same without Sharon but it will be good to see everyone on the salt again this year. Just did some maintenance on the truck so I don't get stuck in the middle of nowhere.

    Will be with some of my kids to spectate and stay at "the Bend In the Road".

    Latest 411 on the salt is..

    7-19-11 The advance team is on the salt and even though the thickness (or i should say thinness) of the salt has made it a real challenge, they have been able to layout two full length (8 mile) combo courses, a 4 mile short course and a 3 mile mini course.
    The salt is smooth and there are no pressure ridges, but at the end of each course is dirt or mud. Good working chutes will be of the utmost importance for this years Speed Week.

    From now on it is up to Mother Nature.

    This is our first time out to Bonneville and we can't wait! Will there be an official HAMB meeting?
     
  27. I understand there is a meet and greet just past the pit area.... but I have never been able to make it. I will have the HAMB OFC banner flying at my pit set up. Everyone is welcome to stop by and jaw awhile. We will have cold drinks available........

    We will be leaving on the 11th. My buddy and I set a goal to be running by the 25th for a test trip to the lake. We both fired them up Sunday and had trouble free trips driving 90 miles.
    Spent the last 2 weeks working 14-18 hr days. See you on the Salt we park around the 3 mile mark.
