    And Mr Big Chested BLM guy came with his younger Rangers to our area trying to find the culprits, claimed they saw us lauching that shit from the sagebrush to the West, yes, they were hiding West of the Bend. I appreciate them trying to keep things mellow but the rolleyes from the younger Rangers, who were cool BTW, let us know this guy was trying to impress the younger BLM folks.

    This was not me but I was there. "Son is that a glass bottle (of Jack)?" "Um, yes it is" " Glass bottles are illegal, pounr it out!" So, my new pal poured the pint down the hole in front of us............the firepit hole! "I talked to Mr Ranger a bit more after we all stepped back from teh JD Flambe and he realized we called his bluff. Rest of the night was as mellow as it started. Hanging out with some cool Wyoming folks drinking around the firepit and just having fun, in hushed voices.

    If you guys see a long haired Japanese hippy biker dude running around with an AMerican Steel club jacket on put his ass in a headlock and tell him that Gonzo says we miss him back here on the island!
    His name is Hedeke by the way. THis guy went on vacation which was supposed to be for a few weeks to the mainland and it has turned into a 3 month adventure with his butt ending up at Bonneville...the bastard!

    on friday afternoon two years ago, I caught this fella trying to explain how fast some of the cars could go on the salt flats to these Japanese tourists. These kids were trying to figure out why all these hot rods were parked everywhere and they had no idea about this thing called "Speed Week"...
    Here he is telling them about "400 MPH'.....
    He was doing a great job even with the language barrier...

    [​IMG]

    to the flats saturday morn

    [​IMG]

    "driver's-crew meeting" at 9:00 on saturday

    Doesn't look like I will be there to pour out my whiskey this year. Probably working 10 days straight right during speed week. Oh well, maybe next year. Plenty of my pals will be there to raise hell though. Hope everyone has a fun, safe week, and no floods.

    I've finally come to realize I can't make it this year. Man that hurts to say. Heading to Italy in Sept is the culprit.

    Thanks for the compliment Mazooma, and for anyone looking for Bonneville specific content on my website, go for http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/search/label/Bonneville or if you want anything else specifically, look down the right hand side at the alphabetical tags, and click on the one that you want to see content about, like El Mirage, or humor, or Racing LSR (Land Speed Racing) or whatever. I have a thousand or more tags, and racing, or streamliners, or humor might be just what you want, but without going through thousands of pages of content to filter through to find it.

    Wish I could make it to Bonneville this year too, but the ex stuck me with the new car payments. So there goes all discretionary spending. Maybe next year.
