Road trips are priceless.
It's personal time to live, do you own thing, forget about the everyday anchors of life's requirements.
Time to get away from it all and do your thing, when, where you decide.
Living life on your terms and no one elses.
When a trip like that is taken with a bud or buddies it will never be forgotten. As you age and unfortunately get to the point where no longer can you do those things, the past gets a lot more vivid and real. I did a similar thing with a vet bud of mine, we each drove our cars to a dragstrip about 70 mi. away for a grudge race--big money involved-not one but two McDonalds senior coffee's! I won 2 out of three, and still have the receipt from the win. My bud passed 3 years ago, tonight I'll go to my garage and have a strong drink for him, stare at my hot rod and think of times past, I miss him terribly.
Thats the rub..Road Trips.. the Best.
There was a HAMB Drags in 19?
@Tman hes off a year he was there in 18’ there was a H.A.M.B. drags in 19 though. It was a rain year, I actually remember handing off the yahoo cup to the guys headed south at Pete and jakes because I wasn’t going to make the race.
I'm referring to the 2019 H.A.M.B. Drags in this particular post about bridges. For the full story, check out TRJ #83 and this article here.
I forgot you went two years in a row and when I went to confirm that there was a 19’ drags I saw your photo of Joes roadster, and not realizing it had different wheels on it, clocked that it said 18’ and figured maybe you got them mixed up.
