    Last year I was coming down Louie B Nunn from the Somerset area and it rained like all get out. Just before I got to BG it stopped. A couple of drizzles, but racing all day long. Whether men don't know squat in my opinion. Rain never stopped at party.

    Enloe, please fill us in on camping at Beech Bend. Are there designated sites? Grills, picnic tables, toilets, showers? Can you enter the camp grounds just to check it out?

    We're staying at a motel this year. Thinking about maybe camping next year my Grandson would love that.

    BTW , I'd like to have your cell #.

    There are designated sites but we don't stay in one. We camp far enough from the designated sies that when we are ready to sleep it is pretty peaceful. There are a few bathhouses with showers. There are picnic tables but no grill. We bring our own small charcoal grill. If you want to check out campground we will go over and you can check it out.

    Look forward to it.

    I remembered giving you the YOU SUCK last year it is good to know I am not having to give you one this year.
     
  10. Left monday. Went to cooling components in memphis. My fan motor went out. I was going to memphis any way. What are the chances of that. No shipping charges. The guys at fast efi made the updates on my ecu and set up the traction control. Leaving memphis in another hour. Then on the road to bg.

    bobkatrods, know where your coming from about driving 11 hours for something that may not take place and don't blame you one bit.
    Now the good news: watched a weather forecast regarding storm Bill and this forecaster said its very possible the storm could track further north over Indiana and Ohio not into Kentucky. Sure hope he's right. A friend of mine said he called several hotels in Bowling Green and had trouble getting a room. Guess not many people bailing just yet.
    I'm only 1 1/2 hours away and no plans to bail. Besides we're still two days out and a lot can change between now and then.

    This the best weekend of the year Camping, racing and show what else do you need? This is my fourth year going and I try not to miss it. Unfortunately I just sold my 48 Chrysler and will be coming down in my truck with my little camper. I am at work till 4:30AM and have the camper with me so I will be leaving straight from work. My friend is coming down Thru. in his 57 Chevy truck so if you see it or my camper stop and say hello.
    If you see me stop by.
