    get up before the sun comes up,and go out to the salt.watching the sun come up at bonneville is one of the best sites.

    Ryan, DON'T wear shorts on the salt. Make sure when you put sunscreen on, that you put it places you don't normally think of, like under your chin, under your ears, under your arms. The sun reflects UP from the salt and burns all kinds of places you haven't had sun on in years.

    Hence, the 'no shorts' rule. Trust me, your boys will thank you.

    The salt gets in your blood, it's a wonderful disease. I have only been 3 times, but they have all been in a row and I plan to continue that streak without break. I can't get enough of it and don't worry Ryan, you still get that excited every time before you leave...well at least I do.

    I am as excited as I have ever been. I not exactly sure what I am going to do as far as a tent or chairs in case my dogs start barking but I am sure I'll figure that out when we get there. I also need to find a hat. I'll probably go to the mexican corner store down town and see if they are selling a sombrero.

    Hope to make the rounds and see all you guys there.

  15. You will LOVE IT!!! This is our 2nd year helping out our friend Steve (VanBlarcom & Gilmore #1946) Stop by and say "Hi" at the Ct. Street Rod Tent! There is a lot to do at night also...the car show at the Nugget, the Inliner's BBQ, The "Bend in the Road" BBQ. You can also stand on the state line and have one foot in Utah and the other foot in Nevada!! Ha Ha!!!

    Hell yeah -- see you guys there!! I agree with being at the staring line when the sun comes up. It is unreal!
    You can wear shorts, just make sure you were something underneath them that'll hide the 'boys' :) (boxer briefs!)


    Ok, back to work! I have a bunch to do before hitting the road - can't wait!

    ryan - had the chance to go in 2007, driving cross country in hot rods, from penna. with scary larry, fatabone, hotrod photos, motor mikey, plowboy, inkorekt, and others, greatest trip ever, worked with the 608 AA/GL, and 1986 E/STR, when we got there - can't wait to go again - scary larry on his way back now with the 1986 in tow - think spike said it best "if hot rodding is religon, this is the church!" - have a great trip!

    Ryan, be stoked - be very stoked!

    I went in 2006, and can't wait to get back. Here is a slight run down of how I planned my week of cars vacation:

    Bonneville for two days, you must stay at the Nugget.
    Short flight over to San Jose for lunch with Dad, then drive down 17/through Santa Cruz on the way over to Monterey for three days of auto overload.
    I viewed the Tour d'Elegance, and then drove in the RM Auctions.
    On Saturday before working at RM again, I snuck onto the grounds to see the Blackhawk collection, and the staging grounds for Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

    While I know I will never be in this league of car ownership, it was damn fun to check out some of these incredible machines first hand. a ton of which I had never even heard of before. While there is a lot of attitude at Pebble, there is also a ton to be soaked up.

    OH yeah, the rental car companies do NOT like it when they get there car back and the underside is caked in salt.

    And the comment about the sun reflecting up the pant legs - its true.

    Enjoy Ryan, we hope to see numerous pictures posted on the HAMB.
