Never been to one. I guess its a bay area thing, we just have a ton of IHOPs and Dennys here.

Will be really cool to meet some of you ******** though.

We can make fun of m.net and cr and then drive down and mingle with all of them.

They're a chain, first one I went to was in St George but there's one about a mile from our house here in Portland.

I'll be there!

I made it to Oklahoma from Ohio before breaking(another) water pump/alternator tensioner mount. Limped it home 12hours, by myself, in silence yesterday with an in and out charging system and unable to apply more than 3/4 throttle.

I'm hoping on a cheap Frontier Airlines flight tomorrow.
I have a group A spot and no car to drive. Yay.

Seriously, put Doward/Dan in your car, don't let me near it.

The organizers seem to be somewhat OK with people moving slots around. I mean what are they going do, tell you to sit and spin after your car broke and you had to change plans? I've seen different people team drive the same car in different groups the last couple years. Just let the organizers know ahead of time.

Well if EO2K knows Doward that is a good enough reference for me. I'll respond to your PM in a bit Doward.

Haha, I don't know know him, I'm just saying anyone with a slot in A and a car full of aero probably has more business than I do hooning in someone else's car. I drive like my grandmother and it's been over a year since I've been on a track.

I am in Vegas!
Are we for sure doing this breakfast? It would mean me getting a cheap motel tonight somewhere between here and there rather than just leaving hear early tomorrow morning.

I wanted to ask the same last night but got distracted. Grats on making it to Vegas!

I'm a fat kid so I love me some breakfast, we all still on for 9am at the Black Bear in Monterey tomorrow? Solid headcount would make it easier to pick out a table for whomever gets there first (hint~hint)

I'll be there. I'm leaving late tonight and just going to time it to arrive there at 9am.

Not driving during the day with no AC.

Trying to psych myself up for driving 9 hours without my cruise control wired up yet.

Hold me

Ed thank you SO MUCH for offering me a spot to crash on the floor of your hotel room, saved me looking for a spot to pull off into to crash for the night hippy style.

Want me to show up a little early to reserve a table?

I'm roughly counting 9 or so of us?

I'll put the reservation under kittens & hairdressers.

Where are you guys staying in Salinas and what time are you getting in? The place can get real scary at night, there are probably parts of town you don't want to see.

I will be there for breakfast for sure, possibly with Gesso if I we can get his ride straightened out.

Haven't booked the room yet.

Might need some help tonight, seems my fuel pump is going out after all. Hoping to still be able to make it without stopping to change it out.
