Hah I agree. I would not pay it... But pops makes a bit more money then I do... and the only way he was going is if he could take his RV and not get caught in the endless traffic clusterfuck that will undoubtedly occur while going to/from the track. That and my brother is an engineer for Force India, so this will be our only realistic opportunity for the family to visit him at a race.

I'll be there a little after midday Friday.

Will miss first practice session due to a prior engagement (reading at my daughter's school that morning, and not bailing since I promised I'd be there...reading's important yo).

Will have to shuttle in...here's to hoping it's not a cluster.

I'll be getting into town Thursday and leaving Tuesday.

I'll also be bringing in a backpack filled with bottled water, which is allowed. I'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard to substitute liquids in one or more of the bottles.

I saw a detailed schedule somewhere, lemme look.

Would you guys prefer a G+ circle or hang-out? I'm not sure if "Groups" sucks horribly or if it's because I'm stuck using IE6 at work. I don't have full functionality on IE6 nor my phone.
