I'm going. I'm signed up for the Faast class too. I have been to a couple of of previous events and they are a lot of fun.

Be sure to give yourself a couple of days to play on the
mountain passes. A turbo car is a blast there

Only if I can get the dually and enclosed trailer that's usually available to me would I go all the way out there. I am not driving my car that far, it would probably make it there and back with no problems, but don't feel like risking it.

Speaking of which, Phil, you ever figure out what you're doing for MatG and needing to park your rig?

yeah, i'd like to go, but i don't particularly trust the car over that long a journey. If I had a tow rig, I'd consider it.

I don’t get it, I constantly see people concerned about making a long trip in there turbo car. I have had one failure in 18-20K miles, a charge pipe blew off. I would not hesitate to jump in my car, and drive cross country.
