You do realize that Major Hater will be quieter with a turbo? You'll have to do something about that.

Hearing the story, I kind of wished I had been there. Thinking about it later, I'm glad I wasn't.

It must've been you telling me about this. Sounds like a sketch time, I like sketch... I'm definitely in for more driving next year for sure.

The Ecotec gang from Canada were up at the back of Fontana (cabin 1036 on Licklog - LOL) and we had Fontana wifi on the porch but not on the street in front. The V8 roadster guys next door had Verizon coverage on their porch.

Ahh, GA180. I hope they repaved it since I was there 6 years ago. It was coarse and gravelly back then.

I ran down Licklog. Wait, let me rephrase that. I jogged on Licklog Rd. and a few others nearby on Saturday morning before we went driving. I gotta watch what I say around this crowd.

It was brand new (and still slippy!) when we were there in '14 so it should be perfect now.

See, I made the mistake of assuming you were talking about MH. Forgot about your history. So, is wifey getting turboed?

I just went back to the gap hunting duallys in the family truckster.



And I tried to see the eclipse but the moon got in the way. So sad.

Speaking of, did anyone else buy any shots from the local companies? I usually get one every year just to sort of mark the occasion. The past 3 years I have gotten one from Killboy but 129slayer dude, I felt, grabbed a great shot of mine on the way in Saturday morning.

There was only one picture that i maybe might have possibly but not really felt good enough about to purchase, so in the end i decided that if i need to flip a coin to decide, i didn't need to spend $6.00 for a digital photo of my junkpile.
