A Safe Pass on Mex 1

Hey Everybody,

I've been meaning to add my part of the story for some time, and will when I get back from the midwest... For now though, here's a photo from the drive back to San Diego after the M1k. Here's OC executing a beautiful semi-pass on Mex 1. It doesn't get safer then this; no, seriously though, it doesn't.




A view from the twisties:



Even loaded to the gills on the ride home, Dirty Dorthy still handled everything we could throw at her like a champ...

OK, I'm sorry, but wtf?

Let's have it! All the lead up and no follow through for us arm chair racers. I know life catches us up with you after spending every available minute on this, but you're leaving us in the dust!

Let's have it!

Please?

I'm assuming that the camping spot is in the same county as your casa, if you really want that beer.

Hey everyone....My motor guy David went in for open heart surgery today and it sounds like it went very well. If you think of it, send some good thoughts his way or prayers if thats your thing too...he is a very religious man and it would be very welcome. The crazy thing is, he was down here on Saturday pulling a motor out of a Subaru Legacy wagon I picked up for parts




And then he spent Monday and Tuesday installing a clutch into my radio sponsor Tim's daughter's car! Insane! He's a good man and I wish him a speedy recovery!! I'll be checking on him Monday. Gotta get him healed up....M1K is only 10 months away!

FYI you're also on my "locals to harass" list. Will touch base when a bit closer.

That should give you plenty of time to finish up this report.

Thanks for asking Ray. David is surprising all of his doctors. He was awake 2 hours after open heart surgery!


He is making a remarkable and quick recovery!
I thought I would be visiting him in the hospital tomorrow...but he might actually be released in the morning! I will still be heading over and visiting him where ever his butt is.

I think he is checking here..because he texted me about using a photo of him pulling a motor in shorts!
