Loren got involved in a big way. He & Paul Friewald traded the lead toward the end, but Paul made it to the mouth of Fall Line first, which pretty much decided that contest. Still, Loren should be proud of a close second. James ended up 6th with contact lense/chain/suspension problems. The Pro class was a barn burner. The top 5 finishers crossed the line within a minute of one another (so I was told).
I owe Denise, Ryder, Greg Johnson, Cyclery USA, Denise’s dad (Steve) for watching Sala and K&N; 9 months of thanks for helping out, putting up with me & for days off this year. Congrats & thanks to travel partners Josh, James, Loren & Sean for good company, good racing & money saved. And I can’t say enough about the van…
Denise & I celebrated 5 years of matrimony on Saturday. Instead of spending massive amounts of cash on a weekend away, we chose to take Ryder down to Cabrillo National Monument at Point Loma so he could get yet another stamp in his National Parks Passport. The little dude is less than 6 months old & he’s already been to Cedar Breaks, Zion, Saguaro & now Cabrillo. After checking out the lighthouse & some of the other stuff in the park we had dinner in SeaPort Village. Although the Salmon was top-notch, it probably didn’t help my cause at the Fall Classic; something more carb-filled would have been a better option. Ryder appeared to enjoy himself all day.
Posing for pictures is serious business.
Packers 52, Saints 3 – Days of yore are back.
Now that the season is finally over, I can finally build a patio cover, plant some trees, alphabetize the CD’s, put new music on the iPOD, put up some shelves in the garage, construct a climbing wall & paint the fence. I feel like I’m forgetting something.
In conjunction with K&N’s IndyCar® sponsorship, the IRL brought out their Fan Experience circus to K&N last Thursday. They cooked us tri-tip, chicken, corn on the cob & a ton of other stuff. As usual, I ate too much.
If he read my blog, Nigel Hill would probably hate it. Apparently he likes James’ blog because it’s usually filled with photos & no ramblings. I, on the other hand ramble.
Things got a little out of hand at the IRL Fan Experience. An unnamed co-worker broke a chair. Not World Wrestling Federation style. More like I ate too much tri-tip & chicken style.
