I'm more than likely not going to make it unless I make some lightning progress on this car this month, which is unlikely.

She said yes.

I could bring the 77 but I need to redo brakes which is the rx7 calipers, and a new master cylinder, put the turbo back on, fix the wastegate, fix the exhaust, new tie rods, and stop the unknown vibration.

Or just drive the wagon.

I love you all, especially Kenny's laces. But i will be tight on money this spring (building engines and what-not), and I'm going to carlisle. Also, the nanticoke tri and the kinetic sculpture race are that weekend, and I'm getting heckled for not attending the last few years. We'll see.

Well, the outdoor bathroom will be in full operation, so that will please the missus. Of course, she'd forgotten the MANY discussions we had about this particular event, and when it came up in other conversation yesterday.. well.. things had to be explained again. Now she's contemplating going out of town that weekend (fine with me...)


anyway, aside from waiting on the new rpm pickup for the dyno, I reckon things are ready to go.

My current plan is to leave at the ass-crack of dawn on Friday, roll through Chattanooga and check out a few things I've been meaning to see for awhile, then take the scenic route down through NE Alabama. I might be there in time to say goodbye on Sunday.

Is there anyone coming down from Tennessee? I'm trying to plan my trip and I'd have to leave at like 4 in the morning to get there by 5 which would suck. But if I could leave Thursday night and crash somewhere along way.

I live in Knoxville, TN. I think that's quite a bit out of the way. Perhaps someone from Nashville will chime in.
