I usually count my TTTEOMH (time to the end of my hitch) by the drills completed... We have a drill every week, and so, I have four, three two or one, drill left... I am at one drill, but that isn't helping, so I went to days, then hours, I'm on minutes and getting close to seconds...I just can't count that high...
and if you arrive in Phoenix late Saturday eve, you should be just in time for the After Fest Party....

I think there is going to be a huge crowd, Savini is putting it on... If you manage to make it out, hopefully we'll get to meet...


Thanks bro., for the kindness. Talked to my wife, Kathleen, shes up for trying to make it Sat. night. Gotta get our rental after landing. Bet it wont be a 'maro. :(

Next time you're in San Antonio, give any of usw in the San Antonio thread a shout out, we'll make sure you hook up with us if you're here on a Friday night.... Some of us will hook up any night...

Robert - you once talked about the new twins and you going backwards at 100MPH. I have to share with you what we saw at the Texas Mile this morning.
A corvette pulled up to the line and started rolling down the track....then you could hear the turbos kick in......the next sight was this Corvette going backwards first and then leaving the pavement sideways thru the dirt......... I immediately thought of you, Brandi and your comment about going backwards....

The Vette was fine after a quick change of underwear he was back in line and ran 197 MPH.

Get back soon .......

Ohhhhhh, NOooooooo,

It's true huh...

I guess I really do need to invest in a driving instructor. Dammit, Ashley had to go and get pregnant...

There will be no video cameras anywhere within twenty miles when I make my first drive. I am not going to be an instant celebrity on frigg'in YOUTUBE...

Maybe I'll save the driving lesson cost and just invest in depends and a "get in the bathroom free pass for anywhere along the highways."

"No, I did not buy any gas, I do not want a coke, just gimmee the frigg'in key....

#%*%$#%^&$@ here, I'll take this piece of gum... oh and some wet wipes, NOW GIMME THE %^*$%^& key...."

Dude, I am leading, and you just try to keep up...

See Russ, It's a Texas thing... We are looking forward to meeting you and the missus, and don't worry about what you're driving from the rental place, just drive it...like you stole it...

There are some sneaky dudes working on my car...

I ordered a SJM line lock kit for my car for Corey and company to install...

We talked about how it would work...ie: flip this switch,, hit the horn, step on the brakes etc...

We also talked about where to mount the switch but only briefly...

So, here is the end result...I'll let you decide if what I'm saying is correct... I picked the right shop, thats all I can say...
