Two weeks away... Is anybody going to make it? I know Rusti said she'll be there. I may miss some of the Friday night activities (my flight comes in late) but I'll be there all day Saturday.

I really wish I could, but I'll be coming home from a work trip that weekend and I don't know when I'll be getting back. :-(

I think they have a misspelling (or I assume so). I don't think Barstow has an 'e' -- at least not according to the scripts (I can't find it anywhere else to prove it though).

Yush, I shall be there, in all my frazzledness...

It'll be a much needed break from being bitten, clawed, hissed and growled at...my patients are great though.

I'd offer you a ride, Shade, but unless you can get here by Thursday afternoon, it's void anyhow. And Ende would have to sit in your lap.

Thanks Rusti, I appreciate the offer, but unless my trip gets canceled, there's no way I can make Thurs. :-(

I unfortunately AGAIN will have to pass on the Nats... grr.. The Formula isn't really road worthy for a trip like that.. and really dont have the funds to go this year.. REALLY hope next year I will...... I hope people will take pics so some of us that can't go will get a piece of it. Thanks.

Say Rusti.. how did your T/A come out? Haven't seen pics since you got the car.

Sorry hun, you must have me confused with somebody else. Never bought a T/A.

Can't say that I plan to. My new car money will be going to a black Ford F-150 flareside. :)

Hmm.. my appologies..... There was a woman at the 01 Nats that had just bought a Black T/A with the Phoenex on the hood... was going to fix it up.. thought it was you.. sorry.

how's that work anyway? i ordered mine online on friday. do they mail them to you or do you pick them up when we get there?

I guess it depends on where you ordered them from. I found my on Travelocity and it said that I need to print the confirmation and bring it to the Airline desk when I arrive to get my boarding tickets. It's this e-ticket type thing I believe.

Here are my photos for the first day. I don't have any for the second day cause we decided record it on video. So Mike, knightshade, Joe, Rusti and others will be posting theirs. I'll be posting some video clips of Patricia shortly, hopefully
