Same here. I ended up with the ride because a friend saw an ad somewhere (probably in SportsCar, but I don’t remember ever asking) and I replied. He and another friend volunteered to crew and I did the deed... poorly.
Yeah. I learned on a Terratrip 303, but I only did the one rally. Technically we did three rallies; in addition to the two-day national rally each day was an individual club rally.
This is all too much work. We have three chains within convenient driving distance; Stop & Shop, Big Y, and Aldi. I usually alternate between the first two depending on my mood, and my wife occasionally goes to Aldi for certain things. For once-in-a-while bulk items, we have a BJ’s because Costco was just too weird.
The breaded tenderloin is essentially The Official Sandwich of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. They’re not quite as large as what is in the picture, but they are pounded pretty thin. Plus they taste like you’re eating salted fat, and I couldn’t finish the one I ordered at the Speedway.
As an east coaster, part of the allure of In-N-Out is the forbidden fruit nature of it all. The handful of times I’ve eaten In-N-Out, I’ve never had a bad meal.
Those first two pages give me flashbacks to long silences between instructions - once I figured that out - and hitting a foot pedal to reset the rally computer, which I recently (as in just now) learned isn’t much of a thing anymore.
This is - and has always been - the correct answer.
You kids and your recce. When I did right-seat for the MFR in 2000, the SCCA didn’t allow recce, so you had to rely on the notes they provided. Training (it was my first and only time as a navigator) involved learning what the tulips meant. That was it. I sounded like Nicky Grist for about five minutes of the first…
Based on the Scoobie in the woods at the :09 mark, seems like perhaps those rocks weren’t exactly there during recce?
Apollo 11 was interesting to watch. My biggest issue with First Man wasn’t that they glossed over so much of Apollo 11, because technically it was a bio of Armstrong and not a film about that specific mission. My issue was their decision to “patina” the spacecraft. The Gemini and Apollo spacecraft, which were both…
I wasn’t all that far away, but I was at a pool.
Cool Ranch Doritos smell like feet and taste what I imagine something that smells like that would taste. So, unless you’re into that, what exactly is the debate?
And don’t forget Young also went to the moon on Apollo 10.
Okay, I feel a little less bad about Charlie Duke then. Not that military guys in their late 30s in 1971 were going to listen to anything better.
Last night NASA ran the entire uncut video of the moon walk in real time (Armstrong says “One small step for man” at the exact time he did 50 years ago. It was the first time I’d seen an unedited version of the walk and it was fascinating.
And now the race is tape-delayed on NBCSN for what I assume is weather at Iowa for IndyCar.
The C8 is the most radical change to the Corvette since the C2 came out in 1963.
He’s been working with a hitting coach who basically told him, “Whatever I tell you to do, you do the exact opposite.”
I just got home and turned it on. You don’t need Gold, but you do need the app, which requires a cable subscription.
The C8 is the most revolutionary Corvette since the C2... from 1963.
