Well guys, I have to count myself out of this trip.  Our washer took a digger and I had to divert funds from the trip to replace the washer.  I really wish I could go and was looking forward to seeing you guys race and partake in all that is bar-b-que.

Damn Dave, that sucks.  We're gonna miss you.
I'm not sure what time we're leaving.  How do you guys feel about getting out of Denver around 9:00?  That'd give traffic a little time to clear and still get us there before happy hour.

I probably won't be leaving till around 9:45 or so from Longmont, we will see how many patients I get scheduled for that morning ;) I didn't know we were planning on following each other, so don't worry about me if most want to leave earlier :)

Hey Jonathan, I just threw out that time as an idea.  I'm still totally up in the air.  Just waiting to hear what the other's think.  I'd like to caravan, but it's really not a big deal either way.

Cool, would be more fun I think to caravan, but like I said, I am ok if most want to leave earlier too :)  I was thinking of getting a radar detector for the trip, but I just don't have the cash right now ;)  Evil evil tax nazis  :cry:  :evil:  :lol:

Here's a checklist for those bringing their cars to the track.  A couple good sites for anyone that thinks they'll track their car sometime.  I bookmarked them.

I have a radar that I wont be useing I just have to find the cigg lighter adapter, witch you are welcome to borrow.
Also rember if we caravan 2 way radios would also be a good idea. I also think that caravaning would be a ton of fun. From what I hear its about 5.5 hours to Albq. And if its going to be any thing like the COS drive it should take us about 5 hours or less. Just some thoughts.... :D

I cant wait.
Also I dont have a helmet, im not going to be driveing so its not a big deal but i assume that ill ride here and thare, so does anyone have a spare to loan?

I can still provide at least 2 2-way radios, with one stipulation, I get them back.  I still have a Kenwood 2-way floating out there from another road trip we did a bit back!  I will bring them Saturday to Jon's garage day.

5.5 hrs is making damn good time, if you make under 5.5 with a group and traffic you are doing great.

My own experince...... watch for cops around Walsenberg, Trinidad and Raton.  The north side of Trinidad there is almost always a State boy and also on the south side of Raton.  You can flat out fly over Raton Pass on the Colorado side (great set of turns to rally).  The very top has the port of entry for trucks and there is a radar up htere to check truck speeds.  It will set your radar off.  Once past there you are usually good until you get to the bottom of the pass.  

Please head my advise...I saw a new beetle pass me just outside Trinidad and get nailed hard by the state boy.  I was doing around 90ish and she passed me doing at least 110.  Johnny did the median u turn and had dust flying chasing her down.

Have fun and becareful!

Oh yeah, Helmets!

I used to have a spare, but now I don't.  A motorcyle helmet is acceptable for this event.

I'm getting really excited.... :onfire:

Rob's analysis of the speedtraps is excellent.  My wife got tagged in Walsenburg on our way up to the September GTG.

9 am or whatever you agree to, but let's agree on something. Caravan is a must.

Incidentally, I have one radio still in my car from last year September drive. I don't know whose it is. I don't think it's Kenwood though. I'll check.

I am most likely getting V1 before we leave for this and the ND charity trip. I recently got $300 ticket on I-25, so I will shell the money to prevent the tax collectors from future revenue.

It may be interesting because I have 5/4 court date. I am not sure, but I may be very close to 12 points after all is said and done. Maybe I'll just postpone the court date as much as I can so not to lose my DL. Shit.

Boris, please check.  I believe it was from the Setpember drive.  If it is a silver Kenwood and you are sure it is not yours, then use it for this trip and I will take a look at it when everyone comes back to see if it is mine.

Ouch on the ticket, hope you are not at 12 points.

Well Valentine 1 is on the way.

I will check on the radio. It is silver and I know it's not mine.

How about the Super 8 Motel- Rio Rancho ($41)
                     4100 Barbara Loop  Rio Rancho, NM 87124

or the Le Baron Courtyard and Suites ($43)
          2120 Menaul Blvd NE  Albuquerque, NM 87107

Are they farther away than the others you listed? Or not listed because they are horrible :P Was just curious :)

The ones I listed were because they were on the major freeway exits i.e. simple to find and get to/from.

The Inn at Paradise is like 5 minutes from my house.

The Super 8 on Barbara Loop is 10-15 minutes away, and a LONG way from the freeway.  You'd get off I-25 at Paseo Del Norte, then you'd drive almost to my house, then you'd head north another 10-15 minutes to get to Rio Rancho.

The Le Baron on Menaul would be 25-30 minutes from my house.

In order to get breakfast before we go (both Saturday and Sunday), we'll be getting up early, so I'd recommend someplace close.  The Inn at Paradise would be ideal.

The all-important FOOD POST:

Here's what I've come up with so far for food:

Friday evening - my place. I thought I'd cook burgers on the grill, or maybe chicken.  Let me know your preference.

Sat morning - Need to be at track by 7 AM, so breakfast at McDonalds (I40/Coors) at about 6:30 on the way to the track.

Sat Lunch - at the track, there is nothing.  We'll have to bring food or have someone go get something.

Sat Evening - I thought after the track time, we could all go to Kelly's Brew Pub for a round or two of beer.  The food is good, so we could eat there, too.

Sun Morning - I'm gonna cook y'all a good Tennessee breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits, and GRAVY - yum... gonna start cookin' at about 7.

Sun Lunch - the Oasis Cafe in Santa Fe - it will be the end of our mountain drive.

If you have other ideas please post!

Yep Pat I will bring mine for your car. Between that and the V1 hopefully it will help.. but whoever was talking about the airplanes this weekend.. it won't help us against that. Just K, Ka, and Laser..

I also have 3 radios I am bringing.

P.S. Rusty.. your plan sounds good. I'll volunteer to either go grab food for you guys or be the sandwich making bitch in the morning and bring coolers.. either way. Coolers with foodies and drinks are always nice to have at the track....

Sounds awesome  :thumbsup:  And that is freaking early!  8O  So I am gonna find the closest reasonable place to your place as I can, unless I can find a nice tent and sleeping bag pads to borrow, then I can "camp" in your back yard if all spaces aren't claimed  :P  This is gonna be so fun!!   :onfire:

Alright, as far as Friday night...well, if it's on the grill I'll eat it.  I love both chicken and burgers.
This plan sounds really good.  I'm especially looking forward to a breakfast of bacon and eggs drowning in a trough of gravy!
Is there any good place near the track to get something for lunch or should be bring down a cooler and make sandwiches or something similar?

Oh yeah, forgot to answer your question :P  I am in the same boat as Pat, burger, hotdogs, chicken, whatever on the grill is good for me :)  Will try and "clean up" my roomate's big cooler that has been sitting outside for a couple months  8O  so that I can bring it.
