Petit Le Mans - Road Atlanta - Oct 4-7 2017

I know it's a bit early, but we've got some inquiring minds and I'm willing to assist.

Much like Sebring, the infield parking pass would be worth it at Road Atlanta. You will have the freedom to bring a little more gear with you, if staying offsite, but you may have some difficulty finding parking close to the trackside on race day. You'll still be able to find a spot.

I believe the parking at Lanier (circle track across the highway) is still free and you'll have access to a tram (stops are red dots on track map). It gets all around the track and the walk from the furthest tram stop (spectator hill) to Turns 6&7 is probably the easiest walk

Two months away. Need to order my tickets and no, I don't plan on searching for the rest of my tickets for a discount. I can only find about a dozen

Hope to see CanAmMan again. He's been quiet around these parts.

Got my hard card last spring like an adult. I might even hit the track again for some Fall Historics and spread some clover seeds to clean up the mud pit a bit before Petit.

May actually test a couple recipes to make a savory bread pudding for breakfast instead of my usual potato breakfast. And yes, there will be cinnamon rolls and biscuits.

Not mud. It will remain dry.

I figured, bacon, bread, egg, herbs would definitely get a thumbs down and thrown away straight off

Slacker, think of all that sweet PC and GT3 cup practice you'll miss. Some of us are dedicated and will be there Tuesday noon or so because is tastier at the track. Might even bring a brisket for Wed night dinner, just so there's none left for late arrivers.

I'm over 35. I demand over 2 wks paid vacation when I start anything. I've earned it and don't give a damn who I earned it with.

That's free 'earned' time, think between actual vacation and comp time it's about a month or so paid time off after 1 year, instead of my 2 weeks after 5 years at the last job

I got to write our company's employee manual and wore flip flops into the office yesterday.

NONE of this has NOTHING to do with NO PLM (triple negative goes positive).

Who else is going? Tickets are going fast I hear

joeb, over / under for haircuts on the trip east, assuming you are coming and hope you are.

I'm thinking the early line is 3, depending heavily on road trip food quality. I reserve the right to add 1 for each mention of taco bell, possibly fried chicken shacks as well.
