If I can find, rent or buy a small trailer I'm thinking I'll bring it up. Yeah, the truck is full with all the other stuff I bring along. It should be fine running off the generator. If I bring it I may try to get the generator on my way up and do them Wed so there's food done while everyone is setting up. About 6 hours so I figure Wed or Sat is best depending when everyone is getting in. May to make them once more at the house to get the recipe down.

Think Eric has an aussie grill still if Petit is in their world traveling Alaska cruising schedule. Don't think Tony's could have held another hot dog after the Mitty. At least without duct tape and lots of foil reinforcement.

And I'm guessing Tuesday will only be Miatas and whatever Conti/Lites guys are there early. No loud Lambos this year, and no idea who's replacing them although I'd guess a fancy Beetle race series. Would love to see some Lites guys trialling LMP3s but guessing that would be a private test day.

I'm planning on going but I haven't discussed it with my new boss since the interview. Hopefully, it won't be an issue.

Sorry, I did assume you'd be there without checking and was just thinking aloud. I don't have any plans yet for a trailer and have to see what the track would charge for it. Might be able to get it on the hitch rack but have a couple weeks to work on it. And a few weeks to test of the recipe again and make sure it's good.

Have a couple interviews myself this month so hoping there won't be any problems on the horizon here.

About that... It has rained across north ATL every day for the last month. It has been a normal, annoying, hot, Georgia summer here. It won't stop raining enough for me to mow the lawn or wash the truck. I keep hearing the drought talk, but I ain't seeing it where I live or work. I tell ya, the g̶r̶a̶s̶s̶ weeds are thriving.

That being said, I did go to Cleveland a couple weeks ago and it looked a little crispy up there. Hopefully the track has received the amount of rain (minus the storm where God tried to take me out again) that I have and it's nice and green.

I think the opposite happened a few years ago, if I remember correctly. You got all the rain and I had none.

No offense taken or intended. I've been under-the-weather this week and didn't even put that together. I just wanted to post and let y'all know I was still alive! Look forward to seeing you buddy!

Until last night, Athens was 8" behind on rain for the year (pretty sure I was 12" behind) We got half of that back yesterday.

Last 3 years, I either am constantly cutting grass or I'm looking at a brown yard.

My poor truck is the same way, crossing my fingers for Sunday but knowing my luck I'll get started and here comes the rain. 93 degrees and humid at 1115 am is just nuts so not getting washed today. And of course we get all the calls about why are my trees and shrubs brown/dead and tired looking.

We had our annual get together last week where the purpose is to start the logistics planning for petit.
It turns into beer and talking about decades of petit/sebring/daytona 24 stories.
So now it's time to start making check lists and spending 6 weeks thinking i forgot about something.

Meanwhile, my short bus and soccer mom cars get the 8 buck drivethru wash whenever it really needs it because I don't give a flying ....

I've already forgotten something, but broadrun will have some extras!

And Sunday was 95 and HUMID before the rains came so no wash again, this keeps up I'll end up at the track with a freshly washed truck like a fool.

Haven't quite started on the list yet but I'm sure this weekend will probably have a little thought toward checking everything. Luckily no replacements needed after the Mitty.

Looks like no ribs for Petit, hundred bucks even for a small utility trailer apparently. They'd be good but hundred bucks good? Nope, that they aren't. Have thought maybe a brisket the week before to warm on the grill, will have to read up and test it once maybe. But then a good excuse to make another brisket to me. Hope tickets come soon to confirm my Tuesday entry. And then get to my planning and checking the gear.

Hoping Joeb is staying above water this week and hasn't been washed away yet out there.
