Good luck with the leg / ankle / foot. I recall the days when we used to be able to get a truck out and drive places....
Thank you its my foot broke 6 bones in it I had been having issues with it and actually got a stress fracture at sebring and walked it off and then the 4th of july beach trip found a hole and it was history. As for driving around that was before my time unfortunately I'm 29 turning 30 next month but my dad owned a grand national car in the mid 80's before I was born (he still followed it) so I was kinda raised around circle tracks and started racing myself and then my dad passed away and was struggling and fed up with the politics, money and cheating and started getting into sports car racing around the merger and been hooked since. As a matter of fact I ran a legend car at Lanier a half dozen times before it closed.

At 8 wandering around looking lost might have gotten you coffee and free smells of baking breakfast. Sadly always up with the sun when camping but it does mean the rest of them wake to something baking or smelling good.

And it's just a facade. But at 6'7 and 300 even a smile can look mean.

Good lord you are big you tower over me (5'8) and I'm pretty sure I would have noticed you Thursday morning was my first time there and parked in that lot and cut up threw the camping area walking thinking I could walk the fence to spectator hill and that didn't work so back to the car and tried the parking cut out on the other side and walked all the way up there to find out there was parking there.

P.S. Road Atlanta turn 4 regulars I parked in that spot y'all where talking about my first day at the track last year and I'm pretty sure I walked straight threw y'alls camp ground to trackside to get a idea of where I was at
No matter where you park you'll have to try and stop by and say hello. Andrew described himself so you'll know you're in the right place if you see a giant. The rest of us will probably just look hungover.

I haven't, but I've walked plenty of tracks just as steep as RATL speaking of which, I've just got back from Spa- walking up Eau Rouge and along the Kemmel straight takes the same amount of energy as a whole lap of Silverstone or Sebring

My 1 year old gave my phone a bath tonight. It mostly still works, but no audio, and I can't hear people if they call on the phone.
