Whoa. Flagpoles are pricey. Think I'll strap a 30 ft stick of conduit to the top of the car.

Yeah, and they've gone up since I got mine. Company I got it from was in Amazon but no longer and closest I found was over 100 last week so was still looking.

ESM racing but Patron would work too, tried to 'borrow' one last year at night practice and carried pliers in my pocket but apparently that was not an original idea on my part.

I just found out I might be bringing my brother this year. He lives in Denver and hasn't been to Petit in 10 years. I was drunk last weekend and texted him to tell him he should come. I didn't think he would be able to on short notice, but he is checking to see if he can take work off!

In an odd coincidence, I saw my brother this past weekend, and he mentioned he's going to try and come. If he does, we'll make sure he brings his "coffin" tent with him.

Did anyone get a picture of that last time?

In another odd coincidence, I also got drunk last weekend. Golden Monkeys. Ever had them? They are STRONG!

Even stranger would have been calling or seeing my brother since I've never had one.

Anyway. I'll be at Petit as well. Likely just on Friday and Saturday and not spending the night, just driving back and forth from home both days.

Will be driving up to VIR at the crack of dawn this Sunday.

I like Belgium Style Tripels. Had Southern Prohibition Co's (plus a little bourbon on top) this past weekend camping with the family. 6 pack for 9. Not the best, but yeah, they'll knock you down.

North Coast Brewing has a good one, too:

Hope your G'ville brothers are heading down, too.

Enjoy VIR. Need to work that one out one day...

I just found out you have a brother. I figured you as an only child.

Beat me to it. I saw it on FB. That's the backside of vendor village / top of the hill.
https://www.facebook.com/RoadAtlanta...type=3&theater

I'm divided. Great for getting heavy equipment / trucks in and out and nice when there's some precip but yet another paved portion of the earth to make things warmer (locally for sure).

EDIT: And that's PAVING. Not repaving. They can stop that. Build proper comfort stations, please.

JH - send a letter.

At first glance I thought it was a repave of vendor village. Lots of bare dirt there.....

Seems as though some of the comments Facepage mimic ours here: better facilities would be more desirable for your long time patrons.

Road Atlanta posted this today. Looks awesome, minus the visit Florida sign.
