Petit Le Mans 2018

I just ordered a new tent, so my preparations have officially begun! Don't know if I'll be bringing my brother again this year, but I'll be there on Wednesday evening.

Anybody else start prepping yet?

Haven't even thought about it yet, new tents were purchased but tiny backpacking tent for her trip. Haven't found any new toys to buy for the camp yet, might get a new flag pole so we can truly take over. But I am running out of space in my truck so I can't get many new things.

Although I'm thinking some time soon the tow behind smoker of the father-in-law might just be brought out for Petit. It's a beast and think I can grill in it as well.

Tow behind cooker of any type sounds awesome

That's awesome. From self sufficient to tow behind cooker. Just remember, when giving me crap, I didn't ask you to bring all this stuff, but glad you're (for the timing being) single and childless. Weird things happen after that....

Better than this mythical camper of the Fields I've heard tell of around the campfire I'm guessing.

scottypinthemix should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
ok, wow.
I thought I was alone in this. Sad part is that the last days I took off from work were for Sebring.
Needless to say, I'm already jittery for PLM.

I have mellowed the last two years, think the gf (fine Field, fiance now) has kept me busy and distracted with moving and wedding planning instead of planning camping at Petit and the Mitty as with previous years. Easier to plan and plan when you're a bored single guy after work

It's easier to do a lot of things as single guy after work.

I went up to Cabelas and dropped some coin on a cot.
I've been sleeping on air mattresses for 20+ years & I'm over it.
Got this one on sale for $139 a couple weeks ago. It's so comfortable I feel like a moron for never having bought something like this in the past.
https://www.cabelas.com/product/CABE...9.uts?slotId=2

I'll be up there pre-dawn on Wednesday

I'll wave to you from the comfort of my tent, and my Cabelas XL Outfiiter cot, inside the track as you are sitting in the line in your car. Been there and done that long enough and can't really sleep in my current truck so Tuesday arrival and special pass it is, plus extra track viewing time. Yeah it's only CTSC and Miatas on parade but it's cars and race fuel fumes so better than working
