Ok guys, so how about a quick note on who is going?
When are you going? etc etc...

I am planning to head up early Friday morning and hang out all day (support Richard of course at one of the pits!)

Looks like I'm heading up from San Diego Thursday afternoon, and leaving Sat or Sun depending on what all's going on... Not sure yet if I'll be doing anything specifically useful for the race, but will be glad to help out wherever needed. I may be driving a camera crew around, but haven't heard back, so hopefully they found a more equipped rig.

I'll be there Sunday night through the following Sunday or Monday morning......depends on if the rig is still running. :)

You know. Sunday night, or first thing monday morning. Its a long drive, so I may just stick around the entire week.


.. I might bring a wrench or two with me, too.

You'll be easy to spot being the guy wearing black in the sea of yellow.





My attendance ain't looking good, work is still being bitchy with me (even after my marathon work weekend!). I *really* want to play with my Rebel on this one too!

I'm probably going to end up in some sort of working function out there but I don't know what yet. We are planning on pretty much showing up on Wednesday and figuring out where they still need people.

Please introduce yourself to me on the lakebed. The team has asked me to head up the pits and crew, and I really need all the help we can get.

Crew meeting Wed pm in the Team NAXJA pits, if you are there

Final Crew meeting Thursday late afternoon (post LCQ results) same location

Be prepared for early departure friday morning if you are working one of the remote pit locations

I am easy to find, tall, talk funny, drink beer, long hair and beard (unless I shave before then). White F350, White enclosed trailer, 30ft RV sponsored by Cruise America and Visa. Usually badgered by short red head who also talks funny. follow the trail of Fat Tire bottles

Easy. Have a friend that has both a great sense of adventure and an enclosed trailer that needs to earn money for its monthly payments. :D

Seriously, he and I have done a bunch of nutty towing jobs over the last 8 years. We made NJ to Reno, NV in 2.5 days...NJ to Daytona Beach, FL and back in under 35 hours...he digs this kind of stuff. For cost of fuel and beer he'll go just about anywhere.
