They are winding down so I hope to get a couple days down time.
I had to go the Eglin Hobby shop this weekend to change fluid in my rear diff to see if I can get it running right.
Mama took the truck to Tampa for the week. I hate having to load it back to stock in case she has probs on the road.

How are you doing?
I've been good just adjusting to mississippi life. Is the track you mentioned in Holt? That is the track I'll be at on the 21st.

Here for another 1 1/2 years at least. Hopefully I'll be off to drill instructor school sooner than that though. I'm over in Gulfport now, let me know if you make it over to Biloxi to hit the casino's I'm just down the road

My indicator didn't show any activity on the site.......Sorry for not answering up.
Does the track have anything going on Fri/Sat nights?? I saw where they are having events or something on Sundays, but a local told me that was the test n tune day?!?!?!

Anyway, I got out of going North this next week so I get a couple more weeks here.

I plan on going to the craft shop tomorrow after getting the tires rotated and balanced, and doing some work to the truck.

I'm staying just down the road in Holt.

Pete, you still planning on being there the 21st?

There is NOTHING in Holt.
Crestview and Milton would be your best bet.
I'm at an RV park.
Not sure what's available on Base.

How busy is the RV park? I may see about renting a camper.

Thanks for the info on the helmets. The guy I talked to didn't say anything about that and I was kinda wondering.

I'm at Eagles Landing in Holt.
They usually seem to have 30amp sites available. Big pull through sites. Quite except for the fwy noise noow and again.

The subs on the project I'm watching are staying at a newer looking Best Western. I haven't heard anyone knock it. It's just off the fwy and 10 miles from the track. Looks nice.
