    Going to Bonneville - Speed Week August 10-16, 2019

    Just got a note from the new boss of Impound and they want me back! So for the 6th. Speedweek, I'll be there. See y'all in Impound.

    So who is going?

    We had a few in Impound - like maybe a total of 10 or 12 cars for the whole week. This is NOT normal! The bike folks had a few more but they were way behind their usual numbers, too.

    From other reports I've read, there were records set despite the poor condition of the salt and George Poteet still ended up with Top Speed of the Meet.

    Great to meet you, too, Jason! Folks, he seems pretty sane considering he's one of "US".

    I ended up at the Golden Nugget tonight in my Hudson. Saw Dan and Jason. Fun!
    Was great to finally meet Dan and to catch up with Jim and all his amazing road trip adventures.

    That looks like a sunburn waiting to happen. Wish I was there but with more clothes on

    Yup. Special high speed compound and, more important, doesn’t leave black stripes on the salt

    I work in Impound so I'm pretty much always there. Please don't take it personally if I don't have much time to talk as I AM working when there! I'm always up for a dinner someplace in town so we can get together and hang out, swap lies, etc. after hours.

    Safe travels, Dan.

    Where do you usually hang out? Pit area, starting lines, ...?
    Irene and I will arrive Sunday afternoon. We might meet you. Stay cool :-)

    Plane ticket in hand (well, the print out of the online reservation), bags almost packed, rental car all lined up (I have my sources) - I'm ready to go. See y'all Friday PM.

    Studemax has the program. I live on caffeine-free Diet Coke and it's been OK out on the Salt but I wouldn't RECOMMEND it! I have 2 Diet Cokes going at all times - 1 to drink and 1 in the cooler. It warms up before I get to the bottom of the bottle so I switch them as it warms. A foam fast food cup keeps it cooler so that's another tip.

    Don't mention your bucket list! Real Salt Dogs will tell you it's not a bucket list thing it's a way of life! They WILL tease you about it! All in all they're a great bunch of folks. The Mexican restaurant out by the airport looks a bit funky but has good food and is (relatively) cheap. The Red Garter has cheapest food of the casinos which is weird as they're all owned by the same group. Don't miss the car show just over the state line! It's on in the evenings and while there may be a few cars there all week the real show is over the weekend.
