    Re: What is a typical afternoon on the tour

    Some nights you may have stuff to do too, like test the line-lock.
    Oh yes if I get my motor back in the Monte Carlo this year there will be plenty of line lock tests to perform. Also remember in Springfield Mo. there is always a cruise up and down Glennstone where all the hotels are. The locals line the streets to watch everyone. We go up there every year for St. Mach Nats and cruise both nights. Cops are all right as long as you don't get stupid!

        We know how you feel, John. :P We've always done the longhaul when we've gone on PT, this year will be the first one we can't. Too many other commitments.

          Let us not forget to get all the smoke out of the new tires.
          That's all good, but don't let the smoke out of any wires...... :

            Hopefully this year will be different but in years past when we got the cars done litterally in the wee morning hours of the day of. The power tour served as the shakedown run. Those typical days were Drive the car, work on car, get to venue, eat, go to hotel, work on car, drink some beverages, sleep, Repeat, Repeat, Repeat, Repeat, Repeat, Repeat, Repeat, Repeat, by the time we were on the return ride home everything was fixed. ;D

            The car I am taking this year has been done for some time now. Knock on wood. Hopefully there will be less work on car time and more Drinking/sleeping/relaxing time.

              a typical day can be what ever you want it to be. that's one of the great things about the power tour.... there are no "must do" . you can leave early and get to the venue late. you can leave late and get to the venue early. you can take their route or one of your own. sometimes we stayed at the venue grilling brats and drinking beer (we had a DD) till they kicked us out at dark. if you ask 100 people what they have done on a particular day on power tour, you will get 100 differant stories. that's what makes this such an incredible happening.
