    Thanks Tdub.. "camping" out in K Falls tonight, TRYING to get sleepy! so I can get out early tomorrow morning.. Ever since I was able to remember bed time, I've had a hell of a time getting to sleep. As an adult, this malfunction really raises its head whenever I've got something on a burner that is not yet completed... like, a trip to RENO...

    A little bit past 11:00, news on, a couple of brews in my belly and I should be pretty damn tired and sleepy..

    I'm not.. I'm wide ass awake thinking about Thom and his boys and gals trying to catch up on much needed sleep and get the racer to RENO, the new rare bear crew trying to tie up their loose ends and test what truly is a quite new Rare Bear (lots of changes here make me see this airplane as almost "new"..) Hearing news that our friend Will Whiteside has lost his ride... Dreaming of Matt Jackson letting Will fly a couple laps in the Witch..

    I could go on, but the thread drift would then resemble the topic drift that keeps me awake even on a normal night! My brain, for some reason, likes to think up problems and attempt solve them while I'm trying to detach and go to sleep, ya think this time of year feeds it (my brain) a few new scenario's to ponder?

    Phew.. anyway, nice to see that we've got us some racing hardware on the ramp, don't see nuttin' that's gonna stop the 50th anniversary of the National Championship Air Races at Reno, Nevada from being the best damn airshow this year, and for several years running!

    Get some good sleep Thom, find the right "zen" spot to be to make the trip comfortable, don't take any chances, your way here is blessed, as long as you are careful.

    You and your team have become legendary this year and last.. fly safe my friend!

    Wayne, I feel ya! How can you not get amped for Reno! It's the high octane junkies version of Burning Man! It's an annual gathering of tradition, speed, power, wealth, determination and guts of epic proportions!
