    I sat in and among a fantastic group of Kiwis in Section 3 for the 2017 Gold final and had the time of my life. Those folks were a ton of fun, laughed and joked the whole time, and felt like life-long friends by the time it was over.

    Hey Zak... I talked with a couple of fans at the races from Australia... they were awesome! BTW: I know you're from New Zealand - but maybe you help me understand why they referred to their home country as "the land of no".
    They told me that it was like... "oh, that looks like fun!" - "Noooooooooooooooo".
    They also added that although the exchange rate is killing them - they were having the time of their lives. Nothing like air races happens down under.

    Great to put a face to the name Mark! The Miss A pit was already on my To Do list so I'll keep an eye out for you.

    Well Zac - I'm certainly looking forward to meeting you at the races. In fact, since I've been away from the races for 20 years, it's going to be a lot of fun putting all these new names with new faces. You know where I'll be, by the Miss A trailer supporting my team... come by and say hi! I'll be sure to introduce you to the team & Brent. Since you were so kind to let us know who to look for, I guess it's only fair to give you a peek at the old mug so you can recognize me. I'll be at Stead from Sat 9/10 until Mon 9/18... again, looking forward to meeting you & everyone this year - it's gonna be awesome!!!!!

    I have the motorhome all packed and ready to go. All I need to do is connect the tow car and head out.

    I'm planning on departing pre-dawn on Sunday morning, arriving at the Optimist lot late Sunday afternoon. A few of us are going to be down there the whole week. My wife and some friends are going to be arriving on Thursday.

    I am a bit bummed that neither of my sons will be able to join us this year. They've grown up at the air races, and they wanted to be there with their wives, but they could not get the time off this year. Since it's the last year, they really tried, but it just didn't work out.

    Had major issue with motorhome today (broke a bolt in the extend/retract system pinion on one side of a slider) opened up the panel to speed up the process for the $200. per hour emergency repair guy and saw the missing bolt... managed to stop the visit before he spent any time getting here and couple bucks worth of bolt and nylock nut and we're golden! Took me several hours to get it diagnosed and fixed (myself) sooo... I may be far enough behind with stuff I needed to get done today that I didn't.. trying to get out of Dodge by noonish to make the 6-7 hour trip to K-Falls.. If we don't make the noon deadline which puts us there before sunset (we don't drive at night anymore... both over 70 yr) we will have to put off departure until Saturday AM.. Diesel over 5 bucks right now... gonna take me about 100 gallons to get there... OUCH!!!! Whaddya gonna do

    I have friends with a box seat they have been attending for quite some time. I bought a seat from them before it was announced that Reno was ending. My last trip was 2004 (I think). Will be there Wednesday afternoon through Monday morning. Staying downtown.
