Two items in the works:
1. I'm going to Bandemere Speedway (Denver) on April 11 to run in an
SCCA Solo II (Autocross) event. Went last month, and although I did not
run (still wearing Blizzaks), I had a great time checking out the
scene. You do not have to be an SCCA member. The event is open to the
public and there are few "requirements" i.e., tires with "serviceable"
tread, vehicle in good mechanical condition (no serious leaks, nothing
falling off), and a seat belt. Helmets are required, but loaners are
available. This is a great opportunity to see just what you and your
car are capable of without having to worry about traffic & the
constabulary. It's pretty much an all day affair. You will get a
minimum of three runs through the course. If anyone is interested in
joining me (to race or watch), or if you want more info, reply to this
2. I'm putting together a trip to Telluride over Memorial Day weekend.
Tentative agenda is:
Saturday - Travel to Telluride via
Black Canyon of the Gunnison
Sunday - Spend the day in Telluride
(golfing, hiking, biking, shopping, etc.)
Monday - Return Home via west loop
of San Juan Skyway through Durango (see
attached map) OR travel complete San
Juan Loop and return via Gunnison
Need to know soon if anyone is interested. I'll work out a few good
lodging options and will advise those interested so we can make
If anyone has done this already and can offer some advice, it's
welcomed. Also, if you've got other road trip ideas, pass them along.
Waiting to here from you . . .
