Oh crap!  There is a good one out there.  I think Treeman used it at Pocono.  May have been for a Droid though.

You'd better win 4-5 trips so you can bring wild hogs with you.

Awesome looking track!  I would love to get in some time on that.  It looks like it would be a lot more challenging than the go-kart track at Lime Rock...

Looks like everywhere around here requires a roll bar in the car - sucks.   :gaah:

Try trolling the Miata forum.  A lot of those guys like to do track events and lack rollcages, and if their numbers aren't where they need to be they might let you sneak in. :thumbs:

And I can fit in the overhead bin.

I've been good! Just working like crazy so I can make the trip back whenever you guys head that way as well ;).  Hopefully I won't have to catch a flight back at 5am the next time around.

As for the Romanian moonshine... I finished it atop a Dallas building as per Bogdan's request.

That jug was empty when I shipped it to you!  Now if it was the "water" bottle I might believe you.

After a day of driving in the mountains with that corn cob "cork" I was surprised there was anything left in the jug.

I can't believe how drunk I was by 11am on the day of the wedding.

That was the first time I ever had whiskey for breakfast

No shit
and we are not even talking about Critterman's inability to use a tablet or smartphone.

and when in Rom-ania, you do as the Romanians do. 
 :D
That was an epic 36 hours.
Hell, that was an epic entire trip  I'd love to go back.

Does Critter do anything else then driving, riding and supervising?  :rofl:

Just a small idea, you have direct flight from Philly to Brussels, we do some things around here depending on the period:
- July - MotoGP at Assen (including Amsterdam)
- August - F1 (including Brugges)
- any other weekend - Nurburgring (can't say what might include)

After few days in Belgium, we take a low cost flight up to romania (2h) and spend some time there .... with a day at the track.

How that sounds? :devil:
