    If I were a morning person, it might be kind of cool to be woken up by a horde of performance go-karts screaming in laps around my house. :angry1:


    The city apparently puts on a go-kart grand prix. The course apparently runs around the corner I live on, since most of the course involves the college. These go-karts apparently hit 50 mph down the length of two blocks. Apparently it takes a full day to set up some orange plastic net fence and hay bales, so we haven't been able to get a vehicle in since the day before yesterday.


    If I were a morning person, I might not be tempted to aim for the go-karts...

    Alright, so aside from the early morning crap, this is kind of cool. I'm getting lots of pics and videos I'll share when I can.

    I guess this goes till 4pm. :doah:

    Shift cars later, that will be hitting 70-80 in front of my house. :D

    we used to have a race downtown Elkhart. the back straight was long enough that the shifter karts got up to 125-130. those things are a blast to drive!

    The best part is that you don't have to pay to see it. A lot of people pay good money to see those shifters run, and you get it right in the front yard.

    I'd probably be interested under different circumstance, but it's just a huge nuisance for me. Can't sleep through it, can't get to my house without walking a few blocks and waiting for a pause in the races, can't get a vehicle to my house, street cleaners just ran by a couple hours ago. :rolleyes:

    I'm leaving town. There's a wedding at the beach Sunday, so I'm heading out Saturday morning. Packing my **** Friday night, and crashing at my aunt's. She's leaving to the beach for a wedding Sunday. :haha: We'll be a few minutes from each other, but she'll be out there all week, so I'm taking care of her animals.


    Hopefully it doesn't piss all weekend.


    Cheerful little peckerhead, aren't I?

    Oh **** that. They can find a real track to run that **** on, I'd take knuckled head through their focking hay bails and orange fence. That would piss me off to no end, something would be lit on fire in protest. :mad: :mad:

    They have cops do security to make sure people don't wander into traffic.
