    Hey guys, since I'm in Vegas until mid November I'd like to meet some of you. I could drive 3-4 hours if we could get something together. I was thinking about driving out to Blazer Bash but the wife will be coming in on Oct 2nd and we already had plans of meeting some other friends near Phoenix. I know the Victorville area is about 3 hours away so thats doable.

    Whatcha think /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I know on the 3-4 of Oct we (me, wife and son) will be about 30 min N. of Phoenix visiting but it doesn't have to be that weekend> I'm pretty much open to any dates between now and Nov 15th as long as it's on my days off. I'm working a 3 on / 3 off schedule so I can make it almost anytime

    The last two weekends of this month feature desert racing at Barstow ("Barstool" to some locals). B-sto is closer to LV than Victorville by about 20-30 minutes. Off at Outlet Center Drive just south of town on the 15, Start/Finish is just to the east of the fwy and fully rental car accessable if that's a worry.
    Check the links on race-dezert.com for MORE's and MDR's sites for more info.

    If I can steal a rental car it would be fun to meet an east coast guy on the west coast /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I'm an hour away from Victorville and another half hour I think away from Barstow. I have a commitment from the 13th of Oct to the 24th so those dates are out. Any other time as long as it's not the last saturday of any month is fine. Let me know. I can be there in no time...

    I'm scheduled to be here until Nov 15th. I just got a phone call for a part time job interview as security for a casino. I might as well do some work on all my days off. I have to fund my fuel injection setup somehow /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif We'll see what comes of that on Monday. Once I have an idea of my days off I can make some better plans.

    So JJ, what's happening at Bryce Canyon?? That's a few weeks too early for Blazer Bash /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif As of now, I get off Wednesday morning and dont have to be back at work til saturday night unless something comes of the p/t job. I think you're just heading out this way to see if you can win that car you didnt get last time /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Desert Races would be cool to watch too. Hafta check my schedule.
    Everything seems close enough so far. Will know more after Monday hopefully /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    nothing that I know of, thought about doing the ATV 3 hour trip one day /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Pop's is on vacation and that was one of the places that we've talked about. Only down fall is driving out there. So we might get a weeks stay in Vegas, fly out then rent a car and head over to the Canyon for the day and do the ATV trip /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I'd be up for meeting you /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.

    I'm in NW Phoenix, just off I17. Let me know if you get into town or nearby and we'll see if we can hook up.
