Happy Thanksgiving everyone. It's a day late I know but I've kind of lost track of time. A week ago this past Wed started a 12 day run out at the track. I'm still out at thew track!
The frist weekend (Wed-last Sunday) was Street Car Super Nationals. We had a couple of guys staying with us (one from Hawaii and one from Cali). So while we were at the track everyday, we did go home every night. But it was long nights at the track and then back out to the track early every morning. After Sunday we just left everything (trailer and all) at the track. We had one night at home alone (Monday night). Then back out to the track this past Tuesday. Tuesday night we went home for the night but since then we're staying at the track, in the trailer. It's working out OK except Chuck has a head cold and sleeping in the goose neck "bedroom", he was having problems breathing. So he made up the drop down bed (it's our table set, table top drops down and the cushions make up the "mattress") . So I'm sleeping in the "bedroom" and he's not. We went home to grab a shower, more clothes, and his C-Pap last night, so he was breathing better.
We had a nice Thanksgiving in the pits. Two other families brought turkey and trimmings and we brought a rib roast dinner (I ordered it from Fresh and Easy, already cooked!) Besides the rib roast it came with 3 sides (I chose Mashed taters, gratin taters, and honey butter baby carrots). It also cam with beef gravy and a huge pumpkin pie. Plus we had more desserts. Tiramassue, Red Velvet Cheesecake, Apple pie, and asst cookies and candy. We had plenty to eat! We had quite a few people (mostly out of towners) join us. It was great!
I added Christmas lights of my gold cart and I'm wearing my Santa hat. I'll add a picture at the end of this of me.
As for eating...it's not been good. But I am trying to do some walking. We don't have the bathroom installed in the trailer yet and no running water, but we're pitted near the bathrooms at the back of the pits, so I'm doing some walking (picture me in the middle of the night...all bundled up in my slippers, headed tot the ladies room!). We do have heat in the trailer, which is a good thing. So I'm doing some walking and a lot of eating! I'm going to have re-focus after this weekend for sure!
Anyway...I just wanted to checking here...here's that pic of me in the pits, Chuck took it today.
And a funny!!
