Friday - just got off the phone with the Engineer. He said it will be ok - there is just no safety margin. If the wind blows to much the anchor bolts could break out of the concrete. I will call Kinsley concrete after Friday when I will have a better idea of the exact concrete strength. I am thinking I will have to live with it but I will discuss it with Kinsley Friday and see where I get.

They do still have a great rock and bowl at Palymyra. A nice arcade is fun. I'm not too good at many of the new games but at one time me and a buddy where really good at that Dungeons & Dragons game withe Dirk the Daring. It was the first really animated game that I remeber. Then they came out with Space Ace a few months later. I know when we where at the shore on vacation and went to Wildwood that was the big game. Everyone hung around that game. Man I must of had n\know life but it sure was fun.

Steel hasn't started yet but insulation got there today.
Man 5000 pounds of insulation is a lot.

My concern at this point is I can't get anyone to get me clay.
It's all too frozen. The middle of the building is about 8" of solid ice. With the rain we had the water didnt have any place to go. It couldn't go down......it's frozen and it couldnt run over the top of the poured walls.

We may start racing on dirt untill the temp warms up enough for the excavators to go back to work. I have found a couple sources for clay but it's all stuck in the ground. The one contractor that did try to dig last week broke teeth off his backhoe bucket and quit.

Also it is easier for me to update the web site instead of trying to email everyone updates, comcast only lets me mail 15 people at a time, anyone know a way around this?
keep an eye on it I will update it every week.

Looks extremely good Chris. I am looking forward to making the trip up there to race. This is great for the whole east coast.
