Wow, must be the jet lag talking.....

Truhe Fischer and myself are the 3 "novak" amigos. I'm looking foward to meeting up with the rest of the novak guys this morning. It's 6AM, I'm only up cause the Truhe Lumber Yard was open this morning cutting some logs.

How do you post pics, the little paperclip doesn't work, and the attach button on the bottom doesn't do anything.


thats funny." Lumber Yard" maybe look around for some breathe right strips there Charlie. Good Luck to you and your racers for Novak i hope it is a great result for Novak. Good Luck tgo all USA racers and team AE.

I simply moved out of the lumber yard area. We got two rooms, but the 2nd had no beds, and nice man pointed me to the 1st room for sleeping. Well, I dug around the 2nd room and found the bed/matresses. So I slept good last night. Woke up to rain at about 4 this morning, sounded like it was pouring outside still. When we went to sleep it was raining, so I'm very anxious to see the track this morning.

They have internet at the track so I'm taking my Laptop with today.

Sent a few pics over to doug, nothing exciting really. Yesterday was a bunch of sitting around preparing. Tire gluing and what not.

My most exciting part of the day was dinner and breakfast. We were a bit worried about the food situation, but the couple that runs this hotel (Tsuranoya??) is on top of it. We had a huge breakfast, and a bigger dinner. Eggs, ham, toast, banannas, rolls, "breakfast salad". All very western style. Even Fischer ate it, he's a picky on.

Dinner was some Minestrony tasting soup, lots of wonderful rolls, a seafood apetizer, salad, a steak (well sorta) Corn, french fry wedges. It was good stuff. I made a "happy plate".

Track opens up in a couple hours I'm sure it'll be good and soggy.

Yeah, me too. We're kind of in a remote area... racing remote controlled cars.....

But up on the Mountain top here, supplies and establishments are fairly limited. I've been trying to get a ride down the mountain for a day now, need to find an ATM that will take my card, so does truhe. We slacked in the airports and didn't get any cash, as I've never had any problems with this in the past. Leason learned I suppose. But there is an Off Day in the middle so hope is not lost. Plus Uncle Billy has money we can borrow.

Good luck finding an ATM that takes american cards. I was told you might be able to use the machines at a 7-eleven.

So you are telling us that this track's location is so remote that you need to take a long journey to find an ATM? omg.........

They don't have curbs, they have these crazy ditches....

There are Circle K's down the hill, but getting a ride is another story...... Luckily my buddy Cedric from France's group has a rental, its raining so hopefully we'll have some time.

It rained all night, and on and off this morning. It's kind of drizzling now.

Leon- You get Nothing.

Hodapp- Thanks Bud. Its not that far, maybe about 20-30 minutes. Oh, nothing on the hill takes credit cards either. It's awesome.
