I sent off a couple more Pics to our good buddy doug.

Round is about over, everyone is looking much better then yesterday. Fella's is still marshalling like the track isn't a ice rink, and almost ate it about 3 times.

Truhe and Fisher came off the track fully operational as did just about everyone else.

The surface is super soft so when guys "nose in" they make a large divot with a "lid". I'll try to get a pic, my camera is pretty hurting though. There is a short strait to a ski jump that lands in front of the sweeper, I'm guessing this will get fairly trecherous by the end of the day today.

There's a triple in the center of the track, you DO NOT want to crash there, seems noone can triple it consistently and the Single/Double is the safest but not fastest way. If you crash in the middle of, the marshal on either side has to climb a very slippery slope to get up to the car. I suggested providing a broom handle so they can just flip the cars over. Kenny B is taking that suggestion to the officials.

I can't get over this scenery, It's so nice up here. You can sit anyplace and just look out and see green mountains and clear skys.

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
This is what I was talking about.

next round of pics are on their way to Mr. Hay.

If anyone knows how to make it so I can post them myself, I'm happy to. The connection here is good, just when I click the paperclip on my screen here nothing happens.

First round just started, truhe had a clean run. But only race 3 up now. I'll try to get results after the round, but typically I never do....

The ATM is about 20-30 minutes down the hill at the post office. It works fine and if we had rented a car I could get down no problem. But we didn't so I can't.

Hopefully Team Ireland takes me to it again today...

Sup Charlie...Make sure you don't have a pop-up blocker, then click on manage attachments. Click browse and it should ask which folder to look....

That and change the setting in the camera to a lower resolution. There's a file size limit on here...I think it's 200-something Kb...otherwise, you have to play with the file in another program to make it small enough.

Keep it up, though! It's fun hearing about all the mud drama. Sounds like Revelations.

I did all of that. I can resize them in Painbrush fine, but it just won't do anything.

Anyone that can send an Email to [email protected] can I'll send them over to you as well. I'm sure doug is busy, and perhaps its getting late over there now.

1st round is almost over. I'll try to get standings.

the clay seems similar to my place but since its a covered track i dont have to worry about it staying muddy lol. if anyone can find out what the track content is i'd appreciate it.

there's a video posted on the oople/associatedlive.com site of a 4wd trying to take lap. break out the narrow rims and make those fronts like pizza cutters. works most times.
