That was handled quite well there Boomer. Yes, I was sick, but I was not the only one tryin to get warm last year. I even saw Team drivers in sweat shirts and jeans by the end of the weekend. It is actually warm outside, just AC was somewhat high at the Stardust. bring along a long sleeved shirt if you think it may bother you. Although coming from FL you will enjoy the fact there is basically no humidity!!

come on dude ??? I came from southern cali all weekend in shorts and t-shirts. You came from SLC UTAH where it snows man !!!! what kind of YETI are you



The yeti, also known as the Abominable Snowman, is a large primate-like creature supposedly living in the Himalayas. The Western name is derived from the Tibetan yeh-teh (transliterated: gYa' dred), "little man-like animal"; it is a false cognate with Old English geottan (or yettin in Modern English), an antiquated word for an orc or troll (see also jotun).

Most mainstream scientists and experts consider current evidence of the yeti's existence to be weak and better explained as hoax, legend, or misidentification of known species. Nevertheless, certain physical evidence, such as tracks and nests, have suggested to some that yeti is an unknown primate, a remnant hominid, or a type of bear, and the yeti remains one of the most famous creatures of cryptozoology.

The term yeti is often used to describe a number of very different reported creatures:

A large ape-like biped (that some suggest could be Gigantopithecus blacki)
Human-sized bipedal apes (the Alma and the Chinese wildman)
Dwarf-like creatures (such as the Orang Pendek).
The term is also often used to refer to reported ape-like creatures that fit any of these descriptions: for example, the fear liath may be referred to as the "Scottish yeti". The yeti is sometimes referred to as the "Abominable Snowman". This name was popularized by the press after a reporter related a mistranslation of a Nepali name for the yeti. Migoi is another name for such a creature.

I generally don't have a problem with being cold when I am prepared for it. Hell I prefer to ski in white out type conditions!! I was sick that week and the ballroom temp did not help. I was just the only one verbally complaining about being cold but I heard others wishin it was not as cold as well. It was not IIC's fault and I am not blaming any of those guys since they truely had no control over it. Plus, as I am sure Boomer can attest, I am not carrying any extra insulation here either!!

As for my screenname, I was not even thinking of the mythical mammal. I used to race mountainbikes and had a thing for Yeti Cycles frames, even though I never bought one. Their logo was pretty cool also!!!

I AM STILL GONNA PACK A WARM SHIRT!!!

I'm telling you, party, gamble, get no sleep after the races, then live on energy drinks during the race and you won't feel a thing!
