getting ready for the next round of hare scrambles, i'm trying to bring a couple of the other Texas Tornado Boot Camp guys with me this time.

I'll see if we can talk Colin Edwards into coming out and joining us or at least bring his son Hayes out to race with the adults he may be able to show us a thing or two with his bad .

TX Tornado Boot Camp...James' home away from home.

I'm not sure of sleeping arrangements either, but my grandpa lives 56 miles from Alto, so I may go see him for a visit....but that usually means a trip to the local beer joint which ain't a bright idea the night before a race....we'll see tho, it's been known to happen.

son, racing both days? Nice!!! you pitching a tent? I plan on being out there Sat afternoon (gonna bring a youngster too to get him hooked) after we mow some 15 acres at grandpa's. I plan on camping in a tent....Shiloh has showers....they ain't Hilton showers, but it's clean running water....and they have water/elec hook ups too...not sure on the charge for that...I think it's separate from TXORR camping fees.

thats awesome,, i'm bringing my trailer so we'll have a place to sleep... i'm going to do my best to race both days yes,,, i figure if i sign up and pay for it, i kinda have to do it huh?

i'm bringing Mike Myers from TTBC with me and maybe at least one other instructor( Shea Fouchek) plus, we may have a couple past guest from TTBC show up, i spoke with them at our trackday at Cresson this past Saturday.

I asked Mike to speak with Colin about coming out but, he's getting back home on Tuesday from a long stint of traveling and testing, so we'll see about that one, it would be awesome if he were to show up and kick on that TTR125

SWEET....if there was only one property I could I ride all season, this would be it. LOTS and lots of elevation...this is a typical downhill climb out there....lots of red clay and rock boulders too. Notice the direction I'm looking...Navigating downhill some more!
