Trying to get ready for tomorrow

I copied this from my post in the TTD section, I just didn't want it to go un-noticed.


guys if I take

-bike
-ramp
-umbrellas
-ice chest
-water
-snacks
-shoes
-some tools
-gear

should I be good? I know Irak said he would "babysit" me and help with things like tire pressure and what not...I just don't have a lot of help right now with all my family being out of town, and I've actually been sharing a home with family since the hurricane so this is all kind of frustrating getting everything ready to go I'm borrowing a trailer as it is because I don't have anyone to help me load it into a truck that I don't have either lmao. I'm bringing Cindy (zAguilera) but I don't think she can help with the physical part much, she's kind of sissy

I don't plan being underprepared, I just may not be overprepared

I've been doing this for about three years now and still can't get a good nights sleep the day before an event... Don't worry, you'll be fine! There will be plenty of people at the track to help you out should you need something. Irak is a good friend of mine, he's been out to the track numerous times and knows the routine, he'll be able to get you through the day...
