Ahhhh, once again, I am booked for the Dragon the following weekend with a nefarious group of renegade Porsche drivers... I need to get those guys to synchronize with MSSD next year.

Sorry, Gang. I'll be taking part in HAHA (Hondas an Hour Away) with the family. I'm sneaking the Wife and kids up to Maggie Valley, NC (in the Honda CR-V) to take in some awesome Fall weather and colors.

Have fun and be safe ;)b

No joke, T! Sheesh... At least I was able to ride in Shadow the last time I made it up there MINI-less.

That's okay Janet, what kind of a guy wants to ride in a "Sparkling Silver" MINI anyways? :wink:

We might just see you guys at the Friday night picnic. After all, it's nearly in our back yard, so to speak. Bev just needs to change her schedule and we'll be there.

You can ride shotgun with me Pyro. I'll really push it knowing if I wreck there will be a paramedic nearby. Wait, maybe that won't work. :motoring: :-k
