    I feel the need for full disclosure, my avatar is now outdated since I crashed 3 weeks ago.

    New avatar coming.

    Looking forward to seeing Haga race.

    Let's not forget:

    1. Olympics
    2. NFL training pre-season and fantasy American football drafts.

    3 (and lesser well known). I take a vacation ("holiday" for y'all across the pond). I'm thinking about driving west to El Paso for a bit.

    I've got plenty to do. :D

    Did you take a week off when you did? If so, I'd say yes.

    Nope , my actual holiday didn't include motorsport , did visit a real small car museum though, had a peel p50 inside , thinking of it I spend half that holiday on f1b forum

    And my other motorsport trip isn't really spectactular , 3 days in the rain expected

    Moral of the story schlot, there's more to motorsport than f1

    I've been through severe thunderstorms in two previous Spring vacation trips. Once, it rained hard enough to where I had to slow down to about 35 because I couldn't see a few feet past my front end.

    What's there to do in El Paso other than dodge bullets and avoid people who want to decapitate you?

    I am not a smoker, but all these ideas sound like nicotine patches. They might lessen the cravings, but they never really satisfy. There is nothing like the red lights going out, and the dash down to the first turn to settle the nerves and quench the thirst for the best racing in motorsports. And mind you I live in Southern California where the weather is phenomenal and there is always somewhere great to go within a 1/2 an hours drive.

    Yeah, you're the only state outside of Nevada and Arizona to outdo Texas, and I do not envy you in the least. :(
