It appears Deb and I the first ones back from Nashville. Had loads of fun...TOO MANY cars to look at in one weekend...MILLIONS of parts...REAL GT-350's and TRANS-AM Bosses racing at full speed...the new FORD GT and Mustang GT...PERFECT weather...met Steve and Pam, Jerry and his wife, Frank, Big D (hardluck story there), Rob and KK, and Kedra...Oh, did I mention the CARS? Anyway, wonderful weekend, great event (except for having all of the non concourse show cars parked on gravel), and good company! Can't wait for the next one!

Sounds like great time and it's always fun meeting M&M people. I'll have to try and make it next year too.

Hey Craig, good to see you guys got in okay. I'm still here in TN, I'll be heading out at the crack of dawn tomorrow. Jerry, Vikki, and Lindsey also left earlier this afternoon for home...they split about 2 (local time).

Poor Don indeed...we rescued his truck and the car last night and got that all secured, he did get another radiator. I'll let him tell the whole story once he gets in. Heheh.

Oh, I rolled up to the show again today, and they were putting the late-models on the pavement leading up to the spectator entry today. I don't know if they were doing the same for the early models, but I thought it was nice that they did that.

I'll let you all know once I get back too. It certainly has been a blast of a weekend!

We made it back. WOW! That's all I can say. Too tired to go into any detail. There was too much there to take it all in. I have two tapes of video and two memory sticks of pics. Everyone we met were super people. Frank, Steve, Pam, Don, Rob, KK, Kedra, Craig and Debb, Mike and Joyce, Tracey, shoot just everyone! The track people were top notch fine helpful folks. They have a great facility. This thing needs a week or two, it's too big to see it all in 4 days.

Hey all! Nashville was a blast. Sorry I didn't get to meet all of you. We left early yesterday to get back and see our daughter. I didn't know how much I missed her until she squealed joyfully, "DA! DA!" and gave me a little hug.

There were so many cars that it was overwhelming. I think my favorite part was the racing. I could watch those Ponies all day long.

I want to give a big THANK YOU to Mike (kcode), Becky and Tracy for all their hard work as well as the rest of the "behind the scenes" folks. From a spectator/partcipant standpoint everything was great!

Checking in...

I got home about 6:15 this evening. The drive home just seemed more grueling than heading down...I don't get it. But, I made it, and I'm beat.

I just pulled the pictures off my camera, and they came out okay. I so wish the fence wasn't in the way of the shots of the cars running on the track. But what can ya do (well, short of buying an insanely expensive camera with amazing zoom capability ). I'll get the pics resized and posted somewhere as soon as I can...got a bit to do, including washing the car again! All those darn bugs splattered all over the bumper...ugh...

Once again, it was awesome to finally meet everybody! Look forward to it again sometime!

I got home Sunday night after a nice dinner with KK, Rob, Ked, Big D, Steve and Pam (and my girlfriend, Rebecca) at The Cock of the Walk. I had to get up at 3:30 Monday morning to go to work for a 12 hour shift.

If you didn't know it, I was the PA Announcer for the event. I was tied to my post in the middle for ALL FOUR DAYS! Even my toungue got sunburned.

Glad everybody got home safely.

I don't know why, but everytime I got a call from one of you I had just left where you were, or you just left where I was. I had an unexpected friend show up so I felt obligated to spend time with him. Yeah, I know, I shoulda drug him along.

I at least got to meet 4 more M&M'ers and catch up with some that I had met before (Mike and Tracy). I finally met Becky. I don't see how she keeps Mike in line. My heart goes out to her!

Heck, if I met you all at once I wouldn't have anything to look forward to! When is the next show???

Wait till Don gets back to here his story.. Heck,, I was looking forward to reading the REST OF THE STORY..

You guys could tell it better than I..

Craig,, wish we could have spent a bit more time together.. Hopefully there is a better side to me than the stressed out hitchhiker you saw.. Still was good to meet you and your wife..

Traci,, it was good meeting you,, and finding out the true story behind your pen name..

Just like Mike & Becky,, you will have to come to a M&M gathering and relax and enjoy your self..

The Catfish was great..

Don
