Wendover


So Eric and I arrived at the Bonneville Salt Flats today.  We set up the pit and registered, but we could not go through tech because Len and the guys had not arrived yet.  They want all the riders and the bike to go through tech together.  By the time the guys arrived registration was shut down, so we will register and go through scrutineering tomorrow.  (Scrutineering is when they examine your bike and your safety gear to make sure that you meet their safety standards.  If you don’t meet their standards then you don’t get to race.) 

We checked into the hotel, actually, this year we are staying at one of the casinos.  Montego Bay, which is the most visually stimulating place I have ever been in my life.  The whole place is mirrors and neon.  I have gotten lost several times already.  But the rooms here are huge.  We all have palm trees in our rooms.

We ate dinner at the buffet.  It was yummy.  Dave played his first slot machine.  Jim gave him a dollar and Dave won $2.10.  He gave Jim back $1.05 and he kept $1.05.  It was a good day.

I need to get off line, because we need to be on the salt by sunrise.  Goodnight!
