Hello from Monterey.
They put us in a hotel that's 50' from the crashing waves! Thank You whoever you are!
1. Helicopter should be in the air today. That's been the rumor.
Every night, the caravan members sit in the bar and watch the race coverage. By the 10th minute, everyone returns to their conversation and ignores the tube. Funny but true. Partly, it's because we just spent the entire day watching the race, so we don't need to see more of it. Partly because it's no fun to watch that coverage.
2. Had the rare privilege to follow George H through the TT yesterday. I was easily able to stay glued to Johann's wheel down the descents, but only because he's driving a rental Ford Taurus with low tired pressure. The Discovery car didn't make the trip to CA.
3. Meager crowds yesterday were to be expected. San Luis Obispo "should be rockin'".
Gotta run. Caravan is lining up.
