Okay, first off, I'm only doing the 85, but that's really because I don't feel like starting so early or starting with several THOUSAND others. . .bah.
Anyway, Scott (mtv8dmarine) and I started out yesterday, driving from Claremont (near Ontario CA) to Tucson, stopping for lunch in Phoenix with his cousin (spunky, cute. . .who woulda thunk they were related! ) and arriving in Tucson around 4:30.
We headed straight to registration, so we could get that out of the way before Friday when everyone else was going to show up. It's NIIICE registering when nobody is around! Reg went smoothly, picked up our swag, all that.
Went back to the hotel, made up a bunch of spaghetti (nice being in a studio - and having a room-mate willing to cook) and then headed to Dairy Queen for a Reese's Blizzard (mmmmmm, DQ. Not a lot of those near me. . .)
So - woke up today, with the plan to go to the Pima Air Museum (pretty cool - with a bus tour through the boneyard, which is really pretty cool) .. . walked outside and HOLY COW. . . WIND. (that IS a four-letter-word, btw...) I sincerely hope the wind dies down or tomorrow is going to suck.
