Cool POST WOW at ACC aka Grasshopper is a genius

It was HOT and it was awesome!!

It was sooo HOT until Terra told me about the pool...

Grasshopper brought this little pool and filled it with cold water, and put it in the shade.
Terra showed me how she got in there with her underarmor and i followed.

WOW. WOW. It cooled me down instantly, and i 'jumped' in twice between sessions, and i was like new!!

Nick, it's your own fault, but from now on, you have to bring it to the track

Great day, great riding, very few red flags!!

Thanks Nick Amelio for putting up an awesome event, like always!!!

Thanks Grasshopper! Loved the pool!

Thanks Nick A. for a great track day with a wide open track , and for your invaluable tips in dealing with T2. Thanks to Jason for having a book of pencil drawings of turns- brilliant teaching aid!

Hope there are more of these WOW days!

good day yesterday even with the heat, it was good to get back on the bike after crashing. managed to work most of the way back up to speed, Ill get there though, im a lot more cogniscent of listening to what the bike is telling me I think and im sure some of it was paranoia but it felt like the bike slipped a lot more than usual and that really held me back now that im skittish about it doing that.

dave, sucks you couldnt be there, I didnt get to the track till after 930 so i said screw it on picking up your rims...turns out that worked out for the best since my front warmer seems to have decided its time for vacation and isnt working... not that they were really needed yesterday anyways.

I'm guessing that it was much different than your kiddie pool. They weren't pissing in it.
