No hotel. We'll probably stay at my cousins, or we'll camp.

Knee surgery went great Hirsh, and the rehab team was awesome. I'll be close to the NESBA trailer most likely in a white trailer with a Gold Excursion.

Looking forward to meeting you. Have to introduce you to two Control Riders for NESBA from Indy, Steve Gould and Barry Dolan.

See ya there!

I don't know Steve (at least by name) but I know Barry. We rode in B together. Apparently he progressed a little more quickly.

Looks like I'll be going to this! Couldn't turn it down since I'm free this weekend and it looks like this is the only Putnam NESBA day I can fit in this year. Should be a good opening track weekend for me.

Dan, can you PM your cell number?

I had a couple options, had one on ebay, the one you found me...but i ended up getting a tank from a guy who saw my ad on the wera board. I overnighted a mint tank for a sweet price.

I really appreciate everyone's help! Thank you

Thanks Barry. I caught the time zone thread on the NESBA board so 7am est is still plenty early for us CST dwellers. I hope you get out in B so you can tow me around a few times.(first time at putnam) My first session will only be a few laps to break /work-in check the rebuild. If everything is cool then it's game on for the rest of the day.

Two smokes rule

Plus I promised you a test ride if you wanted to sample the dark side
