Talking Back from American Supercamp

I just got back from American Supercamp.
all I can say is Wow !!!
Danny Walker really runs a first class school.

There is someone always (I mean always)there tweaking on your riding..They change the track layout about 3-4 times a day.. you always do the track in both directions.. sometimes the lines will change in the middle of sessions.
videos .. Doughnut drills... what a blast

they have some chatterboxes and they can work with you all around the track... I took them up on this and thought it was great.

It sure is fun slipping and sliding around on those 100's all day long for 2 days.

They held it at the Springfield Fairgrounds at the same time as the races and 3 of the instructors were in the top 3 on the heat races. Chris Carr, and Showtime Johnny Murphrey were going at it pretty good at the end of the heat race and Murphrey got a 3rd place in the main event....
His interview was funny, before he got done he mentioned he was going back to supercamp and asked if his students saw his Elbows... Pretty neat as you were banging tires and bars with those same guys the night before.

They both were both really nice and autographed my helmet for me.

I can barely pick up my legs they are so tired and sore

It was nice to meet up with Blade runner (Bruce) there I think he was on his 4th or 5th time .... I'm going back...
I'm hooked !!!

Ouch, eech, grunt. Pass the Advil. Damn do my legs hurt today.
Once again, what a blast. And getting to hang with a friend from home to share the experiance was very vey cool. Thanks D. We need to enlarge the following!
BTW, that was #4.
I got to get me a little dirt bike and find someplace to practice what I learned. Anyone know where to ride up N.W.?

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

This was right after the Main Event, Johnny was telling us about the last few turns of the last lap.

Left to right, Me, Bruce(BladeRunner), and Johnny Murphrey,
You can see Danny Walker in the background with the leg cast.... He was telling everyone he got hit by a car.... (Chris Carr )
