decreasing radius turn made me crash. Didn't know how to make the turn on my first track day. Landed on my head.

5 and 6 can be a bitch until someone shows you a good line through. I have had a few near crashes on that turn combo. Gingerman is one of my favorite tracks.

Nick, $75, through who, is that a full day or LP sportrider 1/2 day?

The $75 is for LP track day with a race license. It's $125 otherwise.

And I've gone from no, to..probably not. Let's see what changes.

I am bringing the van this time, so I'll have lots and lots of room for food and adult beverages. And if anyone wants to 'pool', I can pull a trailer!

Sweet, this is going to be a fun weekend. So Sunday is your birthday Steve? Man you guys like grilling so much I'm just gonna start bringing the food and no grill. I would hate to keep you guys from grilling when you enjoy it so much.

Dave, we need your grill. Mine is pint sized, would take forever to cook all this stuff up! Now, do they allow camping at Gingerman? I'd hate to try and rent a hotel room on 4 days notice in South Haven, MI on a weekend ($$$$$$$$$$$$$$$)

Grover, no problem then here's the deal I'll provide the grill and gas for it, and let you do the cooking.

Steve, one day whatever maybe we'll end up celebrating enough that it will end up your birthday.

Stop taking showers then, it will also prevent people behind you from getting close enough to pass you.
