Grattan April 5th Who is staying where

Wear is everyone staying at. Hotel, camping.
Travis and I are debating on where to stay. In the truck or a hotel room.

I'm not short. I'm aerodynamically efficient.

Cherry and I are staying at the Candlestone Inn & "Resort" w/ Kruz.

Cherry- As for the carpooling thing, I don't know. You are really going to have to convince me that your idea works. I'd rather ball it up at the track then on the interstate. Also, I might not stay for Sunday...so we might just follow each other w/ me in your draft this time

It it's not predicted to be mid 50's for a high... I'm not riding Sunday either. I'll have the trailer all set... it will work. I'l bring the trailer down that Friday morning to work, then we can load after work....see how it looks, tow it around the block, if it doesn't work, we can just each go solo.

I'm going ot work on it Sunday, if you're in the area during the week, you can take a look at it.

Oh, I forgot to tell you that there is a 98% chance I will be leaving Sat. morning. Friday night is reserved for the wife. Sorry.

I'm going to have wait until the day before to decide if I am going to this day. I'm working on the safety wiring but Im more worried about the temperature. Plus I still have to set up my suspension and gettting my license at Grattan is not exactly my first choice for playing around with that.

Less then 10 miles away from gratten. From what MS Streets tells me. It's around 50 bucks a night for a double.

2 hours or less??? Maybe to Gingerman. Plus there's a time change so we lose an hour.

Hey Doc (DevilredR6 here). I never got my email to activate my other account so I coulndn't post. Anyhow this is me.

Are you guys riding Grattan April 6th (sunday) and going down Saturday for the night? A couple buddies of mine and i plan to also ride in Sunday and grab a room Saturday night. Drop me a e-bomb and let me know if you guys are going to be at a hotel or what and maybe we can hook up and talk track shit.
