Thanks...cant wait, its been 2 1\2 years since a timbit...

ricbow - unless you have to go to Palmdale... take I5 to 46 and jump over to 99 south to 58 which hit 15 @ Barstow - a easy route (I've taken it for 6-years now).

I'll be at the Palace Station from Thursday around 2pm, with the TALL Red Head husband...
I have arrived at the Palace Station. I will leave a small box of rather stale timbits at the registration desk for you. Or look for the black-eye purple MINI with BC plates.

Also..,I have smarties.

Here's my AMVIV6 set. I will be adding a few as I have time and access to the internet. In the meantime, there are a few there to wet your appetite. Check often over the next couple of months or so as I also took a few pix using my 0ld film equipment.

We'll have our pictures up later in the week -- have to get home first.

My wife (MINI Artist) took over 700, there's bound to be a few good ones in there.

I was trying to make it to Klamath Falls OR on our first leg home. We only made it to Alturas. MINI did not complete the trip unscathed. Somewhere, there is a big gray Hare (big rabbit?) playing his harp in bunny heaven. MINI has a broken front center air dam but will survive the drive home.

They have some huge Jack Rabbits down there! I used to live in Reno and Vegas. Nobody ever believed me on how big they got till they came to visit and I showed them. Did you hit him at night? Thats when I used to see them. They are attracted to the road by headlights. If you watch on the side of the road you'll see them.

Was very nice to meet a lot of you!

Until then, here's Agro
