Salt Flats with Ry, Mac, and Scott
Saturday, three people and myself decided to make a trip down to the Salt Flats again. This time Scott Morris came down with his trusty camera and shot video of us doing it. Hopefully that video will be posted soon. My little bro. , Ryan came down with his Mustang GT to get in the action. Also, Mac Newbold, a friend from UPHPU came down with his Toyota Highlander Hybrid and we all had a blast together.Not much happened down there other than us driving like crazy. For me, the rush of trying to control the car while fishtailing at 100+ MPH is like no other feeling. This time, I was powersliding between 50-70 MPH quite a bit, trying to stay in control. I'd say I was able to pull out and continue going forward about 50% of the time. The other 50%, I flipped around and went backwards. I'm still learning. With no track mapped out, it was pretty tough evaluating exactly what I was doing.

Next time we go, we've gotta bring down a bunch of cones, or markers of some sort to mark out a slalom raceway or something else. That would be a load of fun. I guess I just love the thrill of learning to drive better.

Anyway... I've just gotta say that Ryan and I finally raced. heh... I beat the pants off him - twice. He woefully acknowledged it and told me with a menacing tone, "You just wait...". Yes, people, the family feud has begun. *evil grin*. Nah... My car is just newer, that's all. In all fairness, however, I must say that Ryan now has the top-speed record of the family.

On the way down there, we went downhill for about 5 miles, and Ryan decided to take the opportunity to...... go ..... very..... fast. Yeah. He ended up beating my record of 145 MPH by 5. He want 150 MPH. Darn it. heh... Ohwell.. There's always more hills to go down. Anyway....

Soooo..... Some other highlights about this time around would have to be Scott's car completely breaking down (he ended up fixing it, and driving it home - limping), arriving at the Salt Flats with a seemingly endless lake of water completely surrounding us (we drove through it, it was max. 6 inches deep), and taking lots of pictures and video (soon to be published somewhere, I hope)

Anyway... Good times had by all.
