Phew - Busy Busy

Not much to add here, Mid Ohio was as always enjoyable, and considerably more enjoyable than it was last year when my dog Jack died. Speaking of which I cannot wait for the season to be over and we go find (rescue) a new big dog puppy. I love our two cats, Widget and Bean, immensely. But a dog has another quality I love and have missed since Jack died. However, it's taken me a long time to get over Jacks' death. This might sound odd to many folks, but it was easier to come to terms with my Father's death vs my dog Jack.

VIR is always enjoyable, but oh my oh my it was hot. The smells that permeate the open car window on the way to the track are something else. I couldn't live there, far too humid and I don't need to be reminded of hurricane season each year (I did grow up in the UK so the weather systems are similar) and I enjoy my cool Northern California coastal air.

But it's extremely pretty in Virginia.

Next up Road Atlanta. See you there.
