Stan - Will you be running? How is the baby? If this is the weekend of 11/17, I will be at my house on Anna Maria Island, so I'll probably come up.

What time do the races start??

Where are the wet pits going to be? I assume they will be coming out the "miserable mile" to the gulf.

Why are the not racing by the Pier? Was it a Manatee/Sea Turtle/Coast Guard Permit thing? Whatever it was it's too bad because the top of the pier is the best place I've ever watched a race from including Mallory Square. I'm sure the gulf will be a great race too, Hurricanes and the Don will be good places to watch. If the wind kicks up offshore it will be a really good race

ratman,
I'll take you up on that if that's an offer.
If I recall correctly you're running an older Mistress, that's for sale?

That is exactly what I want to get into, just not enough cash yet, and gotta sell the wife on it. I'm sure going for a ride would make it easier.

If you have animals you have to be flexible. Both my primary and backup sitter decided to go out of town to beat the holiday rush.

There were/are some other problems but I won't go into that.

I can get to (drive) St Pete on a daily basis.

So smile, all be aware you may be on candid camera.

gdfatha, I'm not afraid of a camera on this trip, my wife will be with me the whole time ( even if it involves t!tty bar ) - so, there will not be evidence, she will actually be an accessory to the crime.
