    I think the wife is OK with the $165 SCCA Track Day America fee (for now) but no way would she agree to $10k+

It's in rural Indiana among the farms. Every year they do a fundraiser for the local FFA. Shane knows what that is. Different vibe than Europe, south FL, or NJMP.
    Yes...Iím the poster child.

    Ever been to Thermal? Aside from the facility, it's similar to the surface of the moon only considerably hotter. No trouble getting the tires up to temperature. The bigger challenge is staying hydrated.

    I suspect that I could figure out a way to stay hydrated in my 8-15 thousand square foot "villa" overlooking my exotic cars and the race track. Only problem I can foresee is that it is more likely that I would find myself on the surface of the moon than being able to afford a "villa" at the Thermal Club. The fellow who owns the dealership I bought my Vette from drives a beautiful McLaren 720s and is a very nice man. Maybe he could afford the freight and let me play with my Corvette I bought from his dealership on his track? I wouldn't be so bold as to invite myself as an overnight villa guest.

    Not only are se7ens addictive but some of the accompanying lifestyle scenarios could certainly become addictive if someone would just gift me a few million bucks. Broken down old psychologists just can't handle the freight I am afraid

    Its not even a great track to drive. It was solely designed to maximize real estate frontage on the race track for visual appeal. Pity they ignored driver enjoyment.

    Oh no, you don't need 8-15000 sqft villa. I make do with 1500 sqft on my ground floor level and one night we managed to squeeze in 12 sevens and a 1965 Mustang.

    And with my fridge capacity upstairs and downstairs for beer, wine, mixers for spirits, coca cola, more beer, sprite, cherry coke, orange tangerine coke, cream soda, more wine, bitter lemon, mountain dew, and some unhealthly ladies drink called water, neither myself or any of my guests ever lack hydration.

    I have always been amazed how psychologists can solve everyone else's problems but not their own...

    The person who is his own doctor has a simpleton for a patient. My spouse already thinks she is married to a simpleton. I don't want to prove her correct
