Well I’m here in the ER while they check out my 98 year old dad and I’m bored. So here goes. Hands down an 11 mile stretch of US 129 aka the tail of the dragon. Would use the money to pay who ever what ever it would take to close it for a day. So I could apex every one of its 318 glorious curves and not have to worry about traffic in the other direction. I have so wanted to do this for awhile. Some guys have fantasies about fame fortune and women. I have them about making the perfect corner feeling the Gs load up as you enter the corner and release as you clear the apex. The acceleration down the straight and the anticipation of the next corner life becomes so real. Adrenaline racing through your body the laser focus on the entrance of the next corner. Setting the car up for the corner feeling the Gs load again what a rush. Imagine 318 times this occurs my kind of day. Oh by the way I’m not eligible because of a prior win. Like I said just bored.

As much as I’d like to win, please don’t put my name in the drawing since I have already won before. Thanks Torch



Being an old fart and remember watching “Route 66”. That would be my ultimate trip with starting in Chicago and going all the way to California. I know a lot of the old road is gone and replaced with Interstates but that is still some of it left. I’d travel on as much of it as I could find. I’d stop at every old gas station and drink Coke from a bottle pulled from a machine. I stop at every road side flea market. I’d look for Indian stores and sleep in a concrete tepee (actually I have already done that) When I got to the left coast, I’d soak my feet in the ocean. Of course, then I’d have to return since I have no desire to live in California

First I need to rehabilitate my dead corvette convertible in the back yard, because a high powered car is perfect for mountain driving, and putting the top down allows for better checking out the sights, and the good mountain air.

I plan on driving highway one up the california coast until I get to the cut off for the old road that leads into Yosemite park. At various times looking across the mountain canyon on that road, one can still see the stone work put up by Chinese laborers for the original stagecoach road. This road has a grand entrance vista across the Yosemite valley, a great sight. After some time in the red woods, including the scenic car trails, and drive through red wood tree, I would continue up into the sierras, exploring the scenery, crafts and food, until I reached my turn around point, Lake Tahoe.

There I would briefly check out the casinos and relax around the lake for a couple of days, and then take almost the same return trip home, only this time continue south from Yosemite into sequoia national park, and camp it up in the high sierras for a while, plus hit any handy museums along the way coming or going, I'm retired
