Bristol Raceway



We didn't do much today.  Some cleaning, wash and cooking.  we hung around the campground most of the day.  The guys had some repair work to do on Jim's step.  His part hasn't come in and they tried fixing the part, or what ever they did all day.


After doing all our chores around the bus, Libbie and I rode over to Bristol Raceway.



We drove around and found an open gate and went in to check things out.






This is a half mile track.  It looked small to me.




There doesn't look like there is enough room to get all those cars on pit road.



There was a tour bus taking some people around the track.  We never saw an office to find out about tours, so we just took our own.




It wasn't so bad walking down all those steps.  But going back up, was terrible.  My life flashed before my eyes, 3 or 4 times.

 Can you see Libbie up there?  Look where the red and white meet.  See her now?


There was a huge poster acknowledging  Jeff Gordon and his last season.  You could write on it.  Neat idea, some of the comments weren't nice though.





Jim cooked supper tonight and it was very good.  We had grilled pork chops and great northern beans and cornbread.  We also grilled a salmon steak to see if we could do it.  It was good too.  For our first time cooking salmon, I think we did very well.  It's a learning process.  It was good, but I think we can do better.

It was a simple day, but a good day.
