Saturday had us rising at 3am to make the 3 hour trip north to Beaver Springs Dragway in Beaver Springs, PA. We were very concerned about the weather since it rained pretty much the entire trip north. But, as we approached the track the rain began to ease. Checking out the track’s website showed that there would be a 1 hour delay but they planned to still race. By 8:30am the sun was shining and the track crew was drying the dragstrip. The “Beav” is pretty much in the middle of nowhere but what an awesome track it is. It isn’t so much the facilities but the people that run the strip. I have never met a more laid back and fun bunch of workers at any race facility before.
We were there for vintage racing. Gasser Magazine was sponsoring the Gasser Reunion and it brought out many vintage racers and show cars. We had a blast! If you ever have a chance to go to one of these nostalgia drag races you should. I gave a few of our photos the vintage effect in honor of the races and several photos are available for purchase over at our photo store http://photos.bgcustoms.com. The rest can be seen over at MyRideisMe.com.

Over in the pits a killdeer had made a nest in the gravel. The workers had set up safety cones around the nest to help protect it. Just another example of how cool Beaver Springs Dragway actually is.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
