Arenacross Racing Action at Motorama Events

So what is arenacross? Arenacross is motocross racing indoors! Every year in February I look forward to the Motorama Events Races and Shows for the arenacross action. Held at the Pennsylvania Farm Show building in Harrisburg, PA, this event draws thousands of spectators into the main arena. Both two wheeled and four wheeled riders from around the nation compete in over 2 dozen classes on both Saturday and Sunday. Up to 20 racers at a time battle the course which is about the size of a football field.

The four wheel classes have the biggest challenge as they race into the first corner that is only 10 feet wide! A series of dirt jumps bring the riders close to the spectators. Past the next turn is where the racers can catch some good air. It’s great fun watching and every seat in the house is a good one.

The bike and pit bike classes are even quicker. Classes are based on age, motor size, and skill level. Watching these guys and gals speed around the dirt track at Motorama will get your heart pumping as you cheer for your favorite rider.

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.
