Photos from the 2014 Motorama Events

If you have almost 1 million square feet of indoor space you can hold all sorts of cool indoor race competitions. This is exactly what Motorama Events does each year at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg, PA. The complex is divided up into roughly ten areas with each holding their own event. This was the first year that we actually made it to the Go Kart races.

Usually it is so packed that you need to struggle to catch a glimpse of these fast karts as they whip around the indoor kart track. This year snow kept many of the spectators away which made it very enjoyable to watch although spending too much time in here had our eyes stinging from the exhaust. It was worth it!

Another first for us this year was watching a few rounds of Robot Conflict. Sparks were flying as the battle bots smashed and sawed each other. Some of the contestants were as animated as their creations.

A great way to introduce youngsters to the sport of racing is in a Quarter Midget race car. These mini racers are capable of speeds near 30 miles an hour.  While the indoor track is too small to actually obtain those speeds it doesn't deter these young drivers from trying. This is always great family fun.

You can find some of the best RC Racing here at Motorama Events. 1/8th and 1/10th scale Buggies, Truggies, Stadium Trucks, and others battle it out on two different tracks. It so hard to watch all these fast vehicles racing around the track that the thought of racing them is a bit nutty to me. These RC drivers are just awesome!

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.
