Watkins Glen: The Call of the Wild

The days are getting longer, the temperature is back in the 50s, and the Coupe is off the battery tender.

Even though my home approval rating is at its perpetual low because of the excessive number of driving events I do, the driving Calendar for the year has been finalized and eked out congressional approval. It helps that I only need approval from one congresswoman; imagine what would happen if you had 435. Or wait, you already know how that's working out...

I signed up to instruct for the first few 2012 track events, which means everything is right with the world again! I was getting worried about my track addiction, so I researched the most addictive drugs in the world. I was relieved to find out that brake pads were not on the list or I'd be high on brake dust from April through October every year.

The 2012 track season will pick up right where 2011 left off: Watkins Glen. Here's an in-cam video from my last session of 2011:

What a fantastic track!! I heard the call of the wild, and I'll be back with you soon!
