I was in Co Spgs on Tuesday when the fire started. By the afternoon when I drove back home it had just grown into a billowing fire storm. I drove right past it on I-25. Had to go back on Thursday and it was not as intense. Lots of low-lying smoke, but not mushroom clouds of smoke. I know many people who live in the Black Forest area who, on Thursday, did not know if their homes survived.

Have seen many photos of the damage/destruction caused by the fires. A few of down town Denver showing the heavy smoke was surreal. Not necessarily happy we didn’t make the move there but am relieved not to have had to go thru an evac, etc.

The 335i WILL be uncovered and WILL get to go out and play today.

On my last business trip to Colorado Springs I realized I had never had the S6 in 7th gear. I put it into manual shift and went to 7th gear at 75 MPH. It was only turning 2,000 RPM. With a 6,400 RPM redline it will hit top speed well before it runs out of revs.

Hope there is no rain in those Irish Hills today!

Happy Father's Day to all of our Nascar dads!

I am going to be in Denver, so early ping again.

If you haven't seen, Jason Leffler passed away from injuries sustained in a dirt track race this past week.

Weather in the race area is is looking wet off and on with thunderstorms this morning, clearing for awhile, and storms returning in the early evening.

To be serious I do notice a lag before the turbo kicks in when I mash the pedal. I’ve read why this happens and tis said that you need to be north of 2000 RPM so that there is enough exhaust pushing the fans to get the immediate turbo boost.

Time to do one of the fun roads

Pikes, 550 from Durango to Montrose.

Can you still run 34 west of Estes Park down to 40 then in to Idaho Springs?

That would be a fun run...

160 over Wolf creek down to Pagosa would be a hoot too.

fwiw parts of 160 are on the old Chisolm trail

My dad worked for the construction company when they cut and built 160 from Wolf Creek down to Az., from the early 40's into the 50's, they lost a bunch of equipment down the side of the mtn. that took them a couple of years to retrieve, some they just left there...

I got in a snark war on a racing forum (that was collecting money for the guy’s 5 yr old kid) by pointing out that Leffler had >$5 million lifetime Nascar winnings and a fraction of that in open wheel AND didn’t have life insurance.

The mother of his kid grew up a mile or so down the street from me. They have an impressive estate, the grandparents are very well off. Even have their own private small dirt oval track in the back acres.

On that forum I didn’t disparage the idea of contributing outright, just casually mentioned this guy had won over $5 million and made a conscious decision not to buy insurance.

Some folks went nuts on me.

We gave up satellite on Friday. It was time. We turned on tv in the evenings, at most, to watch reruns of The Big Bang Theory, and if I am home, Nascar on Sundays. Listening to MRN and have Racebuddy up. Pretty decent way to go.
