Trackday at Infineon Raceway

Is summer really here?? After unbearable winter temperatures dipping as low as 48F (9 Celsius) and an excruciating total of 18 rain days since the beginning of the year, it would appear that summer is approaching. This week we saw sunny skies and temperatures around 78F (25C) and I got the opportunity to wash my car in shorts and t-shirt for the first time this year.
Summer also means a greater frequency to the trackdays that go on in the area and this time I remembered to bring my camera mount so I was able to capture the excitement. It also gave me the opportunity to try out some new go-fast parts that had recently been added, and indeed they did not disappoint giving the ol' girl supercar-like performance, although there was a Ferrari 430 Scuderia I had trouble keeping up with. And yes, I did out-brake myself after passing that 911, even Michael Schumacher has been known to make a mistake once in a while.

Ever have one of those days?

When you wish you would have hit the snooze button one more time? When you didn't give yourself enough time to have a proper breakfast? When you realized that you forgot to pack clean underwear after you have already left the house? When you have rushed to the airport only to discover your flight has been cancelled? Well, today has been one of those days. Literally.

After taking a deep breath, and a good look around, I took a moment to rememeber that we live in a pretty fantastic place, and to cross the Golden Gate Bridge as part of my commute really isn't too shabby, even if it was the second time I was on my way to the airport today. Meanwhile, my next flight is delayed.
The journey continues....
