Brakes of Steel

Neck and neck down the back straight. He’s inching forward, damn that +5hp BS sticker of his! The 5 marker approaches. Then 4. Now 3. C’mon man, he’s got to bail out sooner or later! You nail ’em for all they’re worth and dive to the apex, dumping a wheel off the corner exit but you’ve done it! That feel.

10 Years Ago – November 2004

Because this year's Fall Color Tour was called off, return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear! From out of the past come the thundering exhaust notes of the great car Miata! The MMC rides again!:

Leaf Peeping

Date: Saturday, November 6, 2004
Time: 7:00 or 8:00 AM
Place: Cracker Barrel, Martinez, GA
Members Attending: Brian & Donna Bogardus, Carol & John Haff, Rick & Angela Sherwood and Rudy Wilmoth & Patti Letizia.

Brian & Donna, John & Carol and Rudy & Patty were there at 7 to eat breakfast. At 8, about the time we quit eating, the Sherwoods arrived to join us for the drive and the Haffs went home. In an effort to not fall in to a routine, Brian had changed from the usual ending point of Caesar’s Head State Park in SC to Black Mountain State Park in GA. Because on our way we would driving right by it, we stopped in to gawk at Georgia’s Stonehenge just north of Elberton like some of us had on the Gap trip in September. When we did arrive at Black Mountain at mid-day, the view would have been fantastic, say 2 weeks ago. Oh well, we had great weather for a drive.

From the state park we drove about 5 miles further north to dine at the famous Dillard House. Meals are served family style and in quantities large enough so that you could eat until literally bursting. After lunch we burned off about 1/100th of the calories consumed by walking over to their farm and petting zoo where we were treated to the jumping goat show.

After lunch we did head up into North Carolina for a bit so we could drive some Miata roads. Rudy & Patti stayed behind in Highlands to shop while the Bogarduses and Sherwoods headed home. And actually the best color of the whole trip was found on 28 south of Highlands, NC. I didn’t get to notice too much of it, as 28 is a mighty fine twisty road and I only saw a double yellow line, a white line and the asphalt in between. 🙂

Driverman’s Creed

My ride is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My ride, without me, is useless. Without my ride, I am useless. I must drive my ride true. I must apex better than my opponent who is trying to pass me. I must apex before he dive bombs me, I will.
