|Johnny, this is his place|
|Ted and his son, Matt were there, they left before the race|
|Joel's rig..Ken went for a little ride, but even that didn't convince|
him we need one :(
|Ready to head to the races|
The name of the race is Best In the Desert Vegas to Reno. These different machines do 500 miles in one day on desert roads. Really cool to watch! They're flying! A couple of the Super Trucks even have helicopters flying with them to tell them what to look for in front of them.
|Our Dodge loaded and ready to go|
|Loaded and ready!!|
|Part of the group cheering on the racers!|

|Cheer, Cheer, Cheer!|
|One of the first racers..|
|Our set up to watch the race..|
|Misters were wonderful in the 95 degree tent!|
Johnny brought out hot dogs for lunch so during a lull he brought out a commercial hot dog cooker with the rollers..OMG those hot dogs were wonderful! They're not that expensive and I'm thinking they'd sure be a nice to have for company! A nice,simple easy lunch but oh so yummy!
|The first helicopter we saw!|
|Where we were!|
|This helicopter goes ahead of the truck and tells them how|
the track is in front of them..only two that we saw..
|Love this thing!|
|A Super Truck|
|The group across the way|
|It's getting dark out there!|
Then it was time for the Super Trucks..those things are really cool! Of course there's time between them, but I'd like if they were closer together but still fun with the company we're out there with!
It was near dark by the time we headed back to Johnny's property. The party continued until we couldn't party anymore (you know how that feels don't ya George!)
This morning (Saturday) we awoke to a nice breeze coming through the trailer. Got ourselves up and going and after pouring his second cup Ken headed outside with the guys. I went ahead and got my shower done and then went out.
We ended up saying good bye to Shawn and Adam who were leaving, heading towards Reno before they head to their homes. Duke had left earlier in the am. Keith and his son, Chase showed up to spend the night. Even though we had only planned on two nights, we drove the Dodge home and are going back to spend the night there in a bit. We figured, why not?! We only see them once or twice a year so let's do it. We'll be back home in the morning sometime.
|Looks like Seth and Holly had a great time in San Francisco|
|I thought this was a cute pic of them :)|
