Gorgeous day activities

8 posts in this topic

As I saw the forecast for Saturday on Friday night, I realized I had several options to take advantage of the gorgeous weather ... temperatures in the mid-70s with sunny skies:

...wash/wax/clean my '87 MC LS (plan to do that next weekend)

...take my older 4 Monte Carlos out for a drive

...go to a park and walk around

...go for a mini road trip somewhere

...explore Meadowdale International Raceway Park, located at Huntley Rd and IL RT 31, just north of where I live in IL:

...among other things....

The option that won out was driving my older 4 MCs, particularly since I haven't had them out but one time this year, 2 weeks ago. I drove each of them about 35 miles ... in about 55 minutes. It was awesome ... and reminded me how much I really enjoy them.

Course ... one of these days, I really want to explore that Raceway Park, perhaps with a gathering of people ... and find a nice route to go for a long mini-road trip cruise....

So ... what about you? What do you most enjoy doing outside when the weather is incredibly wonderful?

Took the 85 Olds out for a nice beach cruise, gave it a wash, and then took it out again. I make the ususal stops at a few friends houses, and that takes up the day.

OH crud .... I just missed it! Ah, well ... I don't remember seeing signs for it, but I may've ... and just didn't realize it.

I take it you are in that area, too?

Heh ... today started off a bit rough:

My alarm went off at 6am, and not more than 2 minutes later ... BOOOOOOMMMMMM ... SNAP/CRACKLE ... HISSSSSSS.

I sat bolt upright in bed ... realizing everything electric (or so I thought) was off. I scampered out of my room headed up the steps, instinctively turning on the stairway light .... and, wala ... light. So, I turned back into my room ... and flipped some of the circuit breakers and entire house had power again.

Next door neighbor heard it, too. We strongly believe it was a lightning strike between the 2 houses. Neither house looks like it has any damage, BUT....my VCR is no more, as are my stereo speakers. TVs and computers seem to be fine. Go figure.
