Getting sprayed with anti-freeze rules! Glasses are good for a lot of things!
Our buddies from Santa Barbara who took care of me when I had my broken thumb are here visiting! Yey!
And on Friday I somehow got 8 tix to a very sold out derby in Heber (it sold out in February I guess!!) by making a few phone calls to the right people.
So we rallied the troops:
And apparently so did everyone else:
Even though it was going to rain on all of us:
And went to the derby.
The cars are all lined up ready to rumble:
We hid for a while under the bleachers as it rained:
Dirt was flying:
Here is a before pix:
Backing up at high speed to crash into each other is the method of choice so they don't destroy their own engine
This purple car was like a pin wheel as the black car drove in a circle trying to get it off of his own car
Cars getting completely trashed
Rain coming our way
Rain is here
The tiny car heat:
Mud flew into the bleachers left and right.......and right down my shirt too!
Trucks piled on each other (far left):
Eric playing on dirty bleachers:
More action shots:
And, wow it was loud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After 4 hours of crash, bang, boom, mud flying, smoke, fires, blood, some fights, getting sprayed with EVERYTHING under the sun, getting rained on, then there was a HUGE fire works show.
On the way home none of us could hear ourselves think! It was shower time when we got home as we trailed dirt into the house as it fell off of us and out of our hair.
Quite the experience I must say but it was a good way to finally get some laughs and forget about my hand for the first time since surgery.
