Cameron Oliver and I went to camp this weekend. Paul and Cyndy were there to. We visited with Mom and Dad. The Govenor was busy most of the weekend didn't see him much till today. Saturday Dad, Paul, Oliver and I went to Adirondack Speedway in New Bremen for a woodchuck festival and got to see a good race too. we saw the Edge Hotel 150 of the NASCAR East series. Below are photos of Oliver and I with Ricky Carmichael. Oliver asking why Steve Park's steering wheel was off. He was very concerened about this. The race was very good. There is also a win shot. Matt Kobyluck(40) won, Trevor Bane(1)second, and Austin Dillion(3) third. Race will be on Speed channel in a few weeks.
Sunday Oliver and I rode the kayak with Oliver. Then we went for a boat ride and saw a Bald Eagle fly over us, very close to us. It was really neat to see one so close.
Today on the way home we stopped at the UHRR in North Creek. They were switching some cars with the RS-1 and we watched for a minute. The engineer stopped and came over to us. He said "We are closed today for train rides, but if you'd like you can come up in the engine." Oliver was OK with that. It made his day. Cameron liked it too.

I haven't been following NASCAR for a while, but I am left wondering when Jimmy Spencer became a "megastar".

I read a list of the most stolen cars last year, #1 was the 1995 Honda Civic, #6 was the 1994 Acura Integra. Paul are cars locked?

The whole family went on a picnic with some of the old gang from high school. We went to Saratoga State Park. Nobody drank the water. Niskayuna gradates in the photo are. Aaron Hull, Marc Colosimo, Chris Rooney, Scott Price, Michelle Lortie (Leader) and Shannon Gray (Barney), and Jim Flanders. It rained some but still had fun. All the kids probably had more fun than us.
Here is a picture of the basement after painting the walls and putting down the new flooring. Most of the floor is done. There are a few edges and oddball cuts to make.

"We got some great news today… Jake’s Corner has been selected to open the Sacramento Film & Music Festival on Friday Night August 8 and will show at 9pm. Each year the festival is held at the historic Crest Theatre in downtown Sacramento. Tony Sheppard, Director of the Festival, said that Jake’s Corner is one of the best films ever been submitted in his five years with the Festival. The most prestigious time slot at any festival is opening night so, needless to say, we are very pleased. We would welcome any Jake’s Corner friends who happen to find themselves in Northern California to attend. It promises to be a great night!" (from the Jake's Corner, the Movie, website)
It looks like some of us could be among the lucky few to see the premiere of Jake's Corner. Maybe, after seeing the film, we can then finally figure out what this place is all about.

On the way to the grid walk they accidently let a bunch of people behind the pit wall. Corvette may have no competition in GT2 but they are winning overall in pit box setup.
