    What are you doing today, 2021 edition

    I lit a fire yesterday afternoon and kept it going all day. I sat there alone for hours reflecting on my dad and what he meant to us. Sometimes I just need to stop and smell the roses so to speak. We had my family over for a BBQ and evening fire which was a nice relaxing distraction from the...

    I went to physio yesterday for some attention on my back. Then went to mom's to help out. Plans are set for dads funeral. We worked at cleaning up his shop as we're using it as a drop in place after the funeral. I am seriously getting fed up with the stupid idiotic covid rules currently in...

    No worries Bob. It's understandable. This week has been a whirlwind for us. It still feels like this is all a bad dream and any minute he'll come walking through the door. But I know that will never happen. On a more positive note, dad was working for a smaller trucking company hauling gravel...

    Needed to escape and clear my head so I loaded up the side by side and headed to the bush to go riding for a couple hours. It didn't help.

    I'd estimate about 80mph on the straight and down to 50 in the corners.

    First and foremost, my brother was fine. A bit sore but walked away without a scratch thanks to the safety restraint and support system inside the car. From the pictures, the car looks totalled. But the frame is straight. The driveline is salvageable. It was slated to get a new body anyway...

    Day 2 We started out 4th in a field of 9 for a 10 lap race. He held his own and the field spread out. He finished 4th. That put him starting 4th in the b main. He once again drove it like he stole it and was in a tight battle with another car for 2nd in a 20 car field when he was coming into...

    Update time. Saturday started good and ended great. The track was fast but super rough and loose in the corners. I watched my brother drive his heart out like he's never driven before. He was previously about a mid pack racer most weekends with limited funds and still learning the new car...

    Tonight was the opening night of three days of racing. They were only practicing and qualifying but he did alright. Definitely not the slowest car out there. I know dad was looking down and is proud.
