    Completely agree, tons of work to get everything setup, organized and running smoothly. Barry and the volunteers did a great job!

    Saturday morning early run. Almost no-one was on the Dragon yet. Was a blast!

    They normally have 1 during the week, 2 on weekends; 1 sheriff, 1 county. This year I saw 2 on Monday-Weds. chatted with two of them on Monday, actually they are very cool guys, really just making sure we are being safe, and not acting like jerks on the road.

    Thats good to hear, it is nice when the Cops are being cool about it. One year there was one that was being dangerous on the Dragon. My son and I saw him cross the line several times. In one of the corners he pulled across the on coming lain in to a runoff on the opposite side, opened his door and listened for cars then did a u-turn! We stoped and watched him. I was furious. The year the Dragon had the rock slide the two TN HP's were parked near the gate sitting on the hood of their cars talking. They might as well had a sign that said "Have Fun On The Dragon" That was a fun time.

    We ran across one LEO while outbound on Blimey's Tour of Terror. I probably would have missed the unmarked black SUV if it hadn't been running radar and called out on the radio by folks in the front of the line.

    Also: Some photos have been posted. I haven't been to Killboy's site yet: http://www.129photos.com/

    What possesses an idiot to drive like that on the dragon or anywhere? I'm easy going, but that carp really pisses me off.
