Thanks Barry. Good to hear from ya'. If helping with transport & accomodations will sway your decision to run again in 2013 (race is June 30, 2013), let me know and I'll see what I can do to make it happen.
One thing folks should be aware of is there are several "practice" sessions now available in June. For first timers, this is a HUGE advantage in seeing the Mountain and getting somewhat more comfortable in that environ before the pressure and crush of practice, qualifying and race day. That was unavailable when Barry and I first ran the Mountain. I've not made the trip for a "practice" (it is a loooong haul from Atlanta), but first time folks who did it last year really enjoyed it and were glad they had the opportunity to "suss out" the Mountain.
Vintage guys and gals enter soon!
