And WTF it's snowing. Good day to work on this project.

Alright. I'll bite. What ARE you building?

By the way, I love snow.

Corner Spin 1.0?

So since a bunch of you guys have been to both CornerSpin 1.0 and 1.5.....any advice other than keep your elbows up? Dorito and I leave on Friday and are really looking forward to taking the class! Did you use their knee protection or did you use your own and if you used your own what did you use? If you did then did it have a hard outer shell or just CE approved type armor? Thanks!

Kevin...I am curious as well what that is.....

I used the CS knee and elbow pads. They weren't anything special. If you've already got some, I'd probably just wear it. They did have the hard outer shell though. My only words of wisdom is to take a bottle of Advil cause you won't be able to walk after the class.

Have fun! I'm considering taking another one this year, but I'm seriously thinking about the cornerspeed class too. I've never been on a big track before and want to see what it's all about.

Yep, what LLM said about the Advil! And you will make good use of any knee and elbow pads you use on the first day, or youre not doing it right. I hope you guys have a blast, and if you get Triple X as an instructor, dont feel bad, he doesnt like anybody !!

I was wondering about elbow pads. We are going to try and GoPro as much as possible so hopefully you guys will have plenty to laugh at and remember when you were there.

It's a water powered sausage stuffer. At least that's what I hope it turns out to be, if not it will be one heck of a potato gun like Jack said.

I thought it was some kind of fractionating column for corn liquor.

And after drinking all that fancy beer I'll probably still just drink my Coors Light.


Coors brews a porter??

No, we were sampling different brands and types of beer. We tried one some of you beer aficionados might like. It was a Tripple Belgium style ale, too hoppy for me. When I tried it I thought of 6USMC6, I think it is more his style.

I prefer a Dubble (spelling?) but I do really enjoy a Kriek and other Lambics
