South out of Yellowstone next to the Grand Tetons...

On our way south out of Yellowstone we drove through Grand Tetons National Park. This park was a bit of a letdown to me, as you can’t really drive INTO the mountains, but just along their base. ...

And Old Faithful...

And what trip to Yellowstone would be complete without Old Faithful? It erupts fairly regularly, and through some process the rangers are able to predict the next eruption within a couple of...

Yellowstone Critter photos...

Next up are the animals we saw in Yellowstone. Bison, elk, black bears, chipmunks (way too fast to photograph!), even a couple of moose from a distance. We actually had to stop and wait for a herd...

The Falls of Yellowstone River...

Speaking of scenery, the falls at Yellowstone are amazing! We spent several hours working our way around both sides of Yellowstone River. There are two falls on the river. This is the upper fall: ...

Getting into Yellowstone from the East side...

After an overnight stay in Cody, WY, we went in through the east side entrance into Yellowstone. The drive got off to a spectacular start as we went through Sylvan Pass, elevation 8500’

As we headed towards Yellowstone, we were still experiencing snow, although we were still a long way from any of the mountain passes. ...

The rain stops, Devil's Tower, and Prairie Dogs...

With the rain finally subsiding, we decided to add a stop that was fairly well along the way: Devils Tower. For those of you that are rapidly dropping into the category of “dinosaur”, Devils Tower is...

Still raining, and Mt. Rushmore...

After making it to Rapid City, SD (still raining), we went to Mt. Rushmore National Monument and Custer State Park (home of a rather well known drive called “Needles”). The persistent rain...

More rain, and the Badlands...

OK, now on to more traditional travel fare. In spite of the rain, we did stop at the Badlands National Park. I found it quite similar to the Painted Desert we visited last year, and quite honestly...

Rain, and a Minuteman missile silo

The next day we woke to rain. A steady moderate rain, that went for hours and hundreds of miles. The cool, wet spring weather that has gripped the middle of the nation didn’t let up all the way...

A full day of travel...

Upon leaving Branson we headed towards the Badlands. Our philosophy is that vacations are supposed to be fun, so we limit our driving to around 7 hours a day. So, our first stop was in Sioux City,...

Branson, MO

Our “North Coast” trip started out joining our Corvette club on a weekend cruise to Branson, MO. We took in a show, ate too much food, went to a really nice go-kart track, and had a great time with...

Our "North Coast" Road Trip (It's a book!)

After our west coast road trip last year, and the east coast trip the year before, this year we went to the "north coast". I'm going to put each major stop in its own post, so it'll hopefully make...

There's a very, VERY, critical typo in that article. The new regs are proposing going into Parc Ferme before P1, not Q1, as the article states. That's crazy. How many times have we seen cars from...

I've got no problem with the time penalty for the minimum refueling time: the time was well defined, it was an average of 0.6s/refueling, and the penalty was calculated as 4 times the competitive...

I think they did add a minimum refueling time, but I've not read anything about what constitutes a start and stop of the refueling time.

But the excess fuel capacity? A 1/10th of 1% difference in...

And the pathetic beat goes on... 0.1l is roughly 3 ounces of fuel. That's close enough I'd protest the accuracy of their measuring tools.

It makes F1 rules&politics look, well, rather normal....

If you want to talk about autocross, yes. If you're talking about being certified to work as a track safety worker, then of course not; those numbers are very small.

I'm fed up with this 3 car Safety Car routine. It causes chaos, screws up the racing for many teams, and, IMO, is subject to "gaming" the race. I realize one SC on an 8+ mile circuit doesn't work...

I didn't understand Ferrari appealing in the first place, as several sources said that kind of decision wasn't subject to appeal. Another team (Williams?) had tried that in the past with zero...
