    This year will be a little different and not as exciting on the Journal, you'll see. For one, everyone just knows me as Jennie's husband and since Jennie is at Oxford this week I'm solo and that much more boring.

    Chris denied my entry to Crescent this year, some nonsense about I needed to get back to my Kansas roots. Wasn't sure exactly what he meant, but I have roots in Kansas again.

    What these are the only pics being posted from this great yearly event? I was hoping for more, in particular, Jim's P 4/5.

    historically I'm the only one that posts pictures until after the event. way too much stuff going 8 AM to 2 AM every day. I'm not driving the actual rallies this year, so not as interesting journal from me. I will get some better pictures of the lot tonight or tomorrow. IMHO the highest quality of cars we've ever had at Crescent! P 4/5, GTE, Lusso, 599 GTO, FF, Dino, etc.

    so again keeping with my theme this year of doing things different I spent the day on Beaver Lake fishing for the large Striper they are famous for. This is my 8th year at Crescent and although Beaver Lake is right here, I have never fished it before. All the guides are catching them at night or sunrise/sunset now. I finally found a guide that would take me out during the day although they warned me it wouldn't be very good. Well it was worse than that, not a single bite in the 98 degrees, humidity, and little wind. :D We marked fish and they would come up on the baits, but they just weren't biting. I gave it a try anyway and enjoyed being on the water, Beaver Lake is so pretty.

    It does pay to fish when they are biting!!!

    That does look great!!

    Maybe the thing to do would be to book two weeks at the hotel, and enjoy both "the event" and the time before/after.

    I will get better pics of the Lusso tonight. Richard is from same hometown in Kansas as Jennie and me. He bought the car in college and has owned it for 42 years! I remember being 13 years old and seeing the car around town. I ran into Richard at Laguna Seca in 2004, we exchanged rides, first vintage Ferrari I drove and first "modern" Ferrari he drove. Richard is a great guy, talented driver, and impressive collection. Couple pictures of the same car in 2004.

    Boy, seeing an A2 Quattro sure brings back memories. I had a silver ur-Quattro: wish i still had it. Incredibly fun car.

    Looks great! Now I'm really sorry I haven't made it to this event. I'm working on a few of the guys from Minnesota. It's not well-known here.

    I hope we can get back out there next year. Really missing the event and the gang. Looks like a great turnout this year so far. Too bad the fishing sucks, but I'm at work, so the fishing is still awesome!

    Jennie gets home from Oxford this afternoon and I'm anxious to see Mia too. Chris warned we would need more than our usual shorts and jeans for the Saturday night event, but even with my additional elaborate wardrobe of ghostbuster jump suit, disco pants, camos, or fishing pants with bait guts I was still rejected entry. :D ;)

    had a nice flight back.
