Once I got the proper amount of clothing on, I was off to my favorite hill. Once at the base of the hill I couldn't remember why I liked it so much. I just wanted to take it easy up the hill since it was my first time out for the season. I got about 100 yards up the hill and I quickly realized that I had way to many clothes on. Oh well to late now. Long story short, made it to the top 1 minute faster than last year, not that I was even paying any attention to the time, but it was a good first ride.

Devin gave me a ticket to the Disturbed concert for my birthday, so I met him and his friend Jesse before the concert. We had heard that if we wanted to be on the floor we had to get there early and get a special wristband that they were only giving out about 3000 of them. We ended up getting there about four hours early. We took turns waiting in line, then a couple of my friends showed up so they took turns as well. This is a picture early, later in the evening the line was huge. It wrapped all the way around the parking lot and beyond.
We ended up getting the special wrist bands and I made (pushed) my way to the front and center of the stage. I did not see anyone I knew for the rest of the time. I was at the rail for the entire 3 hours of the concert. I think I got elbowed and squished a few hundred times, but it was worth it.

Ok, lets just say Michelle got me this time. I asked M if we were doing anything on Friday, she said no everyone was busy so we were going to go out to dinner on Sunday for my 40th birthday. I thought that sucked, and was a little pissy. I couldn't (and didn't) believe M had not planed something, even just dinner for us two. As it turns out everyone was in it but me.
Rick had me down at the race shop for a couple hours. Then I went for a ride along with Brian, well actually Tony (i think). Brian was actually off duty but Karen and Rick had talked him into giving me a ride that night (all part of the plan).
This was our first victim. Speeding, 43 in a 35 zone. It was funny, the officer told me that he had asked the driver if he knew why he was pulled over?
The driver said, "Yes, because I wasn't wearing my seat belt."
The officer said, "Yes,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, and you were speeding."
The officer ended up letting him go on a warning.
I then switched and rode with Brian. Right away the dispatcher called about a noise complaint. So Brian headed out of town at a high rate of speed. I was thinking this was going to be good. I said I hope its not my house, because we were headed down my street. Sure enough we past my house and the driveway was full of cars. I put two and two together. I told Brian we can come back, lets go to the call first. I guess that was made up as well.
Brain told me we could go out next Friday night, so I will take him up on that. So I will post that later.
lots of friends and family came over and had a good time eating, drinking and playing racing games up stairs. Here is the cake M had made. Coconut filling, SOOOOO good.
Thank you to everyone who lied and deseaved me.......

So far I have just been trying to make laps and stay out of the way and finish the races to improve my rating.
