Know what you mean. Some years like that for sure.

This year has been different, wet for a change. Accuweather calling for temps in the 70's (and the weatherman is always right )

Re: 2018 Texas Hill Country 500 - Nov 2-4, 2018

I am hoping that I will still be able to go. I got stung by a hornet that had some very bad bacteria on it's stinger. I spent 8 days in the hospital due to my lower right leg going sepsis because of the sting on the strongest IV antibiotics. I came home with 17 more days of high dose IV antibiotics delivered thru a PICC line. This also has uncovered a blockage in my heart, I will have a heart cath in a few days, as soon as it can be scheduled. And I may still have to have a pacemaker according to the cardiologist. I will figure it out in a couple of weeks.

God bless you and I hope all goes well. FWIW, my father lived 30 years with a pacemaker and the last 10 years or so it's the only reason his heart beat. He did go through 2 or 3 of them in that time. We'll pray.

Just realized this is getting very close. Thank goodness for the recent rains, should be plenty of lush green grass for comfy camping, I think the creek is running again. Need to get busy getting things ready!!!

Kind of a late comer to the ride but we have a room at Americas Best on the 3rd. Will be camping with everyone else on the 2nd. Can we make a donation at site for food?
