Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itUp at my usual 5:30 this morning and felt kinda chilly. Hmm checked the outside temperature 48F so our Blue Flame fired up and quickly warmed us up inside. Glad we hooked it up last week, sips at propane and totally silent.
By 7:30 it had warmed up nicely so headed out for a nice quiet walkabout town for my first 2 miles of the day. Now just because we can enjoyed reading outside in the wonderful morning sunshine reading for a while.
Then atenoon we drove over to Bright a couple of miles from here to partake in the Car show and BBQ in Jacob's Memory. He died last week in a single car crash a young 23 years old. He worked as a machinist with this father at Engine Technology Racing Engines in Cambridge Ontario. His Chevelle apparently developed over 800 horsepower. Did not know him but his girl friend Rachelle is the daughter of a fellow worker/supervisor from Egar Tool and Die (my last Job) and lives right next to where we park here at Camp Awesome in Plattsville. I did not know until today that it was his car we heard leaving their place most nights when we were camped here. He was also a volunteer fire-fighter with the Bright Fire department for 4 years.

This is a Tribute video of His legendary burnouts if you care to view it

We arrived at the park in Bright and waited for the cars to arrive, apparently over 200 and took quite a while to pass the park and pull in and park.
