Anyone going to the Knox Mtn hillclimb 21-22 May 2016?

Thinking about showing up for this as a spectator, wondering how many other 510 folks might be there. Anybody making plans to attend?

Always a good time. Been going for years.

Wish I could go this year, but seems my youngest son wants to get married that weekend this year, so I think I know what the right choice is. See you all there!!! ha, not.....

I was thinking of driving up for the day and hike the hill. Will keep you posted.

So, anyone heading up to Knox? I see maybe 3 510's going to be there, Cam Thorkelson for one. Wouter is taking his crazy fast rotary up again so that will be fun to watch.

Now, the downside is that the weather is projected to actually not be very good, especially for Saturday, so I am still mulling over.

I had been planning to go, for months already, but have to cancel out. We're renovating our kitchen and it turns out "everything" is arriving right now-- cabinets, countertops, appliances. So the long weekend is suddenly pre-empted by domestic duties.

Mind you, progress on my 510 has been slower than expected, too. The suspension mods I started on months ago are still not done, meaning that I couldn't take that car down to Kelowna anyway. And that was half of the point, getting a nice long road trip in the 510 to connect with some of you 510 guys.

Going to Knox is still on my bucket list though, so maybe next year.

I will be leaving White Rock about 4:30 and should be at the Hill by 8:30. Day looks to have showers but who knows for Kelowna.

No, that is a screen shot from the reservoir camera just down below Turn 3, that I grabbed this morning.

I just keep an eye on the weather this way. Either way I will be prepared for anything.

What...No one else wants to get up at 3:30 Am and drive for four hours at 130KMH, walk and stand for another 6 hours in possible rain, wind, heat, have crap for food..... and then drive 4 hours back.......?

Wait a minute......
