I am beginning to understand just how he felt

It was the White Rabbit in Alice And Wonderland who said. "I'm late, I'm late for a very important date."

As I sat down in my den tonight to relax I began doing some calculations in my head but it didn't take long until I had the calander in front of me and pen in hand. As I did the math the word safari came to mind. Safari is an old Swahili word meaning a long journey and indeed it seemed at the time like it was in fact going to a long journey and such a long time to wait. That was September of 2006 and and here it is already in the middle of May!

Considering the car still needs a dash with gauges, battery cables, fuel pump and hoses, all susspension, all windows, fenders, hood and trunk, seats, seat belts and window nets, navigation and radio equipment, oh yeah and don't forget the engine, transmission, shifter and rear end, exhaust, radiator, hoses, belts, trailer maintence, and God knows what here are some interesting numbers...

There are only 92 days until we are supposed to be testing at Thunderhill.

There are only 134 days until we are supposed to be testing at Sears Point.

There are only 159 days until we leave with the Coyote Convoy on our way to Mexico.

Keeping in mind I made myself a promise I would have the car COMPLETLY finished and ready no later than the end of September to help the stress and "What-if" factors, that means there are only 142 days left. Like the saying goes in Adam Sandlers movie The Waterboy...
"You can do it."
