    Definitely a lot of fun - great to meet many of you :)

    Favorite moments:

    Some fun little stints on the freeway stretch...

    When JLM, Sunny, Beth and I took off on a fun sprint carving up some corners. I was following Beth and can she ever drive! I told her I'd love for my wife to get some seat-time with her on a future run. In fact, everyone seemed to be extremely competent, great group...I also followed JLM and Sunny for awhile and they just fly - Sunny what do you have in that Jag, you were also carrying a couple passengers!

    FerrariBoy & Dad, we exhanged leads a bit at the end - love the 308 GTS QV (still my favorite car design of all-time).

    Here's some pics:

    I believe the proper phrase would be "tossing around a couple passengers" I was all over the back seat :)

    Thanks for the kind words. I give my passengers a good time and help them find religion. I'm used to driving the car at its limits, something people take for granted in these cars. I would be a 'privateer' of the old days if I had the money to back a racing career :)

    My mechanic said it best, a comment I'll say offline due to adult references, hehe.

    Thanks for the compliment on my driving! I was a little worried about being the only girl driver and trying to keep up with the guys. It was a total blast! I'm going to try to go on every drive I can, I think I may become a driving junkie! I had a great time. Your wife is welcome to ride with me anytime!

    I can see my "Ferrari" boy has been hard at work posting again, so i guess it was time for me to register on the new board and toss my 2 cents in.

    I want to thank all that have responded to his picture posting problems (he just needed to be shown how to reduce the file size without the loss of clarity). He and I had a blast on yesterdays drive... and wanted to share the pics.

    This was our 1st drive of any distance in the Ferrari. We went to CC a while back, but ran into Oil pressure problems while trying to keep up with Byron. Needless to say I was a bit nervous... still getting familliar with how she handles, what she can do, what sounds and reads normal on the guages. Books and Manuals are good, but this drive was sure a GREAT test!

    I must say that I was blown away how well the 308 held to the winding road. It was fun to press it harder than ever before. I have never driven so hard... my hand prints are still formed in the steering wheel. I did not have the SKILL or the horsepower as the vetrans, but it was a blast trying to keep pace.

    THANKYOU everyone for making this a great experience for the both of us!

    Ron

    PS: Did anyone WIN at the casino?

    I dunno, but I've got 5 Aces, which beats Jordan's Royal Flush.
