We plan to have the time of our lives. I'm getting so excited. Just about 6 more weeks and we will be on that flight to Scotland. 12 hours on a plane, IDK if I will be able to handle that part. All I can say is, I'm gonna be drinkin A Lot. LOL

As far as food, we will just have to take the plunge. I'm not packing a bunch of food. They way out isn't so bad, we only have an hour and 1/2 lay over. It's coming back home that's gonna be the pain.

I hate to say this but I think I I have to......


I'm not sure what happened to this place, but it's hard to see a place that has so many members this dead. It hurts me to see a place live a slow death like I'm seeing happen here. I know it's summer and all but there's more to it then that IMO. I really have to know in my mind what the hell happened here ? Is it because NASCAR has put on such lame action over the last few years ? Has the lack of active leadership in the last few years taken it's toll ? { I know Checkers and others are trying and I mean no disrespect to anyone } I have been a member here for what I consider a decent amount of time, and I  think that if this place does not liven up I'm done. I really like a lot of people here and it pains me to make this post. If there is any really valid reason why this ship is sinking please let me know... I'm not gonna harp on this subject, but I want to tell my friends here how I really feel. I have seen so many great racing boards over the years just die with out explanation. With all that being said, I think I'm done saying what I have say about this. Please don't get mad at me if I ride off into the sunset.

 Brian, I understand your comments. For me, I've seen plenty of great independent NASCAR forums disappear, especially during the past 5 years or so.

 Brian France has accomplished 2 things since taking charge of NASCAR:

 1. He's ruined NASCAR's product, which is and always should be great racing on the track.

 2. The results of issue #1 has alienated longtime fans and they're not coming back.

 We should be lighting up the boards with talk about Silly Season and everything else going on, but instead it's mostly dead.

 The writing is on the wall. No need to apologize for something none of us have any control over.

OMG and what a silly season it is.

Yeah, I love this place too. I hate to lose good friends. But, I think with Facebook, and other larger venues, we don't have much going for us, but us.

I got a full time job now, I have not worked this much in years. But, that is no excuse for me. I should still be here putting up posts of interest. Thanks for the wakeup RR. I will do better. :)

I did belong to a few racing Forums that bit the dust, and its sad.
Like Checker was saying with Facebook & Twitter that is where its at now.
I really miss the people that once were on here that are now gone.  :(

Well said.
I "lurk" more than participate anymore.
To me..........the racing is just not as good anymore.
I do not like "The Chase"..........never did.
NASCAR Racing week after week should be about consistancy in performance, not a trumped up sudo play off system.
The last 10 races off the season is a sham............with NASCAR manipulated points system.

Sure, the economy has something to do with it, but the product has changed and fans don't like it as much anymore.

As far as forums..............I never participated in one before Nascardiac........and probably won't again.
I hope Nascardiac does not go away, but like WSF posted.......technology is changing leaving us me behind.
Heeeer's yur sign!!!

First full day in Scotland, toured Glasgow City. Wow what history. I can't remember any of it. Although I did learn that there are a lot of movies done here. Brad Pitt's World War Z was filmed here. The people crack me up when they talk. But, I'm getting used to it all. We have lot's more to take in. Going to the Botanical Garden's, and the Glasgow Museum tomorrow. There are a lot of original documents there, will be interesting to see.

It rains nearly every day, then lets up some, then rains more. It's mostly fog mist. We are having a great time. Not letting the weather keep us down at all.

 Remember, "If it ain't Scottish, it's crap !!!"

 Mike Myers used to do a skit on SNL and that's what he always yelled.
