  • I'm still here

    Hey everyone. I've been missing from here for a while. We moved to a more suitable home, i.e. MUCH more garage space, newer and nicer. We have been renovating our previous home for sale soon. I still drive "CC" when I can and to prove it happened...These photos were taken six miles from our new place.

      Wondered what happened to you. Congrats on the new home & garage.
      Your TR is really a treat to look at, particularly with the hardtop.

              Bet that piece of road is an incredible cruise top down on a fall day with leaves in full color.

                From a drive on that road in November, 2012.

                  Do you live on the WEst side of the Parkway by Fonatana or the East side by Cosby?

                    Scooth13,
                    I live just Southeast of Maryville TN and that photo was taken 6 miles from home near the middle of the Parkway closer to Walland and Townsend than to either Fonatana or Cosby. I very much wanted to meet up with you guys at Trials but moving was a pain and took a month.

                  Gorgeous shot. As much as I would love to wind up my 6 when I travelled on such roads, I always worried about some animal jumping in front of me. I think of all of us, Ken had the worst experience with the cow. Still amazed at that one.

                    Yeah I remember Ken's cow. I've been driving sports cars on this road and others like it in the area since 2002 and never had an animal larger than a squirrel get in the way. I fear hitting bicycles more.

                      Ouch! What a bummer for you, sorry to hear it. Hopefully it recovered well and you are back to normal.

I cut the heck out of my lower leg (70 stitches) and that set me back a week on the moving plus I couldn't drive a clutch for a while. Be warned - It's pretty gross but if anyone wants to see the leg injury, click the links here:

                        It left a scar but I was lucky not to have cut the tendon or a nerve. I had to stay off of it for 3 days, I spent 3 days in a support boot and then didn't need it. It took me 9 days to walk a mile and by 14 days I was doing 4 miles a day, like my usual workout.

                        BTW, that's a great shot of your car on the Dragon.

                      Hey Greg, welcome back!
                      Just read this and dayum, that's a hell of a cut! Glad you're healing. You can make up for lost time by making TRials this year...

                      Cheers,
