Ha! The Black Beauty definitely has paddock access since it IS essential. (at least to me)

The other Mrs. OB took spa days, running trails, restaurants during the day and firepits, beer and alcohol in the evening with me.

Well done OB. Glad the Mrs is able to make those trips with you and have the chance to kick back. Also glad the Black Beauty gets a chance to stretch its legs I'm thinking about taking my CEO to the BMW high speed driving class next year so she can flip the afterburner on her 4 series and feel more comfortable doing it. After all, jets were made to fly.

That would be called an oasis in your side of the world.

Lake Lanier has over 800 miles of shoreline with all the coves and fingers. Really had a nice stay but sucked that I only got the chance to see it in the dark once the event started. Leaving at 5 in the morning to head for the circuit and was getting back around 9 or 10 at night.

Indeed brother, "happy wife, happy life.

We are off to Pigeon Forge today for a few days for me to pause and have some relaxation before my 2021 season starts when the new Duqueine D08 cars arrive from France at the end of this month.
