Default GWiz and I are doing THIS in Vegas!!!

Despite the Maserati GT that I have for 3 days, and the C7 for the balance of the trip, we are doing THIS!!!

We're going to each get 5 laps per car in 3 different cars.

This is what we have reserved. For me:
  • Corvette C8 Z51
  • Lamborghini Aventador
  • Audi R8 V10 Plus

GWiz gets:
  • Lamborghini Huracan Performante
  • Mercedes AMG GT R
  • McLaren 570S

Mom is getting a ride-along in:
  • Ferrari 488
  • Porsche GT3


I don't even have to buy those 2 go pros for 800 bucks. Only $140 for all 3 drivers, all cars, 2 camera angles per car.

If I can spend $1800 on a bottle of Scotch, I can damn well spend some quality track time with my 22 year old daughter who has epic driving skills.

Just for a frame of reference:

36 Laps in my Z06 cost me $2,000 in Hoosiers

We will be getting a total of 34 laps between the 3 of us, and dual camera angle videos with the data overlays for $2,129.

AND, we're booked on the 18th which is my mom's actual birthday!!!

Not a fan of Scotch, but car fun has all of it beat anyway. Be safe and have a great time!

My first gun is on the near-term radar. And in true Craig fashion, I'm sure I go overboard with lots of guns very quickly. I am an OCD zealot. When I latch onto something, it's all or nothing.....hence why I haven't started flying airplanes.

gun prices are up a bit lately, if you can find them, but worse is the cost of ammo. it's running about 3x what it was about a year ago, with no sign of coming back to "normal". reloading you say? cool, same problem, finding and affording components.

i have 3 pistols i'm selling at the local gun shop. i'll have to call them tomorrow and see if any have sold.

I have not, nor ever will, get shitfaced on a 25 year old bottle of Macallan. I can do that easily enough with Heineken are some much cheaper whisky. Macallan is for very special occasions.

Then just got to figure out where/how to get the next one.

Im already in FL. And I love Scotch and fast cars. And I have my competition license, along with firesuit, helmet, etc.

I have some 25 YO Highland Park I could bring - unless its gone.

I saw a bottle of 40 YO Highland Park in the Duty Free store in the Toronto airport last year. I texted a photo to my wife and said I needed it. She replied So buy it. At almost $5k CAD I didnt bring it home.

Holy shit! Where in Florida? We got to make this happen. The 3 of us can sit on the water's edge at Scott's place, finish the 25 Mac, and if we time it right, do some autocrossing at my venue in some fast cars!!!

A few years ago, my accountant suggested that with all the flying I was doing, that I should get my pilot's license and invest in an airplane club.

I really like Macallan but have never had any that went for that kind of money. I did find a local restaurant that if you are seated by 6:00 their bar prices are half off. I ordered a Macallan (menu did not say what age) but it was $7.00. As soon as the waitress brought it, I ordered another. She laughed and said she would wait until 5:58 to place the order at the bar.

The 21 year Mac I bought was 650. The 25 year was 1800. What a difference 4 years make. They have 8, 12, 15, 18, ... I think. It's exponential in price as you go up in years.
