A broader look at it. the color is down in the left hand corner only.
About 9:00 Bill asked if I wanted to go with him over to the radio control airfield a few blocks from us. Sure why not. This is the view from the field. It is also part of the view from our back yard. See the pointy mountain on the left. The area is The Wetlands, a protected area and park.
Only about five people there flying. One man had two big airplanes. This one is almost big enough to lift the truck off the ground. It is a double wing plane.
Same owner with his other plane. It was quick and loud.
As soon as it was in the air I couldn't follow it with the camera.
We were leaving the RC park when we spotted something really interesting taking place in the Sam Boyd stadium parking lot. Car racing! We stopped in the street and watched through the fence for a while.
Go to this website to learn more about LVRSCCA - Las Vegas Regional Sports Car Club of America. Really interesting web site. I guess we could have entered the Mustang if either of us were nervy enough to do it.
From their website.
What is Autocross
Autocross, is done in a large parking lot, with a twisty course laid out with rubber orange traffic cones.
Cars are run through the course one at a time, and timed with an electronic timing system.
It is extremely safe, completely legal, and most importantly, a whole lot of fun ! Warning: can lead to a life long addiction !
Don't worry about your vehicle... We have classes for just about anything and all levels of modification. From completely stock to full race cars and everything in between.
After each set of cars went through the course the go carts came out. Boy they were really fast.
In the parking lot of Sam Boyd Stadium. Last weekend there was a Monster Truck Jam in the Stadium. The cars with numbers on them were entries. Cost them $40 to enter.
Just some pictures as we walked through the parking area to the racing area.
He was really fast. Tires squealing and dust flying.
This is an Oldsmobile - I saw the name on the back of it.
Then we came on home and just vegged out the rest of the day. Felt good to do nothing.
