Pocono

10 posts in this topic

Well all, looks like this weekend the good 'ol, most likely boring, Pocono race. Any predictions? Unfortunately, I'm guessing Shrub will most likely be near the front all day. The kid's on a heck of a roll. I expect Biffle, Edwards, and Denny Hamlin to run well also. Not sure what the Hendrick crew will have this weekend, but Tony Jr. said they had a good test session there so they are optimistic.

I read where Gordon and Dale Jr. both heaped quite a bit of criticism on the track after the test session. Dale Jr. said it needed to be repaved, and Gordon basically said the place is so out of date, that he wonder's why they need to race there twice a season.

Sounds like the Hendrick crew may already be making excuses. Yes, the mouth will probably run up front as he is on a very hot streak. One wonders if he can continue to finish they way he has been all season.

No worse than I. We need a lucky charm in our pocket to get a little higher in the standings.

Pocono and California are two tracks that barely deserve one race each season. Placing these duds on the schedule twice a year is absurd.

So, I shouldn't be too bummed that I will be on the road and cannot watch or listen? grin The other races where I have been traveling had some exciting parts that I missed. We would get updates from our friends on what was going on. Hmmm. Maybe hubby needs Sirius for Father's Day? whistle

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
