Sure if you don't mind following my Dingo pulling the Cobra! :D I have learned that it is best to trailer the car anywhere I go JUST IN CASE something breaks. Also it is good to have a trailer just in case some one else has problems...I can put their car on the trailer and drive mine! :D :thumbsup:

This is probably closer to what Jackson would see, wouldn't it be? http://www.weather.com/weather/local/USGA0032?x=14&lswe=Augusta%2CGA&lswa=WeatherLocalUndeclared&whatprefs=&y=5

Right now, it looks excellent!

Well yours is for Augusta and mine is for Jackson, SC. Now granted they are exactly the same! Seeing that Augusta is only 20 minutes from Jackson! :D ;) ;) ;)

I hate weathermen! The are always wrong or wishy-washy about what they say! I hope the rain goes away. I am looking forward to this weekend! So the call on whether we'll attend or not will be later on in the week? I'll keep watching for the decision if the bad weather persists!

Pulling the Cobra it was three hours so you should be able to make it in less than that. Maybe 2.5 hours?? Go to www.expedia.com and use their map function. It works much better than mapquest! :D :thumbsup: I'm waiting to hear if a friend of mine is going to come with me. If he and his wife are going to go I won't leave until Saturday morning. Call me Thursday and I'll give you a deffinate answer.

Dad-gummed weathermen got it ALL wrong! *sigh* Oh well, there WILL be a rain date!

Where do I apply to be a weatherman? I can't be any worse with chance than these guys are with their fancy equipment!

They changed it to May 17th Jon. There is some kind of Ford drag event that weekend. (April 19th)

The date is changed to May 17, 2003 because it was on Easter weekend and we just couldn't do that. The date in May was picked because it was after Mother's Day. Hopefully, we will be in the dry period by then. Although yesterday was great temperature wise, the rain that wasn't supposed to come came. I will poste everyone's name who is already preregistered so you know you will not have to pay on the rain date.

Looks like CMP will have to suffice for us. :bounce:
