A little slow today, the threat of rain probably kept some people home. We were very lucky (and contrary to the weather channel forecast for 80% POP after 10 am) with little to no rain until around 3:30 and then it was light, even as we speak it is just overcast.

I am sure tomorrow will bring the crowds.

I was very pleased with another problem free three hour drive out in Isabel this morning and was delighted to find that with my ignition timing tuning (now including vacuum advance), my mileage went from ~10 mpg up to 15 mpg. 55 degrees total timing (including vacuum advance) did wonders!

Having fun.

More tomorrow.

55? Really? That seems like way too much advance. Either way, glad she is running good.

Rain's gone without any real "severe" component, two pretty nice days in the 70's are ahead. Looking to have worked out the best it possibly could have if we had to accept some rain.

Now, if I can get the wife to leave the room I'd be all set!
