If you ever thought 10,000 plus horsepower, fire breathing race cars, racing side by side at speeds well over 300 mph was extreme – try four 10,000 plus horsepower, fire breathing race cars racing side by side at over 300 mph. That is exactly what you saw at the inaugural Denso Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Drag Strip.

So far, so good. I did have one reel look and feel a little more used than in its description, but it was still a pretty good deal. I've purchased mainly fishing reels ...

Fishing Report

Having a week off from work couldn't have come at a more perfect time. Aside from a few gusts of wind, an occasional sea lion, and a little rain, my time out on the water has been great. I've been fishing mostly by myself, which has been just what the Dr. ordered. As the work year for me is beginning to wind down, there's been a lot of time to reflect on a lot of things. Mostly, I'm thankful for having such an understanding spouse. I'm definitely not a marriage expert but at the beginning ...
