A Few Final Observations

Observation #1: No matter how many pictures you take, you will still miss 90% of what is going on.

Observation #2: No matter how fast you drive, the weather always catches up.

Observation #3: Don't arrive to early, you will get the sucky seats (as in the back 40).

Observation #4: Have a map (and use it). The 66 signs may be missing!!!

Observation #5: The Motor Tour is Kewl. Volunteer to help next time.
