Saturday Indulgence

A couple of weeks ago Jill and I were trying to decide what to do with our Saturday.

As I was going through my Emails I noticed that I had received a message about motorcycle racing out at the Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele.

My day was instantly planned. The thrill of motorcycles screaming around the track, me wishing I had one of my own, and figuring out how to take decent pictures sounded like a great Saturday indeed.

Jill was not as easily convinced. But with the notion of a picnic, a good book in hand, the IPod, and the cheap admission price, she was up for an adventure.

Admission was only 5 bucks since this was a pretty small event. We had access to pretty much the entire facility. Unfortunately we arrived at the beginning of the lunch time break.

We wandered around until I finally found a schedule and determined that today was mostly practices and tomorrow were the actually races.

Oh well, it was still fun... and I think Jill actually enjoyed it a little bit too.

Thanks Jill for indulging me with a few hours of watching high powered machines circle the track and shooting a whole lot of bad pictures.

Hopefully I have learned a few things about shooting fast moving objects from a long distance in the bright afternoon sun.

Someday I will figure out how to take decent pictures.

The Kart racing pictures turned out a lot better than the motorcycles.

Jill's indulgence of the day was purchasing a new Modbe swimming suit.

Here are the rest of the Motorcycle Pictures and the Kart Pictures.

Seeing the picture of Jill reading the book reminds me of a shot I have when the YSA group here went to a Rangers Baseball game. One of the guys who came along was so engrossed with his magazine I had to take a picture. I zoomed in so he wouldn't notice and the magazine article he was reading was titled "How to Build a Better Browser". My thought, why did you come?

At least Jill was being supportive of her husband. Oh, and this guy is still single!

So when I saw the first picture I thought you guys were on the motorcycles... I was thinking humm. Anyway, kudos for getting out and doing something before the snow hit! Also, if you are looking for a quick weekend getaway this summer to Chicago, I have great news. We live here!! See you soon.
