I don't own a printer or a GPS. Can someone print me a copy of the pacenotes in dead-tree format? I promise to re-use then recycle it after the event.

Also, does anyone know of a place that can mount and balance a tire in Fonda at 0800 on a Sunday? Because I'd really like to know.

I'd really try to make an appointment at a Kost tire: I'm pretty sure the tire in question is a certain potenza, no? I think you should meet him in albany and make him pay for that little extra distance, or find a garage in amsterdam or schenectady.

We could always try mounting by hand, too

Or you could roll on three LRR Potenzas and one Blizzak all-season Insight tire. Let me know before 9pm tonight, and I'll bring a Blizzak mounted on an Insight rim, and/or a bare wheel. Whatever I bring is not riding the course in the newly lightened Subaru, though.

Ah, he's got a Bizzak on a steelie? Well, my Blizzak has an Insight sitting on it, and I need some sleep, so I'll just bring the Insight rim, and hopefully we can get the Potenza mounted tomorrow.

See y'all tomorrow, and good luck! Let's all put some great numbers in our fuel logs.

Just got back from Jersey. Darin, I emailed the route instructions with mileages to all of you on August 5th. But don't worry as I also have copies printed off and will hand them out at the driver's meeting.
