Not In A Good Mood…
I’ve been coming to this track for a long time…a very long time. In that time, I’ve never seen traffic like I did this morning. It all started when I missed my exit for Kessler Blvd off of I-65. From there it was all downhill. By taking the next exit, I suddenly found myself in an area that my lack of speaking Spanish did not serve me well. We had to pull over, consult Google maps, and found our way to a side street. Big mistake.
We sat on said side street for two hours and moved about a half mile in that time. Meanwhile, the other half of my party that had a parking pass outside the track, called to let me know that they had already crossed 16th Street and were waiting at the gate when the bomb went off. They called on a regular basis to express their dismay that I wasn’t in the track yet. Grrrr!
To make a long, miserable story short. After leaving our hotel at 4:30, and sitting in traffic for almost three hours, we made it into the track by 8:30 and into the Media center by 9:00.
Anyway, we’re headed out to the pits to catch the vintage cars go by. Back in a bit. Hopefully, my mood will improve dramatically (is it too early for beer?).
