We decided to check out how we are suppose to get over to the NEON Garage for the Kolbart Kampout with my chair and his scooter. Yes, hubby rented some wheels for the weekend. So glad he did. Our tickets said that the Kampout began after qualifying at 5:30-8:00 PM. Qualifying started at 4:30 and it was 4:00 when we decided to check it out. The people running the shuttles had already been taking handicap people over early. Wasn't expecting that.
2012 with the grandson, but there was no way I could manage that distance this weekend. I'm still in PT and still have limits that shouldn't be pushed. Not to mention for the umpteenth time hubby's hip.
Once in the infield we browsed around and watched the inspections.
We did see a lot of the drivers come out. Hubby was happy as he was parked in front of the mega TV, able to watch the track and get the running order at the same time. He's hoping that the upgrades PIR will be doing, will be like this. He would buy pit passes again if they do. I totally agree!
Once the ceremony was over we headed over to the stage to see Danica Patrick. She is so cute. Jimmie Johnson was to come out next but we decided to start on our way out. Hubby's scooter's battery was really low. He wasn't sure if he would make it all the way back to the RV. I had a full charge still so I took off on my own while he hitched a ride. It was kind of cool to drive my chair through the tunnel!
Talk about being in the right place at the right time and meeting the right people. It made for an extraordinarily, awesome adventure today!
