Was going to give a longer synopsis, but haven't found time/motivation yet. The high points are:

- School was good. Learned a lot. The driver's break-out session was particularly useful, though I really wish I could have done the co-driver's as well. Oh well, there is always next time.

- Driving on dirt is fun.

- Did awesome in the rallycross. Ended up getting the highest chick time, and put in a mid-pack time overall. Considering this was my first time ever driving on dirt, that's not shabby at all.

- As I expected, my driving style fits better with sliding in the dirt. I thought it would, but it's nice to have it confirmed.

- Did I mention that sliding around on dirt is fun?

- Met a lot of cool people.

I think I will end up volunteering for Rim. It's a good way to get involved, and it sounds like fun.

*stares in awe* Wow... I can't even drive dirt in GT3. I think I'd be doubly scared to do it in RL. Congrats on the highest chick time. :)

Gah! lucky! I didn't realize you were doing rally school this weekend. Were you driving your car?

*grin* Yeah, it was this weekend. I have the schedule for the other two schools this year. Annoyingly, the one that's "close" to me is also the weekend before a convention that I work staff for, so I probably won't be able to make it. *pout*

Yup, I drove my car. Before the end I had been thinking that I could tell you with a clear conscience that it would be perfectly find for you to take MSP-sama and rallycross her. But the rollover kind of dented that thought... But my car had no problem handling it. She didn't even get that dirty!

I've been back & forth on taking my baby RallyXing... of course if the group that hosts the events here doesn't get their act together and come up with dates it will end up being a rather moot point for debate. =/

I think I'd want a rollbar in if I did start doing that regularly. I want to get a 4 or 5point for AutoXing anyway eventually (MSP seats have nowhere near enough side bolstering and a harness might be a solution that wouldn't get me booted from DS) so it would be a good excuse to invest.

Glad you had fun *envy*jealous*envy* - where's the event not near you then?

I... have no idea what any of that means, but it sounds good, so congratulations!

You are so awesome!! Thank you for being willing to be happy for my sucesses, even if they're in things that you aren't interested in. I really means a LOT to me!

Of course I'm happy for your sucesses! I just feel a bit bad because I know I don't comprehend quite what it was that happened, and so probably can't really fully appreciate what you did. But even so... congratulations, again! It sounds very cool, and you're happy about it, so it must be a very good accomplishment!
