I’ve got some good stuff up for you today and have some in the can for tomorrow as I am taking today off. My brother in-law is in town from California and I have not seen him in years. He is a big baseball fan like me so we hope to be able to watch some playoff games and catch up. Go Brewers!

We had a nice time as we checked out the new Weedsport Kartway on Sunday. It was a beautiful summer day and the place was wonderful. We were impressed with the facility and the amount of karts in the pit area as I believe the number was 165.
 
We did have to leave early for a family issue but fortunately everything worked out there. We’ll be back as like I said both Allie and I were very impressed with what we saw. And the racing was intense. We’re glad we sat this one out as Allie is not ready for that kind of action just yet.
