Get ready everybody..I had the time of my life out on the Holland Motorsports Track learning to drive a full-size bus! I got a real taste of what it will be like to drive in their upcoming Crash-A-Rarma event on Saturday! First, I had to climb into one of those track suits and let me tell you..a racing helmet over earrings is a no-no. Almost ended up with new piercings trying to get the thing off. But anyway..what a rush it was to floor that bus thru the figure eights while trying NOT to hit the walls! I can only imagine what the race will be like when 12-14 buses are all trying to avoid each other out there. My story runs Friday on AM BUFFALO and you may see some of it on the news. Get this..they are also crashing cars with boats and the enduro race with over 100 cars on the track at once! I can see why this event draws over 7000 people! ..and if kids get there by 4, they can get a ride in the buses before the 6pm race.
..PS..for those interested in the Paris trip..it's expected to be AWESOME! E--mail me at lpellegr@wkbw.com for a full color brochure, or call toll-free 1-800-826-2266. That's the number for Holiday Vacations. My Germany/Austria pics just came back and WOW, such great memories caught on film! Can't wait to pick one for our annul Christmas card. Talk to you soon...Linda P.
