Shasta (The Wonder Husky) 1994-2007
Friday, May 04, 2007
Kelsey was very specific about what car she wanted to get in place of the del Sol (she had the insurance money as her base) and it took about 3 weeks but I finally found her a 1993 Toyota Celica Convertible on eBay and David and I went to pick it up on April 29th. (I will post pictures when I get them downloaded)
More of March
While she was there, she and her friends had one of those custom pictures done. They chose "The Munsters" and decided to have all boys be girls and all the girls be boys (Kelsey is Grandpa Munster):
She had a great time and got back in time for her 17th birthday. Her friends took her out for a birthday party at Chuckie Cheese
Catching Up-March 2007
And here he is taking off from the starting line:
His time was about 95 seconds and he's looking forward to running the Autocross in April to better that time.
After the autocross we drove around a little and then went to our hotel. The next morning we heading towards Rockingham (a county seat) and found these ruins on the way:
Turns out they are the ruins of the Great Mill that burned to the ground in 1972. This is what it used to look like:
It's amazing to see these ruins just sitting my the side of a major street. Spooky and wonderful all at the same time. There is a waterfall behind the mill (seen through one of the windows):
Better view of the Waterfall
The sound of the rushing water was so beautiful. We spent about a half an hour just walking around and made a point to do some research on the mill. It's nice to see a piece of history even if it is no longer "pristine".
