That photo was taken when it was still raining on Friday afternoon. My comments about drying up nicely refer to Saturday morning. Sorry for the confusion.

BTW for all. I am off the lakebed until sometime Tuesday. I may post some of other peoples pictures for you.

Yes, it's true....there are a few of us out there that don't want to advertise our lives. However it's a great tool if you're hiring people. You'd be surprised what you can learn about a prospective employee

Only 0.13" of rain from this storm when ~0.5" were forecast, we got very lucky. Today the forecast is for only 0.06" and no rain in the forecast for the near future (10 Days) my hope that things will dry out is still alive.

Thanks Jason. That means a lot. The REAL hard work is done by our "younger" staff. It would never happen without them. I get worn out too easily!

We had answered prayers folks. Only 0.09" in this last storm and no rain forecast through Tue 2/7/17! I will be back on the lakebed today.

It was a very productive weekend despite the rain, a lot of progress was made in the new production trailer (cleaned, new countertops and shelving built), we got the old production trailer cleaned out and organized, more tents up, cable laid in the trenches and more I'm not remembering. Everyone got to go into town and shower, do laundry, and spend some time together away from working on sunday (got my ass handed to me bowling, I am not good at that, haha).

I can't wait to get back out and see the progress on Friday!

Day 12

Tuesday was a gorgeous day! Here are some progress pics from Tuesday afternoon.

I can't express how happy it makes me to know that from here on, at least for the next 10 days, we are only going to get drier every day!

On the Live show Dave said we are only driving 80' of last years course. Everything else about the qualifying course is new.
