OutSMARTing The Dragon 2016

Good afternoon everyone. Just wanted to confirm that OTD will be returning to Fontana August 18-21, 2016. Event registration will open up on April 1, 2016 but the reduced event rates for Fontana will be available later this week and are posted at www.outsmartingthedragon.com. Jennifer and I look forward to seeing everyone next year.

Moderators... Could you please create an OTD 2016 folder and move this thread to it? Thank you.

Major hit in the wallet today, might impact how (if) we go to the dragon, $2151.80 in repairs to Rover.

Rover stalled at a stop light wouldn't start and showed the 3 bars of death 8:30 Wednesday night. I had to push him into a diner's parking lot. Disconnecting the battery didn't help and had to get a tow only 1.5 miles from the dealer, thanks to AAA that was free. At first the dealership thought it was the shift motor but it turned out to be the shift module. The tech also found a bad front right strut assembly, 3 compressed motor mounts and 2 worn rear tires. Lots of other small parts involved as well . Originally the total was $2474.58 but they took some offf or customer loyalty.

More bad news came in the form of my wife's hip replacement surgery scheduled for Feb 8. She went in for her final checkoff before the surgery and she's in affibrillation so she need's a cardiologist's approval before the surgery something we don't see happening any time soon. Last time this happened they had to stop and restart her heart to clear it. Her surgeon, we're retired military, is an Air Force doctor, is due to be transferred soon so we might need to find her a new surgeon as well. So, we might not make the 'Dragon for this reason as well.

I live in South Central KY and have run the Deal's Gap Dragon many times.....(some on motorcycles...but most of them in my 1959 Mini!)

I'm SO coming to this with my new-to-me 2008 Smart Pure....

..I may even bring the Mini!
