I was having some problems getting Track Addict working at past few events at Salinas airport. I’d configure the app for the day of the event. Then I’d get the starting and finish points via GPS.

I’d go check my video after a run to see where I was making errors and I’d only have recorded about 30 seconds of the run (approximately the first half). I finally figured out what was happening and the remedy.

It’s kinda like when I was in high school and playing water polo. You’d be looking over at the football players sweating away and wonder, why?

When I see the golfers in this shot, I wonder if they’d like to come for a ride. For me, it’s just more fun.

It almost felt like spring. We had some 80 degree days and we’re back to rain and high 40’s this afternoon.

I'm prepping the greenhouse for the season. We did well with overwintering a few hot peppers. Green onions and leeks are being harvested; tarragon, oregano, thyme are all putting out new growth. Fall saffron is dormant. Potatoes have just broken the ground.

Salinas Airport Spring Day

Back in June 2023, at LPR's Autocross #5 at Salinas Airport an interesting thing happened.

As I went into full brake at the finish of my first run, the drivers side headlight shot out of the car. I'm sure it gave the timing station quite a start as it bounced across the tarmac.

Well, its the end of the season for me. My last days to participate were the 10/28-29/23 dates at the Salinas Airport. Car felt good and both days I felt like I was improving my line and dropping my times throughout both days. 

The location is smallish but it works. Below are a collection of photos taken by Gorilla Tornado, Craig Boyle and myself.

I was getting my gear ready for our next AutoX and was having some problems with connections between the Kiwi ODBII Bluetooth, GoPro 7 Bluetooth/Wifi and TrackAddict Pro on my iPhone 7.

I started by resetting the wifi connectivity on the GoPro 7 (Preferences > Connections > Reset). The result was that the GoPro then creates a camera name and SSID/password credential. Because I had done this a few times, I had multiple entries for the SSID and Bluetooth connections on my iPhone. I deleted all these to get a clean slate.

I'm not sure that I want to be the poster guy for cone killing in AutoX. That's me with a cone under my wheel at Marina back in 2017.

I was very impressed with this class the wealth of great driving instructors in our region.

Worked with Shelly Monfort and Mary Pozzi
