Toobing!

So, I’m leaving on Thursday morning, heading back home to Texas for a week or so. I got tired of the 65 degree weather here in San Francisco and needed to experience the scorching 100 degree Texas heat once more this summer – yeah right. Regardless, should be a fun week ahead. Labor Day weekend will be filled with toobing on the Comal river. The week after I will be heading to Houston to meet up with some friends and work a little bit and then back to San Antonio to catch a flight early Saturday morning. Gotta love the Lone Star State…

What’s up top?

Some of you may be wondering [what|when|where|why] the header image came from, so here’s the answer. I actually took that picture at this year’s United States Formula 1 Grand Prix in Indianapolis, Indiana. The picture is of Robert Kubica’s BMW F1 car as it brakes at the end of the Hulman straight just before turn 8. The glowing red you see is actually the carbon brake disc, which gets so hot under braking, it actually glows. Pretty cool stuff!
