Trip was great, although it was a long short weekend! Buttonwillow wasn't too bad, got on the road around 4:50 Sat, and are you ready for this, I used cruise control all the way to Dodger Stadium!!! I could kept it on cruise the whole way down, but they had dense SF-like fog that set in around the stadium so I took it off, but there was no stopping, no slowing... even typing it I don't believe it!! Saw Candlelight it was awesome, you wouldn't think they could fit that many singers in that little area. I also saw them making the candy canes in DCA on Sat, were you able to get one last weekend and figure out why they're so popular? On a side note, someone mentioned in the DL 1/2 thread and I had to check it out b/c I didn't believe it, but did you see how much they're now charging for the race next year? I can't believe it!!! You'd think our medals are made out of gold or something.
