Yeah buddy! I think there was talk of another larger group tubing down the river. That was a good time.

Do me a favor.From now on don't care what other people think about your car. Do what YOU want to your car. Who gives a damn what other people think about it.

Gonna miss this one because I'll be visiting PDX and SEATAC that week with my family. Awesome cabin will be a little less awesome this year as a result. Also, no bad MAP sensors or other issues on my part, since I don't have a teg to being right now anyway. Hoping for a triumphant return in a DC/DB chassis in 2018.

After making 10 consecutive TI Dragon Runs, sadly I will miss out this year. Car is running great. I have that week off of work. But I will be on vacation with family at another event during that time.

Looking forward to 2018 . . .

While surfing Team-Integra.net I listen to Pandora.com

Won't be attending, but since i've been there you guys will definitely want to check out Ole Smokey Moonshine's place. Lots of flavors, you can try every flavor if you want, lots of merch you can buy, and just a really cool building. it's done up really nice. Go there, you won't be disappointed!

I would love to make it out at least once. Finally getting ahead in life and can afford the time off and trip out. However, it will have to be next year. Car currently looks like poo. Paint fading clearcoat coming off. But she runs great. I definitely will make an effort to go in 2018. you kids have fun! I will live vicariously through your pictures

If I do make it this year it won't be in the R. Most likely, unless I blow it up before then.... I'll be in the STi this year.
I'll be by myself and probably drive back that night. It's only a few hours from me and I've been hitting it a lot since I got this car.

If you read this: it doesn't matter what car is there, what shape it's in or whatever... this meet is past that point.

As someone wisely said (I'm not sure who said it, but it's on an older Dragon Run recap thread): "TI: come for the cars, stay for the friends"

Exactly why I'm hoping to be there. Although I'll have to linger near a gas station.
Vipers get better gas mileage than I do.
