Daniel & Amy,
We at Team Thicko have also enjoyed the presence of Les at various race events.
We originally thought he had driven out, (both from Nebraska and Michigan) to
offer moral support, an occasional bit of technical
advice. Not so. We have now determined that Les can consume 3 times his body
weight at one sitting for dinner. At IRP, we had to slaughter 3 additional
herds in order to satisfy "the eating machine".
The technical advice is good... but like everything... has it's price.
Team Thicko Flounder
