Here's the catch: the dinner is 70 miles away for my son, Brian, and I, and about a 40 mile drive from another direction for my son, Andrew. It is now about 9am, the dinner starts at 6pm tonight, and it is snowing like crazy! We are predicted to get up to 7 inches of the white stuff before it ends later this afternoon.
Well, we have been really looking forward to this for about a month now. Should a little ..... Ummm .... inclement weather disrupt our plans? Not bloody likely! Here's why.
Bill Caswell became something of an Internet sensation with the publication of this article, recounting his adventures at the 'Mexico round of the World Rally Championship in a 1991 BMW 318i that he found on Craigslist." The article was written by Sam Smith.
That's right, Bill and Sam are the same two guys that will be the guest speakers tonight! Wait, there's more:
Caswell is currently preparing an ix to run at Sno-Drift 2012. The video above shows him driving a 1991 318i at the Rally America Sno-Drift 2010.

So... what is a little snow when it comes to having the opportunity to meet these two guys up close and personal!!!
Damn the torpedoes! :)
Stay tuned! I will try to do some updates to our snow adventure later today and tonight!
