We are 5th in line as of Wednesday - There are so many more now - This is the parking lot that will be full soon!
Phoenix International Raceway (PIR)
Wow, we are here in our own home, what a fabulous feeling. We are a bit earlier than planned but as we know plans change and we just flow with it. We had planned to come out on this coming Saturday to get in line for the unreserved camping and came out for a look and see on Monday and that is when we stopped and talked with others already in line and were informed if we wait until Saturday we will not get the spot we had wanted, which you can see by the photos taken on Wednesday of the line. So change of plans and we are tailgating and are in the top five, actually 5th in line.
Let me explain this line, we are pulled over on the side of a road adjacent to the track waiting for the gate to open on Saturday when we can go to the staging area to wait until the gates open at 8am on Monday morning when we can then go to our campsite. As we sleep at night the cars and trucks wiz by at 55 and much higher and our rig shakes, rattles and rolls all night. Apparently there is a cement company just down the road that is open 24 hours a day and they are busy. Also, there seems to be many people who think it is funny at all hours of the night to as they pass by the line to honk their horns for the entire line. Once they let us into the staging area we will then be off the road and into the raceway area the noise level and activity of vehicles passing us so closely will end but for the next few days we are just trying to enjoy this all and as usual go with the flow.
