Per an earlier post I already bought a new pizza stone, but decided to try to get my Emile Henry pizza stone replaced under warranty. It worked - they sent me a new one. Still like the other new one better, but this is good for heating up homemade frozen pizza and as an all-around backup.

Nice!! I did the two day school years ago, a great time! One tip, take a dramamine the morning of. I got that tip from a fellow forum member before going and when I took it, other drivers laughed it off. At lunch the first day I had five people asking for a dramamine.

And if you have any spare time while in the area, I'm happy to provide suggestions. Assume your staying at the Marriott that BMW has used for years.

If you have track/auto cross experience, you likely won’t benefit from the Dramamine, but most folks haven’t experienced higher-g cornering, and so they start feeling queezy after a few minutes on track.

Same thing happened at my M-school. About 1/2 of the class lost driving time when they had to stop (take a break in the middle of a session) to settle their stomach. One even pulled out at lunch of the first day.

I never would have thought to take Dramamine. I am either staying there, or I can get a family rate at another chain.. tbd. Thanks for the tips.

I did a day at Pocono in 3/4 scale Indy car trainers. But we topped out at like 85-90mph, so even though the low driving position, open wheels and cockpit were a thrill ride, we didn't get enough speed to start pulling any serious Gs.

The track at the Performance Center has a number of tight corners, many involving changing elevation and that's what seemed to bother folks the most. You may not need it but it's cheap insurance so that your experience is not affected.

Unboxed my patio umbrella I bought on sale last November. California umbrellas are really well made.

Well, I didn't buy it per se, but I was the enabler.
The wife ordered a custom seatbelt bag from Simply Seatbelts in M series colors. Looks pretty cool. I think she'll be ordering another to match her other car.

Cost was very reasonable under $200 and completely custom. Handmade in the US.

New dresser from Pottery Barn for our condo in Asheville to replace the “antique” that made everything smell like smoked ham once we got it home.
