Last time posting was back in October 2021. A lot has happened, and been pretty busy in work when the Omicron variant came out. I didn’t have time to update the blog. But here we go: In November, I went on Thanksgiving camping trip in the Ozarks.
Did a 10 day trip with some friends, and had a fair share of water crossings. Nothing too deep thankfully.
Then in December, the last race of my rookie season, I got my first 1st place trophy!!!
January 2022 was the NASA season opener!!! I didn’t place till race 3 and 4. I managed 2nd and 3rd place. Team Garcia in the blue Miata was super fast. This was Motorsport Ranch Houston and sadly the track isn’t that well maintained. Super bumpy track, that I ran into few issues. The first one, I almost lost my slave master cylinder due to a bolt backing itself out. Then in the last race of the weekend, my timing was off because of loose bolt getting into the timing belt. Thankfully the AE86 motor is non-interference. I still survived to race.
In February 2022, I went to vacation in the Philippines! This was my first time flying since covid, and the rules for traveling has changed. Mainly, you need a negative covid test, 2 days prior to flying, and must be fully vaccinated to avoid quarantine. Mask are required in the Philippines, even if you are outdoors. The trip back, was memorable, and wish I was still living in the Philippines. I flew business class the first time and attended 2 weddings that month. I will be back again next year to travel more.
In March 2022, I missed the NASA March race unfortunately. My flight back to the states was cutting it close to make the race. I did manage to attend my homies bachelor party. Booked a ticket to Vegas last minute and enjoyed my 36hr stay!
That same month, I went camping in Barnwell Mountain. March weather in Texas is too nice, and would be a shame if I didn’t camp.
Finally catching up to this month (April), I had my NASA race! I was able to get two 3rd place finishes and two 2nd place finishes.
Very busy year so far. But we are all caught in my life’s journey of cars! This year Im planning to make it NASA championships in Laguna Seca in September! I made in enough points to make it, but I have one more race before Laguna Seca. The cases of corona virus is going down, and should have some more time to update the blog. Thanks for reading!
