I make a motion that we retire the Chuck Norris jokes and replace them with Ryan Newman. That dude's as tough as nails. Thought his daughters would never see their daddy again, but from that to walking less than 48 hours later... WOW. I hadn't watched Nascar in years, but thought I'd give it another try on Monday. I must have missed some huge advances in safety over these last few years, kudos to Nascar's safety development team.
Did you ever make it to the Grand Canyon? I stopped there on my way out to California for a military trip. It is absolutely incredible. I would love to go and spend a little more time, but just the sheer immensity of it leaves you feeling even more insignificant than usual.
