    I don't tackle new things too well. Tomorrow I start a 3 day event for 50,000 people. Yes...50,000. I've done a couple thousand, but not like this. It's the National Robotics competition in the Thomas and Mack stadium at the university, which is a venue I've never done before. That freaks me out. I'm sure it will be televised somewhere on TV.

    Secondly, I'm going to drive today for the first time in a LONG time. They're picking me up to get the vehicle in a half hour. I know my way around Vegas so that's not a problem, just driving with the crazy nuts around here.

    Fingers crossed. I hope I call pull this off.

    Sounds like quite a challenge. I will have to look that up and see if we are getting it covered on any channel. I have 280 channels...must be on there someplace...lmao.

    Sending board magic to get you through, I suppose it would be too scary to picture 50,000 people in their underwear?

    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    I really don't think you need any strength! But I will send you all of mine!
    I really wish Vegas was bit closer. I would cruise on up and cheer you on.

    You really are one courageous woman! I don't think I could have ever done half of what you have done in your life so far.

    10 and 2, slow and steady wins the race.
    Or else just put it in "R" for race, BIG pedal on the right and go Momma go!!! Wave that Tall Man out the window as you are flying past all of those losers!!!

    You can do this. I have complete faith in you. :thumbsup:

  10. You can do it! Just remember the little engine that could ;) Driving in Vegas will come back to you too. If my 16 year old can do it, you can too!

    Good luck on the event!

    We have total faith in you. :D

    I'd be a little afraid to picture 50,000 people in their underswear or naked. :faint:

    So......since there will be that many.......and mostly focused on the robotics......odds are they won't be paying as much attention to you as the normal crowd. That might take the pressure off a bit.

    You can do it Abbey. Sending my warrior Mom supplies your way. I'm taking the day off today and don't need them.

    Sending lots of strength and my extra warrior armor to help you through this!

    sounds like a great opportunity and it could be a lot of fun! You will be AWESOME!

    Relax and concentrate on your driving when you go. You will be fine, I have total faith in you.

    Sending lots of postive thoughts for strength & success. Look at it this way, the people are the same whether 500, 5000 or 50000. And maybe just look at the first couple thousand in the front and it won't seem so large.

    Wow, I certainly hope you're an extrovert! You will need all your powers of persuasian, organization, and charm for this one. :)
    I'm sure the driving will be fine. I've driven in Vegas and it's not hard.
    Good luck, anyway. :)
