21st Century rankings and other things
Here's an update on the 21st Century rankings. By the
way, we're using Wal-Mart's definition of the 21st
Century which started in the year 2000. The first
column shows the number of tracks each trackchaser has
earned starting 1/1/2000 (accurate to within a track
or two). The third column shows the post 21st century
ranking and the final column shows the pre 21st
century ranking. You can definitely see who's moving
up and who's falling back. Ed Esser gets the most
passing points with a 14 position gain from 17 to 3.

Gordy - Will you consider making a trackchasing food
guide? You could list your personal favorites as well
as full explanations of regional dishes available at
Guy - Congrats on getting into a new house. Moving
can be a big project.
Will - Your cost per track by going to Guatemala or
where ever is going to exceed my cost per track.
Where do you get all the money? The website continues
to be very valuable.
P.J. - If anyone passes you I predict it will be Ed.
Allan - Thank you for another good looking directory.
I'm trying to digest it now. I plan to get to my
800th track on August 29, 2005.
Ed - I don't remember being at IRP with you for a
non-countable event. Your website is excellent.
All - Thanks to everyone on the good wishes for my
700th track. It looks like a few people will be
reaching a new century achievement this season.
Keep those cards and letters coming in support of
counting go-karts. I know many of you would like to
"come out of the closet" regarding your positive
feelings about counting all the karts. It's too bad
some are fearful of Tony Soprano coming down on them.
Do you Yahoo!?
Yahoo! Movies - Buy advance tickets for 'Shrek 2'
I could write a long list of things I don't spend money on so that I can
afford to keep my annual new country streak going, but I think you already
know how skewed my priorities are in relation to what they probably should
be. As an avid financial planner you will be relieved to learn that I
haven't touched my 401(k) to support my TrackChasing goals.
