FL BLLTT makes 20!
BLLTT left N FL home stable Sunday week ago. Hoosierblackbullitt met BLLTT in lower IN. Both cantered to Gingerman, DRIVING 2 days Mohawk Track Experince, along with 2 other Bullitts on Day 1. GRAND FUN!
Was then going to head home stable. Paul tempted BLLTT Driver with further experiences at Woodward Dream Cruise and Mustang Memories. She Who Must Be Obeyed granted blessing. Started tracking socks, underwear and jean's day worn count... Free T-shirts filled in!
At Mustang Alley, was a member of Paul's posse, as he worked the Big Folks for support of next year's Mohawk Track Experience. Learned secrets of the Mustang's future, I am sworn to secrecy... but cheap!
At Mustang Memories, got to SELL Mohawk Track Experience track crack for next year. In my element! As Hollowpoint affirms, I am a very bad man, for all the track addictions I have caused.
Finally, Sunday, had to head south. The moveable feast was over. Overnighted Monday in Knoxville TN and had dinner with a fellow track addict who I met at Sebring 5 years ago, not quite a Hoondogger yet. But I am working on that...I am a bad man.
Then stopped Tuesday at Chuck and Renee's for a visit. Have to get my Renee time when passing thru Byron GA. Chuck reminded me about the Somerset event, with the hero Bullitt, Alex's documentary and Bullitt movie. The FL Bullitthead gathering this upcoming weekend had been cancelled. Hmmm...
Called the Very Significant Other, who needs a Bullitthead roadtrip! YES!
Grabbed a hotel room at the Comfort Inn. (If you want to see the true definition of extortion, check the rate of the Somerset Marriott...)
1 day home to happen. Laundry. Flip BLLTT from a DRIVEN 2550 mile very dirty track & road tripper back to a clean cruiser. But LT Frank Bullitt drove a dirty...
Bullitthead road trip! #20 at Somerset! Just bringing it!

Here is the logistical information for the many events of this coming weekend from John Wertele, who helped organize this -
"Ok folks here are the details for the BULLITT weekend at Somernitescruise! First let me say there are MANY events planned for the whole weekend starting on Thursday and going through Sunday......you can participate in any of them that you wish but here are the details for the BULLITT guys and gals.......
Starting with Friday evening we will meet at GUTHRIE'S grill around 6:15-6:30pm for dinner and a little social/meet and greet time. It is located at 6075 S. HWY 27 about 5 miles from the courtyard Marriott host hotel on US 27...Starting at 5pm there will be a block party at the Somerset Mall located at 4150 US 27 for those who wish to cruise a little before dinner. ( They will also be selling the special BULLITT shirts there for those who want to make sure they get one)....After dinner they will have a free showing of the movie BULLITT on the the town square (at 8pm) in the center of town, so if you plan on doing that, please bring your chairs and enjoy the show! There will be other things as well on Friday night so please go to Somernitescruise.com and check out all the things to do if you're not interested in seeing the movie.
FOR SATURDAY MORNING.......the meeting spot for staging and the drive into town will be the MEECE MIDDLE SCHOOL parking lot located at 210 BARNETT STREET off US 80 (the Hal Rogers Pkwy) at 9:45-10:00am. The school is also located about 5 miles from the Marriott host hotel only in the opposite direction of our dinner spot....We will leave for town at 10:30am so they can get us parked before all the other cars are allowed into the cruise. After the town cruise in on Saturday we will have a SPECIAL treat thanks to my friend ANTHONY ALONSO who has reserved a meeting room at the courtyard Marriott host hotel for a screening of the documentary BULLITT movie "Let's be Frank". As an added bonus ...Anthony has also arranged for the movies maker ALEX OAS to be present as well. The Marriott is located at 2254 S HWY 27 and FORD DR.
AGAIN , there are MANY things to do and see this weekend and you are free to do anything you wish. I look forward to meeting each of you that can make the show and again I REALLY appreciate ALL the help I have had from Anthony S. Alonso who without his help and knowledge and contacts our BULLITT weekend wouldn't be as wonderful as it is going to be! P.S. Pretty much everything we are doing is located on or right off US 27 which is the main road through Somerset and all will be easy to find. Hope everyone can make it! If there is anything I have left out, please don't hesitate to reach out to me and I will do my best to get you the info you might need!"

ATTENTION: Bullitt Owners Attending Somernites Cruise on Saturday, Aug 24, 2019
You will have the opportunity to see a Bullitt owner documentary that has premiered in MN last month and in TX the week before Somernites. It's from Alex Oas, and it's called "Let's Be Frank".
I am thrilled that Alex will be able to join us for a "movie night" on Saturday evening, Aug 24, at the Mariott Courtyard Hotel in Somerset, KY.
Post up here so here can get a count of attendees for this excellent event. More details soon.
Thank you, Alex, for making your way to KY for this!!
