If you live in the northeast you know that we are getting closer and closer to simulator szn.

Carl (The Carl behind Carl's Place) chatted about the business, the Covid boom for his business, and what makes a good simulator room. A huge thanks to Carl for the time!  _____ Check out Carl's Place (www.carlofet.com) and use promo code "GetAGrip" at checkout for 10 ..read more

One of the most fun pods of the year is here with Joel Dahmen and Geno Bonnalie, who were gracious enough to have a little fun at their own expense.
