Work on the reflection of the light on the pavement. Also, the grey above the light looks like a poof of smoke

Nah. A 335 travels so fast that it creates a rift in the space-time continuum behind it!

Here's a pic from C2C2 taken at about the 4000 foot level, one of my favorites. That's M-rated in the lead M3 making sure the mascot made it to the summit safe and reasonably sound.

Three others who are trying to tie up some loose ends and hope to make it. Expect at least one to make it for sure.

And we have a special guest who will be flying in just for the event. I'll let that person make the announcement.

If you really want to know what it's all about read any of the threads from the CtoC, CtoC2 or CtoC3. Most everyone from the first trip will be on this one too, that says a lot.

I took down the Goat Crossing sign but I am not convinced it was a good idea.

Okay, here is the announcement:

The CFO informed me that we had a little more room in the travel budget and asked where I thought it should be allocated.
The answer, at least for me was a no - brainer: C2C4!

Soooo....

As much as I would love for my E93 to actually make the trip, (and BTW: that was on the table), this go round, the E93's participation is going to be a "front end" and "back end" road trip. We are officially naming this the "Austin to Boston" Trip. We will be driving the E93 300 miles on the front end/backend to join up with the C2C4 event. Not exactly a road trip, but in the greater scheme of things, it will have to do.

We're sure you'll rent something nice for the weekend.

Wait. On second thought, this means we'll all have to spend twice as much time cleaning our cars for the event!

He's hiding from PETA. They are after him for taking down the Goat Crossing signs on the MWAR.
