Lol Kaz!

Actually this whole thing was absolutely unorganized. As I said, I had never done anything like this before. I *need* to get a camera mount if I plan on doing this again (you should have heard my friends *****ing after taping 85 minutes straight). It would be cool to have 2 or 3 different cars or angles. I also would have done drivebys and stuff like that.

Basically, all I said was, "tape this so we can edit it later on the comp," even though I doubted I would actually go out and buy the RCA -> USB connector and learn how to use all the software and stuff, but I gave in and did it :P But I didn't give any directions, we just help the camera up against the windshield :P

I was more worried that the car behind me (Inaux) might plow into me, really, more than whether I'd plow into Vince ahead of me or not. There were several occasions when we'd come around a blind turn and see the other cars stopped right in front of us for whatever reason.

Like Vince mentioned in another thread, we all need to have FRS radios the next time we try something like this.

No seriously, it would be blind corner then WAM stop sign, doesn't matter how close your following, there were about 3 or 4 times when everyone just STOMPED on there brakes, I have some clips of the other ones. The videos don't really make out how hard we had to stop.

Not sure who it was with the titan. silver car w/ UUC sways (I spoke with him at that biker place we stopped) but that guy was fuggen GOOD. Who was there at the end, it was me, Kaz, Vince.. who was the fourth?

Kaz...went ape **** in the station wagon :P My friends and I were all surprised how he was ripping things up in it
