This "automobile play area" is 1 mile off the beaten trail from our house into town. With a car that can handle the twisties, it's one of the best roads to have a spirited drive. In this vid, I'm in a 4runner, no spirited drive this morning on the way to Home Depot.
The first part of the road from the turn off is a 1/2 mile straight away, sharp 90 deg 10 mph turn, then a 2 mile straight away. I've clipped it out of the video this time. Next time I drive the BMW into town, I'll add the 2 mile straight portion in real time speed. :cheesy:
The next part of the road is the area that is locally known as where they filmed the Rainier Beer commercial with the motorcycle back in the 80's.
This portion of the road is full of curved twisties, no ditches (should you make a mistake, only fence posts and cows will hurt you) and beautiful scenery. There are telephone polls that can be a threat though. It's rare to see another car on this road. Total road length is about 4 miles of pure heart pumping adrenaline fun in a spirited automobile.
FYI, the microphone on the car cam sucks, thus I dubbed in the music with iTune version.
