thanks for keeping us up with your journey. the wifi at La Qunita in Ventura, CA is really slow so it took quite sometime to load all your photos. Maybe keep them thumbnail size so we can just click the ones we want to see? well, just an idea.

BTW, I just happened to be in CA showing some students around, my home for zillion of years. My avatar shows TX because I worked for NASA in Houston.

Hey Joe,
It was nice meeting you today and having you on our "live" broadcast. Great job. Hopefully your "peeps" in New York were able to see it on our website.

Awesome trip, and you guys rocked the TV segment!!! I'm so bummed that we won't be able to make the trip this year. :-(

At least I can enjoy it vicariously through threads like this.

Show was absolutely awesome, thanks to jon and everyone who worked on putting it together for organizing such an awesome event also big thanks to the //M Fest guys for the free shirts, thank you to dave for all the media coverage, and everyone else who him forgetting the day was really worth the trip.

After the show hung out with marvin and his brother, pavel k, brent, and pablo (last names escape me) got some sushi since you so cal guys seem to love it so such, the went out for the night was suhk an awesome time.

Amyways, keep following the threqd as we will keep updating it throughout the rest of the trip, 1 more night left in pasadina then onto 3 nights in vegas then the trek back home

Aloha Joe, it's James(thaichi808) from MFEST. It was a pleasure meeting you at the KTLA pre Bimmerfest shoot and at Bimmerfest. I hope you have a safe trip back and please send pics of you and your buddy wearing the shirts. Hopefully see you two back in Pasadena next year.

Aloha,
james
