    What a fabulous day! Beautiful weather too! Larry and I continued down Hwy 9 after lunch then took a quick side trip up the Lake Cavenaugh loop. Yeeehaaawww!
    I got caught in a bit of rain in the last three miles of my drive. Big fat drops! Didn't bother to put the top on. Just drove faster!

    It would have been even more fun if MORE PEOPLE HADN'T CHICKENED OUT!
    BOCK BOCK!

    1. Larry's GT4 behind us
    2. Cherry 86 TR
    3. Old slow (Yellow) and Old Fast (White)
    4. 360, 308 and GT5

    Peter, At least you SHOWED UP! Albeit carless but just the same. No chicken there.

    I must say that if there was anyone that can get EVERY bit of performance out of a GT4 it would be Larry. He kept the rear view mirror of my 308 filled the entire day! Some pretty nice slides up on the Cavenaugh loop too. A little more than I am willing to do in the 'Old Yellow One'.

    Someday I hope you can run some of these back roads around here with us. In the past I have plotted a few pretty fun routes in the 240 inpreparation for club drives. I haven't had too many complaints yet!

    I don't mind sharing the road but these people were just plain dangerous. Four were stopped and standing IN THE ROAD, ON A CORNER, WITH GAURD RAILS AND NO SHOULDERS!

    WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING!

    Next time I will stop and say something. It was stupid and dangerous of them!

    I must say that particular road was VERY fun at 8:00 a.m. the previous Saturday while driving the 'research car'!

    Yeh, some of them obviously never heard of "single file line"... and instead they ride 4 bicycles wide. Real smart!!

    ALL of my pictures look like crap until I run them through my Photosuite III program. Crop, rotate, brighten, fix contrast and sharpen. If it was a film camera like my old 35 mm I would probably get 2 out of 36 good. Sometimes I just love modern technology. Other times I feel like blasting it with my Winchester Defender (Home Defense Apperatus).

    They are fabulous my friend, even though I do not make many of the events (something I'm working feverishly on this year) I always check in to see the artwork that follows the event. Your pics are something I look forward to seeing, keep up the good work my friend.
