    Lyndon,

    Do you have an internet connection in your ride or what? How did you get these posted so quick?

    Thanks to you and all involved in setting up one of the best drives i've been on yet!

    See you guys soon on another drive!

    What a great *drive* with great people as always! Special thanks to Lyndon and Jeff for organizing, as much as I enjoy putting these together it's nice to just relax and drive in the pack too. Everyone did a fantastic job of staying together, this was one of the best coordinated runs I have been on!

    Nick, your Qp sounds absolutely *gorgeous* even if it is slightly faster than me :)

    Apologies to the red 355 (SillyPuppy) Nick and I grazed you a bit on that pass, thanks for making room!

    A few of us continued and made it to the winery, just in time for closing. It's just as well, the place was packed for the barrel tasting weekend! Jeff, we're invited back PM me for details.

    Best!
    Ben.

    Thanks, everyone, for welcoming Corrie and myself to your Bay Area family so openly! I had a wonderful time driving, and my wife/copilot/navigator enjoyed it more than virtually any other drive we've done. We'd love to join you again, and of course welcome you all to come up to Sacramento and join us on exploring some of the roads we have up here. My PM box is open to you all!

    And thank you for embarrassing me thoroughly in the restaurant with a fantastic rendition of "Happy Birthday". Jeff, you're an absolute riot. Gary and Ashley, it was fantastic meeting you. Congrats on the new 612, Frank - enjoy it to its fullest! And Alfonso, you can check out my lines anytime. ;)

    Of course, thank to Ray for asking us to come along - we couldn't be happier we did, and to Lyndon, you did a fantastic job putting all this together and keeping anyone from getting lost.

    Goodnight, everyone, and thanks again! The Bay Area Lambo/Ferrari/Porsche/etc.etc. family are a truly special group of people.

    Thanks for setting this up, was a great blast, and I'm pretty impressed with how well the 612 can hold its own.

    It was great to see everyone again. That pass through the tunnel on the way out of SF was INSANE. I can't wait to see and hear the video. Lyndon and Jeff, thanks again for organizing another terrific drive. Alfonso, you have to add a GT3 to your stable :)

    Cheers,

    Richard

    Thanks guys for letting me join in the drive. That's probably the hardest workout the QP has gone through since I bought it. Alfonso your exhaust sounded incredible. It was pure joy driving behind you during those winding roads.

    drivhrd: my buddy champ took a short vid of the tunnel and I think it shows your pcar blasting through. The audio is kinda crappy and it's a little short but here it is.

    D and K - sorry to miss you. We were crossed up on emails. Hope to catch you next time.


    Actually credits go to Ben for that first pic (and the cool shot of us winding down toward Stinson) and yes you guys did "pose" for Carolyn in the second.


    We missed you Alex. Here's my weak attempt at one of your motion shots:

    Thanks to Eric and everyone on the ride yesterday. I had a great time, enjoyed meeting everyone and slept very well last night. I need some practice keeping the camera still, but I managed to get a nice one of Lyndon & Carolyn!

    AHH, but Frank is leaning on the QP instead of the new 612!
