WHEW!! What can I say? It was GREAT! the weather co-operated perfectly.Met some new folks, saw some old friends! What more can one ask for??? We made it back safely. Hope everyone else did too!

I have someones radio. If you are missing one, let me know, we'll see how to get it back to you.

I also left a bag at the hotel:( :( has my galsses in there. I already called and I have to call tomorrow to see if it is there (DUH where else would it be). They said IF it is there they will send it COD. (for the cost of the room they ought to just send it, it's only a little one, grrr)

All in all a GREAT trip! We are already planning for next years!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I posted a link to some pics earlier, and I also did a short video. If you have HighSpeed Internet its about a 5Mb download. I ran on ahead and caught a bunch of you on Deal's Gap, cruising past my chair!!

I was the guy with no membership to the club, tagging along in my red '03 ragtop. I didn't know where else to post the video link, so I chose your post. I enjoyed the club, and will be sending off an application to join, ASAP.

i DOWN LOADED THE PICS FROM GRUMPY BUT MY COMPUTER WOULD NOT LET ME OPEN IT BECAUSE IT DIDNT RECONIZE WHAT CREATED IT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THIS HAPPENS TO ME ALL THE TIME. HOW CAN I GET THIS BITHCH COMPUTER TO OPEN IT???:(

cowboy - the pics wouldn't open, or the video?? The video requires Real Player, which most 'puters have installed. I also have it in MPEG, which WindowsMedia can play, but the file is ALOT bigger (about 8Mb). If you want to try it, let me know and I'll upload it to my website, and post the link here as well.

Again, pics are here http://www.grumpynlovinit.com/images/dealsgapcobra/dealsgapcobra.html

and the poorly shot and edited RealPlayer video is here... :-)

Definitely had a blast! Thanks to Jeff and the others that set this thing up for us. This was my first SCMC event and was impressed with event and all the people I met. I'll be filling out a membership form and sending it in this week.

Vance, if you're reading this let me know how I can get in touch with you. Or if Vance is not reading this does anyone know how I can get in touch with him?

See ya'll at Jackson!

dang looks like you all had fun! we need a road like that out in CA! i am definately thinking about driving out there from CA next year. Any other west coast, or along the way members have it in mind. i think if i drive out with a friend and go straight, switching drivers we can make it in under 2 days. i think it would be worth it for sure! it would be cool if some members along the way would want to go, we could have the rally to get to the dragon run rally... haha.
