That was all the pics

Well, there they are FINALLY!!

Don't you just love digital photography!

EMSDAD: You did pretty good. I was really impressed at how quickly you were able to zip past me. I thought to myself: "Hey my car could probably do that!" And that was a pretty thrilling thought! :D I wasn't *pushing* it real hard because I think I was only at about 1500 miles at the time of the run. AND, I've never had a car that can be pushed so hard and behave so well. I definitely need more fast road time and practice.

The ride was a blast, those of you that missed it really missed out. We definitely need to do this again. Maybe next time something a little closer to Seattle? A week from Saturday, I'm going over to Leavenworth for Oktoberfest with my wife. I'm going to try to check out a road I took one night with my motorcycle that seemed (at the time) really killer. If it's as good as I remember maybe we can do that. It was over ten years ago, so I'm not sure how accurate my memory is... (You young guys, just say NO to aging!)

Talk to you all later,
-Dennis

Well, Zoom,

I was pretty well behaved (read: tame), but Emsdad admitted he was WAY up close to redline practically the whole run!

Yeah, color variation is good. It would have added a little pizzaz when we ALL pulled into one of the stops and EVERYONE in the parking lot was looking at us! Oh, except for IronMedic and his automatic which came pulling in a few minutes later!

Yeah, you should come to the next one. Was definitely a lot of fun and some pretty cool people. And you know... there were none of those awkward silences you sometimes find at gatherings. We were all talking about:
"Oh, you have___, what do you think of it?"
"Where did you get that done?"
"What else are you looking into getting?"
And to Nemesis8: "What DON'T you have?"

Hey I just realized that I am unique! The fact that I don't have any mods to my car makes me unique right?


I know, I know....it's a stretch, but it's worth a shot! :D

Wow, great pictures. Looks you guys had a great day for the drive. Sorry I missed it (family obligations, i.e, kid's soccer). Looks like you really needed another Ti Gray to add to the mix next time (bone stock too!).

The effect you guys had on the mountain is easiliy explained. The hamonic resonance of all those Renesis engines at 9000 RPMs generated a sympathetic vibration in the earth's mantle leading to a tectonic shift in the San Juan subduction zone. This resulted in a fissure in the magma cap thus triggering the current seismic environment. Either that or someone had their sub turned up way too loud. :D :D

That's exactly what I said! (I wish I sounded that smart ) LOL.

It's easy to understand why there are so many Titaniums out there though....it's the best color of course . (No one mention that my first 8 was winning blue ok?)

So when is the next mountain run? Mt. Ranier anyone?

No way was that planned but it was a major adrenalin rush. When we came around the corner and I saw the other lane I thought "I'll use the passing lane." I had so much speed built up that when I moved over and saw that it was a long right turn lane I thought it safer to just go on around and not slam on the brakes and try and tuck back in. My butt cheeks had such a grip on the seat that I no longer see the need for racing seats! :D Not exactly the smartest move I have done.

Damn, I didn't think these cars where that powerful! I'm rethinking the Mt. Ranier run. I live in Puyallup, and I'd hate to blow the top off of that one. I'm in South Hill so I may be spared any mudslides or lava flow, but I have a feeling the property value may fall!

Maybe we shouldn't wake anymore mountains up .

Or rather how much MORE fun it is to have my time finished, and look back on it with fond memories! :p
