I'm surprised that this video hasn't been posted yet;
That is a pretty nice video, though it really doesn't o over the intricacies of driving the road.

IMHO something like 60-70% of the fun comes from hanging around the fire pits at night, which you can't do if you're at your own secluded house.
That number seems skewed because this is my fourth year going and have never attended the fires and still had a blast.

No inappropriate touching! However Mr. Spiritus typically has other ideas. :p
Inappropriate touching is OK as long as it's only chairs and "touching" means "throwing in fire". :laugh:

(naw, but seriously, don't throw chairs in the fire pit)
(it's a lot harder to do now that they upgraded to super heavy adirondack chairs)
(pretty sure the casualty of trial by fire was a shiatty patio chair that one year)

The throwing of chairs in the fire pit reminded me of a fun-filled night before most of you Wookies were born. That Weekend was the last US Grand Prix in Watkins Glen NY, October 10-12, 1975. We celebrated the night as someone drove a school bus camper into the "Pit" and set on fire to light the festivities. :laugh:

NOTE: I am not suggesting this is an appropriate form of celebration by passionate Wookies or VWFanatics, so no car sacrifices, please! :facepalm:

Well, I suppose you could, but then you can't partake in any of the interesting libations, and you have to drive yourself back to that house in the middle of the night and risk slamming into a goddamn deer.
Meh. I enjoy my quiet time haha.

blame the web guy

nothing is scheduled Thursday, there never is. get in town and relax, eat some grub.. get some gas.. make new friends.. drive. no phones or work. you will enjoy it. Third time down you should have figured this out by now ;) I cant locate where you suggest anything is listed on the 18th. so pm me a screenshot or something so I can correct it.

Thanks




:heart:

I copy/pasta'd the cruise page from last year. You get the idea and know when to be there. Fixed it for you all though. :beer:

All good. i guess i was hoping for an extra day because this got so huge... My days off on the job i work let me come a day early anyways... it'll mean extra not so busy dragon runs..

in (just under) 2 weeks the weather will change... lets just hope thats its warm so the rain dries up like it did last year... damp in the morning and fun in the afternoon....

let me know if you need any help/setup for the safety meeting/RBQ and whatnot. and thanks for putting on a fantastic event... I'm sure the first time you put it on you never thought it would get 20 times as big...

Super stoked.. cant believe its so close...time flies
