Please tell me someone else was taking all those videos while you were driving right? If not, you've got some impressive juggling skills my friend.

Um how much more nerdy can it get ...thats kinda the point ....look at us we dont have 500hp hot rods dadddy and mommy bought us....we have nerdy class just like the german nerds that built these things....you think they had models to take out on there days off? No they had there cars to play with...LOL

And yes i taped it all and while driving ..hence the crappy movment.

Next time i am for sure gonna get the convoy from behind me.


Oh on another not im gonna run wvo from now on.....just gonna add a 3 dollar bottle of diesel kleen cetene bost with anit gel in it...treats 100gallons so 20 or so gallons of veggie should be fine with it in it. 3.49 here in sac is just to rich for me.

Nice video. For the next meet I would really like to get some good action photos, so like from the side of the road as the convoy goes by as well as some video like that. Pretty impressive overall for driving and filming at the same time. I'm glad you could finally post it.

The handycam layout of your camera really helped, mine was the typical camera setup and doesn't have good grip so I couldn't really maneuver mine so I decided not to risk it. If I had a friend, maybe that'd help especially with the fish-eye lens getting a whole new perspective on the trip. That, and another set of memory cards.

Hey Garrett, I just looked at the vid again and while you were on your way to the meeting place (first part of the vid) going 90ish, the temp was at 100! Is your thermostat good? I hope it is now. My car never saw 100, mabe 90 on uphill climbs. 85 mostly.

But looked as though you guys had a good time....and that's the main thing

I don't think we brought enough memory cards for the interiors, engine and other stuff. Maybe next time. I did take images of the engines, though. But they were not running...

Maybe you could allocate a job to everyone who brings a camcorder.

one for engine and interior
one for road trip
one for interviews etc

Proves (again) that you don't have to drive the latest (and worsest?!) to have fun in a Merc.. Thanks for putting up the vid - I enjoyed the whole trip.
Cheers,
Dennis
