I just received an envelope from Brad (Willie_B) in the mail today.

To all who signed what was inside: my most profound thanks!

I am glad you all enjoyed the routes.  I wish I could have been there as well, but life said otherwise.

Michael, we missed you, and we really appreciated the ground work you did in setting everything up.  Thanks again!

Thank you again for all your effort that made a very fun event.

Has any of the rumored video been edited and posted anywhere for viewing?

Well, this is raw video from my car, not edited.  Roads start getting twisty around the 7:30 mark.  And you really can't see all the Minis together until the end. 

I think Dave will have better stuff to share.

On a sad note, that car crash that's been in the national news the past several days concerning the pickup that hit the church bus in Texas killing 13 people, happened near the town of Leakey, only about 2 miles south of the gas station we stopped at several times there.

My clips are only three minutes long, so I have to go thru each one and try to find the 'interesting" ones then stitch them together into something worth watching. I'll get there.....

One thing kinda fun, my Garmin includes the GPS coordinates and speed on the video, so I can see exactly where we were when that clip was filmed.

I'm trying to find the steep roller coaster part - anyone remember exactly which road and where that was?

South Ranch Road 335 going south from road 41 to Camp Wood.

Brad beat me to it.  Yes, it's 335 south from 41.

Excellent!    That trip was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed hanging out with everyone. Great photos- so cool to see us from the air.
