I'm a first timer!

I'll be there Saturday morning, probably ride home at night.

What time does everyone start heading home Sunday? I might sneak back up Sunday morning.

I won't be able to make it over today due to last meeting issues cropping up. I'll look to the east from home and try to pick out the glow of bon-fire from the west coast.

I’m not a very social person but everyone was so friendly and welcoming I couldn’t help but get drawn into every conversation. I had planned on taking a ton of photos and videos but ended up just relaxing and enjoying time spent with good people. Very glad I could make it this year.

I have more photos, but this image resize app is a pain in the butt.

Those pics turned out good...... even if you don’t have one of my run at the blindfold course :lol:

We too had a good time. I think next year we may have to do it as an overnight trip :cheers:

On a side note, how the heck did I miss a full vintage dive suit. I love that stuff!

I just grabbed a few off the SD card and bashed them through the phone's editing app. I got at least one of every blindfold run and alllllmost every bike that was there Saturday. If I have time I'll get them processed tonight.

I still haven't even looked at any of the drone footage. Most likely it's an embarrassment. I only took it up twice before HUG.

I had a really cool video, flying over the bikes all lined up, over the crowd during the prize drawings, and off over the fire pit.

I thought I was recording. Nope, not a chance. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I had to head out early Sunday morning to get back to the family. Next year they'll be coming with!

Lol. No worries. It was a good time. Good to meet everyone.

I’m just glad I didn’t hit any trees during the blindfold part. That is some Sketchy feeling stuff :foilhead:
