Default BFest 2004 Play By Play

Let the fun begin

I got to the hotel around 3:30 this afternoon, and got to wait for Allmachtige :P Sometime in the process, Solid arrived in his silver 2000 SSEi...beautiful car After Allmachtige arrived, we went to Rock Cut State Park to meet Smellbird, JLAudioEclipse and his friend, and take some pics and meet people. From there we went to Cheddar'*, where my meal got lost Ah well, free grub, if late :P

We did a lot of driving around, got split up several times. I'm impressed by the Mare'* ability to ALMOST keep up, but the other guys kept leavin me in the dust Not to mention that I can WATCH the gas guage go down when I open up those back 2 barrels of the carburetor Allmachtige had the loudest WHIIIIINEEEE and Solid had the loudest exhaust.

Shortly after we got back to the hotel, Rogue showed up in the 8-Ball I think we drooled on it...sorry, Rogue! Mini-Rogue is ADORABLE, and that'* sayin a lot for someone who doesn't really like kids

All in all, a fun day. Tomorrow: Volo Car Museum

Stuck here at work as well filling in for my vacationing boss. Sucks being second in command sometimes.

Be sure to take plenty of pics!! At least I can pretend I was there during a pictorial?? :P

They're taking plenty of pics, don't worry...already have one of an unsuspecting SisORogue :P please don't shoot me, sisorogue!!!

In attendance today:
*Allmachtige
*BonnieBrougham
*Blitzkreig2003
*Smellbird
*Fuddyduddy121
*Rogue, SisORogue, and family
*Solid

And still more comin I'm doing a mini convoy with Kennginn tomorrow

The event today was a trip to the Volo Car Museum. It'* become home to several famous cars, including the Bluesmobile (though it looks AWFULLY funny all clean and polished :P ), the Batmobile, the BatBoat...that'* right, there'* a batboat...the Mystery Machine, the GTO from XXX, K.I.T.T., and....ELEANOR.

Few pics ganked from their site...



mmmm...eleanor and K.I.T.T...........

Lots of other nice cars too, the mass quantities of GTOs and several Superbees stick out the most in my mind. Most of them are for sale, too

Went to Culvers, then headed back to the hotel, where I took off, since i'm not exactly 100%.

Tomorrow: picnic
