I hate you. I REALLY HATE YOU. but I love the whine (I still cringe at how much whine you get, I keep thinking the supercharger is going to explode)

The fully compiled video is 94mb, and over 6 minutes long. I don't feel like taking the bandwidth hit (much larger full screen and higher quality). Including a good vid through the redwoods where a Vibe slowed us down, so we pulled over and let him go, then went and 'caught' him.

The funny thing is that with the camera so well mounted, it doesn't give an indication of lateral G'* or speed very well. During most of that run, I had all 3 lumbar chambers in my seat fully deflated so my back was firmly sunk into the pocket so deep, I had to move the seat forward a couple inches. It really helps. I'm only 150 pounds, and even with the side bolsters (love handles) on the seat fully in, I still move a bit in the seat on road trips like that unless I deflate the lumbars.

Katie was all over the seat during the second half of the trip. I was just talking to Greyhare about it, and we have a thought to do another similar run, but mount my camera on the LEFT side of my headrest so that it can see the Gtech displaying lateral G'* during the run.
