      We might make this. I'll probably catch the group in Woodland since I live in Kelso. I've got my 20 year reunion tomorrow too at 6 in Castle Rock. I'll post here tonight to confirm so you guys can look out for us. What time do you guys plan on coming through woodland?
      Ben gone from Vortex for nearly ten years... I must be getting old, cause this style of putting Corvette wheels or what not and stretching tires is a style I do not understand.

      I'm coming from Longview and plan to be at the Safeway by 09:00 - Pretty sure they'll be coming through Woodland about 09:00 - 09:15 with a lunch stop at the top at Windy Ridge parking area.

      Mostly I was using my camera to shoot video and timelapses. Sorry I didn't get many photographs.

      You can see more on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/twelviz...7631027053458/

      And some other stuff on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/lentscreative

      Had a great time!

      The cruise was a lot of fun. I couldn't believe close to 50 cars showed up. The park rangers were very friendly and seemed glad to see us. The guy at the Pine Creek Info Station was walking around with a number counter, trying to count all the people. Thanks for the pics Adam!

      Was a great day. Was a really good thing we stopped at Pine Creek. That ranger station has been closed the last few years due to budget cuts. Hopefully we helped a little bit for their statistics to keep funding it's operation.

      Glad you didn't hurt your car other than cosmetic. Let me know if you want to fix that chin spoiler. We probably can get that done here in a few weeks if you're ready.

      We had a little of that last year when my E21 group went on a similar drive up to Saint Helens. Caught on camera @ 0:26



      I wouldn't be surprised if you were talking about this same spot.

      That's not the same spot. The spot he launched off of had spray paint around the dip. Joey went through it in the eurovan then I narrowly dodged it in Desiree's car and then he nailed it.

      It had been so long since I was on here I could not remember my user name or password. Pretty sure my new one is better... Thanks DJM for putting this together with such class and style. I can also thank you for my seriously bronzed left arm!

      It appears you are having a problem with the internet, not just this site.

      That link you're trying to give us is one for organizing your photos, not viewing them.
