      Hey Everybody!

      A bunch of us were talking a few nights ago on facebook and we got fired up to do a Bear Mountain .:R GTG

      When: Sunday September 27th, 2015

      Time: Show up at the lot starting at 8:30-9:30am to hang out and conversate. Rekindle old friendships. We are leaving at 9:45am EST according to the atomic clock in Colorado for the “Newburgring”.

      Where: The main point of congregation will be at the commuter lot in the Palisades mall. Use the address below which is for BJ’s wholesale and is very close to the turn off for the commuter lot.
      Here is a map of the mall and meet spot:
      BJs is at:
      1050 Palisades Center Dr West Nyack NY 10994


      Who: So heres the deal. Im going to post this in all the .:R model forums. We are expecting your car to be a well sorted .:R model, or modified to brake as well or better than an .:R model. If that isnt your ride than by all means, come hang out in the lot but don’t come to the mountain. If you feel the need to take the ride, please take your own route or get in the back of the pack. Not being elitist, just trying to keep us all safe, maximize funnage and keep us all as close as possible performance wise. Usually the front of the pack is more spirited than the back of the pack.

      Here are some pics from back in the day:

      the parking lot is about 30-45 minutes from the Bear Mountain Area. We stop a few times for photo ops. I plan to do a dry run on Saturday around 2pm or so. Never really timed it but its a few hours from meet point to finish. Some of us go get lunch at the end of it. Ill have more details later on but i figure ends at the woodbury commons area.

      It was one hell of a drive, but luckily the worst part was trying to get cash for the tolls back home. Would definitely do that again, as well as upload the pictures I took. Link to follow soon

      This is pretty late to post, but now that its winter I have some more time to edit R32 videos.I had a copyright issue on one of the bear mountain vids for music but part 1 and 2 are back up on my youtube page now if anyone wants to check them out.I just went to another meet and got some footage from that if anyone likes those type of videos or mkv R32 stuff.
