    Glad you guys are having fun. Safe cruising on the way home. Watch the weather, it's finally getting cooler down here.

    Like one of the 12:00 Boys said: "It's an important sub-culture".

    Sounds like it's alive and well in Baltimore.

    I'm sure most of the country doesn't understand how this can basically be legal in a city. I didn't even think about warning newcomers to the fools "poppin woolie's in da screet".

    Ryan, not to worry, Kodachrome will soon be available to replace your Plus -X film (I noticed you switched from your normal Tri-X for the cloud detail). Just remember to pick up all your old flash bulbs and film wrappers.

    So wheelies on ATV's, on the public streets, is legal in Baltimore? Are unlicensed vehicles even allowed on the streets, or do they actually register and license them there?

    I was implying that hot rodding is an important sub-culture, using a quote from one of "da boyz", but I guess it was kind of an obscure reference.

    The way you describe the two Riv's rolling into the parking lot makes me
    think of Christine, rolling back into Darnell's
    Great read!

    We really are happy to hear that everyone had such a great time. I'm glad you brought up the parking garage, because I had forgotten about that. Living here in town I opted for my own bed at the end of each day over a hotel, but the rest of the TRJ crew was at the Waterfront Marriott. I met Steve back there around midnight Thursday night to take care of some last minute details for Friday. When I pulled in, it was like being in a museum. The garage was full of amazing cars and while there were plenty of people milling around, it was really quiet. I don't know if it was the late hour or what, but everyone was super low key - saying hey to friends or introducing themselves to others, detailing their cars, or just standing there and staring.

    I spent a little time with Jack and Kathy Stirneman, who have ascended to the title of "nicest people in the world" in my book, and also met a guy named Brad who had driven this bitchin' little Model A down from Connecticut on his own (I saw him at every single cruise and event we had all weekend). It was just a neat vibe that continued throughout the weekend, and as much as we put into planning this thing, credit for that part of it falls 100% on the people and cars who were there.

    Great seeing you and Norm. Anytime you are back East and are rolling through Jersey on your way to wherever, you got a place to stay.

    Yeah, and that's exactly what I told him at the show when he downplayed his photography.

    Ryan, you have the skill to pull off tone and detail, plus a great eye and good taste in cars to boot. Great set!

    Hmm, I didn't see those film wrappers....

    Thanks again for the kind words.

    Norm's a sprinter... Who knew? Watching us "sneak" on to the track must have been hysterical.

    haha! wish I could've been on that leg of the trip. i'd have done my best to go up against him. but I think Norm is more of a long distance runner, he's got staying power.
