I have tried several times to post video from the lake bed of Jessi's run in the NAE, I guess the file is too big , however if you go to FB you should be able to find it under the 'Alfa Garage' page.
on another note it was a pleasure to work with the team on this endeavor , the most dedicated and friendly bunch  of folks I have ever worked with !

Congrats Ed, Jessi and crew.... emergency situations test vehicle and driver... multiple failures and no major damage, a little sage brush in the wheels.  Good job driving

Hey MX304, Is that video of 2nd run at the 4 1/2 west side ?,  we were on west side about 3.9.  

I think i recognize the voice in the video, (hey have you seen our hats -- gravel, or pavement)
Great Video clip, thanks.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

For some reason reply 154 shows a blank page on my computer. I quoted the page and this showed up, so I will post it.

Tom G.

Well that did not work as it came up blank also, so let's try this. For some reason my computer will not let me post a facebook link, so combine the two parts below and it will take you there.

Sorry to create so much confusion over the videos , one problem I hadn't noticed was the "Cuss filter" it changed the name of the FB page , It's A##hole Garage ,  (you can probably fill in the blanks). Or like someone posted a link to my page Richard H Thomas , On FB .
Yes we were on the west side of the course about 2 tenths back at about the 4.75 mile. we were attempting to time between the 4.5 and the 5.5 , however Jessi was 100 yards off course to the west at the 4.5 , and passed us at about 650 away, A bit too close for comfort but it made for a good video !  Funny thing was we all took a vote and decided which direction to run if things went wrong, however none of us had the sense to yell "RUN".. Too much fun !!

No problem Billy, but I wondered why I could not find the alfa garage on Google. Ha Ha Ha now I know why. Thanks for the video it was great.
