Keepers of the Blue Flame 08
« on: October 19, 2008, 10:01:09 PM »
OK all you land speed enthusiasts, here is brother Lou's second video short from the 08 BUB meet. As you see by the intro, this one is of the "Keepers of the Blue Flame" team. You gotta love these guys. In short - Brother Lou shot over 7 hrs of video, he'll be teasing us with short clips for the next several weeks, then doing his editing majic and puting out about an hr. or so dvd to donate to BUB. My only question is, - who's next Lou?  But he wont tell me. Have fun, enjoy.

Ha ha ha...Brilliant! Yeah, gotta love those guys.

Thanks Jimbo, keep'em coming.


Here's a picture I took of that weird 'Joe the Plummer' contraption.

Here's a shot of me attempting to sit on (in?) that thing:



All I'll say is that I wasn't able to fulfill my hymeneal duties that evening.  Talk about uncomfortable...
