Does this event start where we ended at the June 8th Tail of the Gecko with East of the Bay Mini's by chance?

OK, quick question since I'm not familiar with that area. It states the start is just south of the BP. I checked out the streetview and was trying to determine where the spot was at. Just how far south? Can you see the BP from the start point?

We better have done well...car overheated on the way back...rode back on a flatbed. :( Will get it sorted out next week.

A fun day anyhow! (And really glad nothing broke out on the route!)

Stainless brake line rubbing a tire will do weird things.

Still finishing up "grading" the photos. Should have it all sorted out in another hour or so.

Photos are great fun, but they do take some time to sort out!

Here's what I realized after I got home: 18 "round specific" intems times 2 + 4 "bonus" items times 5 = 56 photos per team. 12 teams = 672 photos!

Even without connectivity issues, if I took an average of 10 seconds per photo, it would take about 1.8 hours to get through them all!

I'm not that quick, some photos take more looking than that. Plus there were connectivity issues. Plus there were people asking me questions. No wonder I was only 2/3 done after an hour and a half!

Anyway, I'll have it done soon. Some great photos!

And now they've been transferred to the Flickr gallery, thanks!

563 photos out there. That's nuts!

I've got to go watch some Hobbit movie. More later...
