Anyone see anything scary? I noticed we did infact come home with less Bimmers then we started with

I heard there was a haunted house near the bridge. My friend said there was a small pathway that lead to it, any idea where it was?

LOL, when in doubt, blame terry.

I think I know which path your friend is refering to, it's actually *just* further down Sewells, maybe 50M or so. There are a lot of stories about the area in general, it's pretty funny.

Great run! Excellent route! Sorry I missed the return trip.

Was that ice on the road during the first part? Never felt any slippage but it sure caught my attention!

That was terrific! (Aside from the odd bumpy section that would have wreaked havoc on inadequate suspensions.) Thanks for letting a non-BMW join in on the fun.

The return was the best part...

Are you refering to the downhill part when we turned left onto Meadowvale, heading onto the single lane bridge? The pavement always looks that shiny, even in the summer. Very strange.

Your MX-6 is stunning, I love it.

Great meet/cruise... I've never driven those roads as hard as we did yesterday. Like already mentioned, the only thing that sucked was the bumps..

Too bad the weather's getting really shitty now... it would be fun to have another one.

Alvin and I missed the cruise to Wimpy's because KK took so god damn long to make my hot chocolate. We followed Vlad and Edwin and they weren't even going on the cruise.

We were told over the phone to go down old finch, we booted it all the way until we reached Steeles!

anyhow, thanks to blackedout_e36, we found each other and found our way to Wimpy's.

Keep your CAA card with you. Their extrication services may come in handy!

Hehe strange...that means you must be pulling out of the corners in the wrong gear, heel toe would be a great application on the road we drove on

Mystical, even though I didn't drive, I'd just like to say you did a great job on organizing the meet. You gave complete directions prior to leaving KK and kept everyone within the group.

Jello's MX-6 looks mint and very clean, your car pulls when we were leaving from Wimpy's!
