spoiler

Boys: Last night was a good time.

more than that would be a big mistake IMHO.

I noticed the pack was bunched up most of the time, regardless of speed.

as speed increases, so should following distance.

I gave burnhard and you a good couple hundred yards most of the night so that M5guy (behind me) had a chance to stop/slow.

Randy: Am I a wuss or not?

My logic (and you could tell from last night) is that when it is a big group, you have to be careful. The chain reaction of 1 mistake can be huge.

Last night's full group was half of last weeks group. Hence, my average speed was a little higher. On something like Spudnation, any type of speeding would be a very high risk. Afterwards though, when it was just the 4 of us on the vacant backroads, things are much more controllable.

Basically, like I've seen Spud note, I would feel terrible if someone ever got into any type of accident because of something that was under my control. I'm still younger and stupider than him though, so my tolerances tend to be higher.

Enough of all that though, you guys know your limits and don't get too caught up in the rush of speed. Even on the 401 rally to Mississauga, there was very little to no weaving. I appreciate that.

Crazy cruise, maybe next time I'll bring out the car. On second thought, I am lazy, so no I won't.
