July 17th, Glendora/Mt.Baldy SoCal Pix'N'Vids

Creating a new thread for pictures and video links for today's Glendora/Baldy drive. Bill posted some on the original thread, but they ended up on page 4, so this may be easier for non-SoCal folks to find.

Sorry I didn't get to say goodbye to you guys at the end. I realized we were going in the direct opposite direction from "home" for me, so I decided to bail out and head the other way.

We had a lot of fun, and have almost 2 hours of video. Going to take some time to find the good stuff, although I've already seen the tunnel vid and it is sweet, so I'll try to post it as soon as I can. Sean's (SoCalC55) car has a fantastic exhaust note which is captured very well on Marten's video.

Here's some pictures.

1) At final waypoint: Marten, SoCalC55, Davids88keys, Tslick, Bleen, Santamonica SLK32, V8SLK
2+3) Cars at the Valero just before the start of the run
4+5+6) Just before the g u n range. We caught up with 8AL8 here.
7) 8AL8's CLK
8+9+10) At the intersection of Glendora Mountain and Glendora Ridge

Bill posted the tunnel vid he took here, so I added mine to that thread.

I have some of the vids from today loaded to youtube, and still editing more vids. As you might have seen, the tunnel footage from my cam and Durk's is in the SLK Video section of the forum...along with a great sounding vid of Mo's SLK55 screaming through a tunnel somewhere on another continent!

We need to get more drive by vids in future meet and drives...its great to get the views and sounds of each car on the drive as it passes by the camera point!

Here are other portions of todays run in various parts of the San Gabriel mountains near Mount Baldy on vid:

2. The first part of the drive on Glendora Mountain Road

Is the clinking sound from the other keys on the key ring rocking back-and-forth? Any scratches at the key insert area?

The clinking sound is my camera tripod, folded up, not being used and smashing around the passenger footwell in the twisties. I brought it in case the suction cup mount didnt work well in the heat. But I need a better spot to stow the tripod when its not in use. In the trunk it REALLY flies around and I am afraid it will smash into a delicate part of the Vario Roof mechanicals, so I don't keep it in the trunk in the twisties.

Since my first Stunt Road video months ago, no extra keys or a key ring attached to my SLK key while it is in the ignition .

Might be overkill at this point, but here is one last vid from my cam: the 2nd part of the drive on Glendora Mountain Road. It's pretty twisty and my unused tripod is really rattling around. I'll have to find a better (quieter) spot to stow it while filming with the other mount.

Certainly the first Subaru WRX black and white patrol car I have ever seen! I remember wondering what kind of car was it when we passed it in real time, frame by frame looking at the vid gave me the answer.

Summary Video

Ok, I lied:

One more vid from the July 17th drive:

I tried to take the best sights and sounds from the drive videos, and threw in some photos Durk and I took (thanks Durk!) added a little music and editted it all down to less than 6 minutes.

These SLKWorld meet and drives are a blast! Thanks again to everyone on this drive and extra thanks to Pablo (Bleen) for pathfinding and to Tom (Tslick) for the additional navigation.

My questions are:

When is the next one?

What location?

Will it have any tunnels?

All very good questions. If we keep on the current schedule, next run would have to be on

August, Saturday 14th. I'm afraid I can't answer the rest, but it's a good idea for a new post.

RyanAx may be in the LA area the weekend of August 7th. Meet-and-greet-maybe-drive then? Anyone free August 7th or 8th?
