The Hank Thread
Well, I made it home safe and sound. After 2 long days at work, I guess I've had enough time to digest this year's convention. All the way from first roll out with Mark Schoenholz (Fatboy SE-R), Thurs morning, to breaking off the PA turnpike exit and texting Mark goodbye on Mon night. I gotta say it was exhausting, but damn I had fun.

First and foremost, I have to thank Rob (SE-Rican) and Lou (Lourok) for going way past the call of duty as convention organizers. I also want to say a special thanks to Rob's wife and her family for sharing the 103rd with us and busting their asses getting everything prepared so wonderfully. Thank you! Thank you!

I also want to thank Mark Schoenholz for being our taxi driver at the event and my wingman for the long journey to and fro. Thanks bud! Cliff gets a thanks for the longest Crown Royal run in history, as well as, a fun Walmart/movie expedition. Thanks for driving Cliff!

I remember Rob (SE-Rican) saying he overheard someone say that the convention changed their life. Who ever said that was not exaggerating. This was my 3rd convention and every year it has gotten better than the last. This year I really felt comfortable with the folks around me. What I saw was people from all walks of life getting together to celebrate their silly little (for some big) obsessions with SR20's and to revel in the fact that the people around you get it. You didn't have to explain anything. I think that's why it feels like family. It's nice to know you're not alone in the craziness of it all. I heard someone say that if it wasn't for the convention they would have sold their little bucket years ago. That says a lot.

The other thing that was real apparent was the diversity of our group. Jay (eggman), ShawnB and I had a conversation Sun night and were laughing our asses off at what the hotel staff and the other guests must be thinking as to why we were all together as a group. Black, white, latino, indian, old n gray, young, male, female, straight, gay, father/son, father/daughter, mother/daughter, yuppie, urban gangster, viking, rural hay seed and everything in between. It must have been baffling to figure out from the outside looking in. The cool part is we just see each other as fellow SR heads. What other group, let alone a car club, has that kind of mix of people? It's pretty special, if you ask me.

Enough with the sappy stuff. Here's some videos and pictures for your viewing pleasure:

This was a test video to see how my iphone does. Not bad, excuse the shaky hand, I'm getting old.
Good ole american muscle:

This one of many of Jamie's runs. I believe it was low 12's:

Mark Schoenholz's attempt at the 100mph club. It ended badly.
(The music was playing over the pa, I didn't dub it in...pretty funny)

I'm not sure who this is. Sounds badass:
