As usual tick, great write up and great pics.
I hadnt been on the xbox for over a week before this meet and was frantically looking for a Dune Loader 10 minutes before this meet to no avail, so i ended up in my Bison (Banana as tick so lovingly called it) which i had no time to repaint (from Crew yellow) to something more appropriate. So glad i ended up taking it though as it was something a lot different to what i usually use and made for a more challenging drive. I stuck at the back with tick most of the trials and we had a ball as usual :-) The climbs for me and him were challenging, not so much for the normal trucks that attend, and to be honest a perfect blend of not to easy but not to hard. Spot on Steve!!!
The mini games were all good fun, a few people not following rules unfortunately which wasn't really cool as the games could have been a lot more fun for everyone had the rules have been followed. The tractor racing was more fun than it sounded, in fact so much fun we all wanted to have a go with golf caddy's and were planning on running it again on Fagio's if time allowed (it didnt). I always end up near the back in these things cause im
A. sh*t at racing,
B. Im always laughing to much at whats going on.
The Demo Derby in monster trucks was awesome in my books but i didn't have anyone blow me up with a gun, although i did have someone shooting at me relatively near the start but i didn't die and it stopped quick so i assumed it was accidental. One thing on this note though, when people are out of the game, i get that it might be boring standing around watching but Steve puts a lot of effort in to occupy people that go out early by putting heli's there for photo takers, other cars for cruising about in, platforms for photos etc. Please use them and keep out of the game. Now im contradicting myself a little here as at one stage i was trying to jump the heli in my truck but that really should have waited till we were done. Another thing was the heli's crashing into us four that were left in the game. As i say i still enjoyed every minute so nobody is to take this to heart, its just a thing to note :-) Awesome finish though with all four of us blowing up at once!!
The SING-A-LONG parachuting was dam great, im a lover of old music and tick always seams to have the right selection for me :-) It was a bit messy where we were meant to jump and land but overall a great laugh, and i landed perfectly in a boat so i was chuffed with myself, as the people in the lobby heard lol. From there it was off to the Island for another Demo derby kinda game which involved pushing each teams vehicles into the water. Sounds like a nice laid back game but i tell ya, the stress was real. Some high intensity moments for sure lol After that i tried to play Golf/Baseball with the jet ski's coming at us up the ramp, that was good fun till i took out tick by accident as he was trying to take his last photo. (sorry again mate, bad timing on my part totally)
After the meet was over we had a bit if fun in freeroam, id just modded my Warrner (engine-wise), drove to tick to take some photos and got pulled out of my car by a mugger, and the bastard took off with it. We took of in hot pursit of my car but it was quick, compared to the ratloader we were in anyway. Due to a great shot (see: Fluke), i killed him and he slammed into the bridge. We left it there so i could request it and i could have a nice car for photos. Turned out that unless you pull the mugger out of the car you cant request it. Turned out to be a great laugh. Afterwards a few quick photos with magnum and tick to end another brilliant meet :-) A big thanks to Steve, and of corse the rest of you in the lobby.
Very few photos i took.... (i thought i got more, i took so many more but bloody snapamatic failing...)
Top of the hill, where we end up getting knocked off, by someones who's handbrake ...failed??
I was a little scared to be sitting here, with this view, i had nightmares last night. Steve in the background flipping the bird

To make up for a lack of pictures, a few with some members of the crew a couple of weeks ago. I think it was Tallyforeman, Leavers007, biasedtuna, Magnumf4 and Me
Then we threw them down old mans crack and waited for a train.... the aftermath..
