I signed up. Showed up. Ate, drank, looked at pretty girls, drove, and left. That was it.

Tom Collins was the drive instructor for the Range Rover i was in. We had a great time. He knows a lot about Colorado.

I went on a crappy dealer off road event with Tom Collins once, a long time ago. He seems like a good guy -- he was very patient with the numerous jackasses on that trip.

There was one Korean cutie at the event. She was hot.

Oh, and Han found this Eva Popiel girl on YouTube for me:




Man, I'm in love with Eva Popiel. She's HOT.

Tom Collins is a class act. I am glad you were able to spend some time with him.

I have met him before, although briefly. It was great to chat with him more.

Oh shit. Nice. Eva Popiel is such a fox.

OK, more pics from the Range Rover Extraordinary In Action Tour.

The front gate:




I arrived early to scope things out:




Here are pics of the house:






















And there was some Rover love in the driveway:
















Inside the house were drinks and food:




In the back yard was a Gourmet magazine cooking instruction:










David arrives fashionably late:




David signs up for a Mk3:




David on the course:




Han took the following pics.

Another shot of the front of the house:




Back yard:




Won hits a side slope:




Won barely fits into the Mk3:




The vehicles all had the pimp daddy DVD system:




Center diff is locked:




The center and rear diffs automatically lock and unlock on the trail, depending on the trail conditions under the tires. It's quite remarkable watching the diffs lock and unlock automatically in conjunction with the traction control. No lurching at all. The ride is very smooth over obstacles.

Han's turn:




Grass/Gravel/Snow mode on Terrain Response:




Mud-Ruts mode:

No Watch Porn in all this other "Porn"?

Where's David's watch (or is he a southpaw?)

I think this was the only shot with a watch in it:




That's Won's two-tone Sub.

Southie, but only with the watch. That way my opponent underestimates the KO right expecting a jab.

There was plenty of green lantern love between Han and I

Bill Burke would be upset with me in that shot for not using proper steering wheel shuffle. I guess I'll have to go back and take a refresher course.

couldn't help it.

I had the seat at the bottom floor, with the seat back reclined and my head was still touching the roofliner and rubbing against the sunroof opening edge piping.

I had to lean on my right elbow to get little more clearance.

I did keep both hands of the wheel once we got to the trail.

But, I remember, Han did get comments from the instructor regarding his habit of keeping right hand on the shifter.

I thought I'd get my supercharged range rover the old fashioned way, but it would take me a while. So I just went to check the jackpot for Mega Million...



for this FRIDAY (06/29/07). I am sure you guys wouldn't mind a couple million dollars.

you in? 10 dollars worth each. you can do it 2 ways:

1) paypal hochung@expeditionexchange.com $11.00 and i'll go get 10 dollars worth of tickets in your name ($1.00 to cover for whatever paypal charges).

2) get 10 dollars of "MEGA" at your local lottery joint, scan it, and email it to me.

all tickets will be posted here.

I'll be right back, I am going for the lucky batch here around the corner.
