This is coming from someone who has gone ~ 5-10 times in the last 6 weeks.

So are you guys actually planning on rolling out at 6:30 or hanging out for a bit and then rolling out? Because if its a tad later so its more on the safe & fun side i would love to come join. Actually I take that back i will probably be there anyway even if there wasn't a meet up =x

P.S. Hi guys! new around these parts! (well the forum not Arizona).

Sorry to hear about your car. Hopefully you can get it up and running soon. But who says no pics = no canyon run. Its going down no matter what. Hopefully Marin (nelsmar) will bring out his camera.

Thanks for the info! I've been wondering how busy night drives were.

Sorry about the radiator, lox. Hope you have a speedy and cheap repair.

See the rest of you tomorrow

If you haven't been at night I recommend always bringing someone with you. Luckily most of the area has cell phone reception on most networks as of 3-6 months months ago. It used to be rough when there was no reception and someone broke down. Someone would have to drive all the way out to call for a tow truck haha.

If you want a "tour" at night toss me a PM and i can tell you the next time im going

^This happened to me but luckily I didnt go alone. In fact, Marin came back and helped me get my car started again.

I was going to suggest to make back eg to make your own rig with a suction cup. Marin has done this before. In fact, my old accord wagon was one of his test subjects. pics came out very nice.

Sweet! Maybe we can arrange another "night run" sometime for those unfortunate souls who either can't wake up early or who have to work.

Hah MAN that completely slipped my mind that it was your EK that broke down. Luckily it was a legitimate break down not something bad. Alllwayyssss good to go with a buddy.

And yup! the pic above is my rig from last year. I will probably upgrade again this year and get something more portable.

PS small cars, wha? this one has a rear place to put my camera (some reason they labeled it as a seat, but i dont quite understand how it classifies as that??). And i woulda gone smaller but i just couldnt find anything smaller! :P

Maybe I missed it earlier in the thread, but where exactly are we meeting? I know it's a gas station but I've never been out that way before, so specifics would be helpful! Thanks
