I got half way through the video (which made for great watching) and wondered how many buses took to the cruise, I couldn't be bothered to re run the video and count :roll: Did anyone do an official count of the entries to the cruise this year?

Ahh just seen the other thread 196 WoW 8O thats got to be close to a record for the most splits on the road at the same time in the same place. Does the breeze beat this?

Cool.....after 15 years of watching other people at Stanford I was hoping to get in on that video this time. I managed to get the bus to Vic Farm for the first time last year, but the show was cancelled.

I could see the camera wasn't pointing my way as we filtered in from the right :D

But then, your edit cuts just after Leigh passes in his powder blue panel van. We were 2 behind him, so I totally missed out. Then we stopped to try and help Andrew who's clutch release bearing went, so then we lost the convoy completely.

Oh well.... I'll try again next year :D :D

I realised exactly the same Kev. As soon as they filmed Lee's bus they pan to the left and don't get any of us leaving.
There's always next year. But here we are waiting to set off in the convoy.

Sorry guys didnt quite get everyone, I was fairly close to the end and my mate Greg jumped into the bus as I went pass so missed any that came out after. Not sure if he managed to get everyone who came out before.

Somehow our little patch of convoy got seperated from the rest.... but rejoined further down the line. At least we started in the right place and ended up in the right place, the weather was great and I loved every minute of it... roll on next year... :D
