Love the Shelby sharing the garage with a John Deere.  Good stuff!

So the 12 year old did some fine camera work as we took our drive: https://youtu.be/D-ZBoEV7KBI

Yeah, we had a good laugh afterwards about the camera tipping back when I got on it. He said he couldn't hold it steady. I told him that was the whole point!

At 3:30 I was attempting to drive around some downed tree branches in the road (it's been raining a lot here lately). I wasn't completely successful as you can hear one of them hit the car after it was thrown up by the front right tire. Then you hear me saying "ugh!" but fortunately no lasting damage. It bounced off the front fender behind the wheel.

At 4:25 you can see a young girl - maybe 8-10 years old - walking her big German Shepherd who attempts to run in front of the car. She grabbed the leash with both hands and held on tight. I was hoping she had a good grip because that wouldn't have ended well. She was able to hold the dog back but as I looked up in the rear view mirror she fell backwards and was sitting on the ground after I went by. I bet her heart was racing too!

I've got a crappy DSL connection so upload times are stupid long. That's why I uploaded them in lower resolution. Still waiting on my brother to do a ride-along with his Garmin Virb 360 camera. That should make for some cool video where the viewer can control the replay and view from any direction. My brother-in-law has a cool drone so I'm hoping to get some video with that too.

This video shows us going past a favorite local watering hole. There are two guys near the front door having a smoke but they both look up when they hear us coming. The WOT in 3rd gear after we went past was for them.
