WHOA! LOL...... I just looked at a video sent to me by my brother, and the VHS has the complete scene when Jared grenaded his hub trying to climb Upchuck on Behind the Rocks. Perfect angle from the left rear of the vehicle and you can clearly see the hub exploding.... looks awesome in slow motion :D

I've got an old Snappy thingie that makes video into computer files, I'll try to install it on my computer and get a photo to post :) Is there a newer better way to convert VHS into a file?

Nope, the software was too old to work on anything after Window95. If anyone knows a free software to convert VHS to digital, I'd still like to post it, but I won't spend money on software just to use for this one thing.

Whoa, I never even saw that post of yours Gerald...I'd really like to see that (or just show it off to all my friends :D ) I'll check around and see if I can't find anything for free...I'll be in touch...

I remember his friend (I'm sorry, can't remember his name) saying that he got a real good shot of the first obstacle on Behind the Rocks...how did that one turn out?

wow, look what i completely forgot about!

Gerald, would you happen to still have that video? If you'd like, we could work something out where you could send it to me and I'd send it back after capturing it to my computer.

Lemme know if you even see this...

Yes, the picture tells a story there. One of those random shots that came from the trip that doesn't show any real action, but has some great elements (I think)
probably posted it before, here is original...

I imagine you looking at that lump of rock in the lower right hand foreground and being a little skeptical about you spotter's directions...
BUT, probably still navigating to the crest of the hill.

:D
