Watch part 2 of the video.   ;)   If you think that is straight you need to get your eyes checked.

@jaz, start watching at around 9 mins in.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=il4C9zm1uUA#t=116

I think the boys at Top Gear found some cooler driving roads in Europe.

For Nebraska, Ponca State Part has a great set of roads.  Regardless, I'm excited to see this many folks coming to the event.  I personally haven't seen one locally organized like this since the Super Meet in 2012.

Exactly, I was talking about the roads at Ponca State Park compared to others in the state of Nebraska, not the entire world.    I thoroughly believe people will love these roads.

I have driven roads like that in Colorado many times, but for Nebraska, the roads at Ponca State Park are in the top 5 in the state in my opinion.  Have you ever been to Ponca State Park jaz?

No, I try not to make things seem better than they are by comparing what the rest of Nebraska has...  It's a shallow pool.   After watching the video, it seems mostly uneventful.   The video I posted of me is why I think so as I used to do those roads several times a week for years.

Sweet,  Top Gear...

Jason, if you come out and don't enjoy it that is fine, but until you have driven the roads IN PERSON, you really can't make a judgement.    We are just trying to have a fun event where everyone can enjoy the nice weather, fun roads, and go to a place they have never been before, or may have never even known existed.   :subaru:

I'm not saying whether or not it be fun, I just didn't have the same opinion on what I saw.   Whether or not I come will depend on work, if the car works, whether, and other events, but I'm certainly not opposed. My STi needs to come out of the garage every now and again.
