Yup Cypress is brutal for fog as well.

I packed it in last week because you couldn't see 5 feet in front of you.

The new mistery chair was a huge improvement. I have to admit though, it freaked the hell out of me. it was dark, foggy, couldn't even see the chair in front of me, I was alone on my chair and for the first time I was convinced it was going to crash and burn somehow. It was like a scene from a bad horror movie.
Haha, welcome to Seymour night riding!

We were up there as well. Were you still riding when the lights shut down?!
Now that was fun... sorta. We were on the chair and poof, out they went. Couldn't see shit lol. Top half was still on, so not too bad, but from the top park down it was dark as hell and foggy.

Anyway, yeah, pretty hard-packed compared to the weekend but still good to get up to kick off night riding! Stoked!

Give us a yell if ya heading up. Usually have a couple people riding, pretty relaxed crew

Haha.. Yeah, not having been to Seymour in two years (and only ever having been up there twice), I had no idea where the runs were. Every intersection, I had to stop, look for a hint of a sign, hop over to within 5 feet of it, so I could see where the runs went.

Apparently it's been dumping today, I can't go tonight cause I have to make up some time at work, then tomorrow's my wife's xmas party GRRRRR. It better be good on Thursday!

Nah, I was only there from 7ish to 8.30, but that sounds like fun haha.. It was bad enough with the lights on!

Yeah we should definitely meet up at some point. I'm always up for giving anyone a ride if they need one, no gas money required. Just makes the drive up a whole lot less creepy.

Saw a couple of deer going up last night, that was kinda cool.

You can do 4 days in a row. *makes jedi mind trick move*

(I started working for a Lucasfilm company a couple months ago, I've been making jedi moves at every automatic door I see, it's awesome)

Oh, the body and mind are down with that... but i'm living on takeaways from lack of general organisation and I have no clean shred socks. Should really spend a couple hours getting life back on track.

You can't really expect people to post that stuff online do you

I know the run you're talking about sort of, had it pointed out to me a few times never tried to find it on my own though
