Two completely unrelated events: The 48 Hour Film Project and a slotcar set. On Wednesday we met some friends at the Silver Spring AFI Theater for a showing of the 48 Hour Film Project. The format consists of about 10 unique films, produced by different teams and all competing for votes from the audience. The rules (as I understand them) are that the film must be filmed, edited and completed within 48 hours and all of the films must incorporate a common phrase and prop; in this case the pop was a bracelet and the phrase “that’s what I’m talking about”. (For those in Missouri, there is a showing from June 8 through June 10 in St. Louis)
…and I setup the slotcar track last weekend. Sheltese dislikes slot cars almost as much as the vacuum cleaner.
I rode Schaeffer Farm this morning. But, instead of stopping at the car when I was done, I rode across the road (Schaeffer Rd) to a small trail head. This trail, which I later determined was the Hoyles Mill Connector, goes through grasslands, technical rocky sections, two stream crossings, and some abandoned gravel road. One of the stream crossings was about 50′ wide and 3′ deep at one point (yes, my M2 still floats). The other stream crossing was a washed-out bridge:
Total mileage this morning was 17.75 miles in two hours and one minute, with an average speed of 9.26 mph.
It looks like someone from MORE found the Willys…
