Yo Folks,
Colin here. Figured I'd take a break from the partying and get some fresh air. You Californians have no idea how fricking hard it is to breath in a European bar/resturant. These people smoke so many cigarettes it's insane.

Today we had our check in meeting. Had photos taken and signed some papers, did anyone actually read them? No! haha I wonder what I signed over to Gumball We were all issued driving suits, shirts, hats, belt buckles designed by blink 182, and DC has hooked everyone up wth shoes. The Gumball watches made by Techno Marine are covered in diamonds, so Im thinking we aren't getting those for "free".

Had a chance to talk with Bucky Lasek and explain who these guys with all the Independent clothes were Scmoozed abit with folks, and I rocked my Burt Reynolds ambulance driver outfit Gumball organizers approached us earlier today and meekly asked, "uh, you guys don't happen to have a car jack do you? We forgot one." haha, so we just might be fixing every flat tire that comes around. Word HAS spread that we have a fridge full of beer onboard. We're trying to figure out the best way to hand them off to vehicles as they pass us, gotta chase that Gumball Spirit award somehow.

We pretty much skipped eating all day today. It was one of those Hurry-Up-And-Wait type of events. First check in was at 1100 hrs, that turned into 1300 hrs, then it turned into 1900 hrs, then it started dumping rain and now we can\t put our stickers on the van since it won't fit anywhere dry. We're hoping tomorrow morning will dry out.

OK folks, sorry for all the typos and tangents. Blame the Guiness, beer is food.
If you can't beat 'em, run 'em over.

Hey jongens! Hier ene berichtje in het Nederlands voor onze enige Nederlandse dude in da Gumball 3000 2004 Rally!
Wij hebben twee topdagen gehad daar!
Er zijn wat mooie foto's van jullie sportsmobile bij, maar ik heb helas geen eigen website. Hieronder wel de site van iemand anders die wat fotos op internet heeft gezet.
Succes met het vervolg van de race en het opdrinken van het bier in de koelkast.
De stickers zijn geplakt, bedankt daarvoor.
Goede race verder!
