If you are looking for something to do this weekend, may I suggest you check out the Maker Faire at the San Mateo Co. Event Center. If you've never been to one before, you will be amazed at the amount of creative energy that surrounds the event.

I will be there on Sunday shooting HD video for the ARRL to show how young people interact with the ham radio demos there. There will be at least 5 ham radio booths with displays and interactive activities. Outside the center, you may see the a white van with multiple antennas. This belongs to the blackberry REACT group. Stop in to see their well equipped van.

Also of note; Sunday, Mike Rowe and Adam Savage of Discovery Channel will be there to give talks. I hope to get them on video at the FARS (Foothill Amateur Radio Society) booth.

Hope to see you there.

I've posted my first video from the Maker Faire. See Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs stand in a Faraday cage and get hit by arcs from 2 tesla coils.

I really would have liked to go to that, but had too many other things to do. Bummer, since I was close by, at Chuck's in Woodside on Sunday. A buddy of mine ran the security for the fair, so if you saw folks in black shirts that said "Praetorian", that was them. I could have had a free pass (he offered) but just couldn't free up the time.
My buddy escorted Mike Rowe in from the parking lot, said he was just as friendly, genuine and down-to-earth as he comes across on TV. Not a fake like so many celebs. And Adam Savage was cool too, but didn't want an escort once they'd cleared a path for him through the crowd after his talk.

All in all it sounded like good time and an interesting event. Maybe next year...

... and in my favorite color also :) Any chance we'll be seeing it at the annual event? I'd love to see the LR4 in action! First one in the club, I believe?

I'm hoping to bring it... need to get the trailer wiring done and a couple of other minor things though. I have to pull the camper trailer for the family otherwise it'll be the Suburban and '96 Disco...

don't suppose you want to see if an 18" rim will fit over the brakes would you? :-)

i have a full size 18" spare you can try to fit. every SA i've asked isn't quite sure if an 18" rim from the LR3/RRS will fit over the new, but none have actually tried. it'd be nice to know definitively.

Looking forward to seeing the 4th iteration of the Disco in more detail. my wife has interest in them and if i can bring home more pros than cons, perhaps there will be one in our future. also looking forward to meeting you Nigel.

Just got back from Vegas; what's that saying "What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas"; My wife and I stopped by the Land Rover Center in Las Vegas on our way to http://www.springspr...your_visit.html (more on this later).

We looked at the LR4 (very nice), and next day visited an outdoor depot place selling this tent trailer (business closing for sale - lots of these fire sale going on there); she said "What we see in Vegas, Stays in Vegas". Ha! Ha! Good one I said. Long story short, No LR4 or tent trailer coming home.

That's a great looking LR4!

And to add to that, your LR4 and others are celebs. Here's a pic of our group with your LR4 in full view along with other LRs on BajaRack's main product page: http://www.bajarack.com/racks
