A few weeks ago Josh came to me with an idea. The idea was to shoot a short video that involved snowboarding and a haggard BMW. So, one Saturday afternoon we met up in a field somewhere outside of Regina with snowboards, a snowmobile, Bobcat and one haggard BMW.
Winter in the prairies is full of monotony. Cold, vicious monotony. Yes, there are plenty of winter activities you can fill your time with, but nothing can really replace cars for any real automotive enthusiast. Sometimes against better logic you get the urge to drive your summer car.
First things first, I just wanted to say how awesome this year was for the car scene here in Saskatchewan. It seemed like every meet I attended was met with nothing but hot and sunny days. The DODOlogic meets brought in the biggest crowd Saskatchewan has ever seen, especially Fallout. Needless to say I am stoked to see what 2013 will bring. For now though, here’s a look at what my lens shot during this year.
This is the one time of year when, for a few brief moments, I can stop thinking of what I need to do and look back at what I’ve done. I was really lucky this year because I got to see and do a lot of cool things. So here’s a simple list of the things I saw through my lens this year.
I’ve tried to compress my three day excursion to North America’s largest car exhibition into a three minute video. My trip was comprised of three full days walking around the Las Vegas convention centre, enjoying the notorious sounds from rally cars, eating great American burgers and anticipating a massive bloody nose from the dry desert air. This video is the product of what I thought was worthy enough to show you, the audience. I don’t think any amount of words, photos or videos can truly illustrate to you of how big the SEMA show really is. I hope however that this video gives you an idea at what level of automotive finesse this exhibition has to offer. One element that I took from this experience is that I will probably never be able to appreciate any car show ever again, unless of course it is the infamous Tokyo Auto Salon. I hope you all enjoy my version of the SEMA trip summed up in three minutes.

I got tired of there not being a Monday Morning Rundown. It’s Monday morning and people want an escape from doing real work. Old man Dave has been too busy being a grown up to come through for you guys, but don’t worry, I will never be a real grown up.
