The WTF crew headed to the Demaree Farm in Cross Plains, Indiana, on Sunday the 26th of April. Jeff raced, while I filmed, and it was a decent day all in all.
The day was looking to start out as quite a bust from the filming aspect, because our camera was left on by an unnamed party the day before the race, and so the battery was just about dead. So with a little time just before the race i plugged the camera into my truck power and started it charging. In the mean time i went to the first Check Point and started taking some photos. They had a semi trailer set up with a jump over it and then you could also take a pass through it to avoid the jump, so it made for some interesting pictures. After shooting some pictures for a little bit i got the video camera and it said it had about 130 minutes on the new big battery so i took a chance and headed into the woods. Turns out my camera battery timer lied to me but it did pretty decent.
In the woods i found some neat woods sections and some really cool creek crossings. The course overall was very fast with some really wide open field sections, and even some fast wooded sections. Since it hasn't been all that long since we got a rain there was actually quite a bit of mud out and about that seemed to be causing some problems for a few people here and there. With about 20 minutes to go in the race, the camera finally died, and so again i went back to shooting with the still camera. I got some good pics that i will post later this week, so look for those on the photo page.
As the day wound down for the bikes we went to the start of the quad race, which was the first time I'd been able to witness that. It turns out that I positioned myself at the wrong place at the start, and me and my one year old son were watching and we were very near an accident between a quad and a spectator, which was very scary, as well as an eye opening lesson. I haven't heard the condition of any of the parties involved, but we here at Wasting Time Films wish them the best, and hope that everyone is good.
