Ultra Last Minute Posting for those not in the know. Lets do this.
Map 01 : The Airduct (backwards)
Meet at point b. I think you can park on penmar near rose. If not, use the parking lot at lake and glyndon.
Map 02 : Palms/Centinela
We'll regroup at the liquor store, then take off for the second and final map of the night.
Theres going to be a few map related details announced during the rules that you wont want to miss. So get there ON TIME @ 11pm.
See you on the streets.

Well I'm extremely disappointed in myself... with a cool 10 minutes to make it to the end point of the first map with only a SINGLE BLOCK left to run, I misjudged my surroundings and made a hasty advance right into an oncoming chase team...
As it turns out, my lady PixBroad was driving the MVC of the night. I tried to muscle past, but realizing that the chaser named Bryan Payne (as well as several others) were going to cut me off, I doubled back and booked it hard towards where I came. The alley offered me no easy cover. I tried returning to the finish, but as soon as I turned around I was nabbed. (See the aftermath in the photoset.)
Let this be a lesson, for those of you that think you won't like driving (like Pix), you might just wind up being the Most Valuable Car of the night.
We dealt with angry police officers who weren't interested in talking to anyone. Every once in a while, you run across people who are all business that can't be reasoned with. You're either trespassing, or there's minors out after curfew. Regardless, since everyone kept themselves under control we didn't upset any of LA's finest, and we're able to run two more maps after we we're originally told to disperse.
The third map back to Bristol farms was lacking energy, but there were a couple of great moments that made it worth it for me. One young girl gave one of the best chases I've had the pleasure of being a part of. She was switching back and forth, and dodging 5 chasers at a time. She ran into a light pole, grabbed it with both arms running full speed ahead, and used it to swing herself around 180 degrees and run off back behind the 3 chasers that were running without slowing herself down. She kept going until the last possible moment. It was epic.
Tons of photos from the night, hopefully some of them you enjoy. Theres little bits and bobs and stories scattered throughout, so go enjoy!
I'ts been a while now since this run... and I barely remember much about the night except that I blew both my and Pix's cover pretty early on in the map and we both got tagged. She became a chaser, and I walked back to get my car for the next map.
We went on to play North Manchester, and even after heavy losses, we played Art Meets Religion backwards to close out the night. It was super good times.
Please enjoy the shittiest photos I've taken for BOND yet.
Hey Everyone! Guess what happened!
The missing camera from the Special Edition San Pedro Ground Zero BOND was finally recovered a while ago by David Ra! And I finally got off my ass and developed it! What few photos there were have been added to the photoset on my flickr. Just click the photo above to revel in the nostalgia!

My ultimate goal for 2009 has been thwarted due to my own negligence. I will do my best in the closing months of this year to please the masses and finish out 2009 strong. We've got a couple more runs in us. Anyways, I have heard the call; it is time.
We will meet at Bristol Farms to run one of the classics. It's been quite a while since we've been there.
Map 01 : The Big Sleep
We'll finish up at the Hidden Vons, then head south for...
Map 02 : Toga Party
It's been even longer since we've been here. I'm looking forward to both of these.
Also, I'm just gonna say it again. I'm looking for NEW MAPS! If anyone out there has any ideas, please drop me a line anywhere, email, facebook, in person! Lets start 2010 with some new shit huh? Don't slack people. This is a call to arms!
Excitement fills my heart. This coming weekend will be good.
Prepare yourselves for the hunt.
I'll see you on the streets.

Sorry it's not a BOND announcement, but I would love any and all of you to come to the show we're having at my house this Friday. Get the details and RSVP at the FACEBOOK EVENT.
I owe you guys pictures from Septembers BOND, and the announcement for the upcoming run. I promise that at least one of those two things will happen tomorrow. It is coming up VERY soon!
