I was searching for something else when I ran across this little gem. Some pretty cool footage! (no sound that I could figure out)

What a find! Thanks, DD!
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

Thanks for sharing. A very interesting site. When I was in Jr. High, I used to buy Cycle World to see photos of GP races, that took place 3 months earlier. :gerg:
