    Trailblazer looks much better now with the (well, it's hasn't been new for a bunch of years now) new paint job.

    Nice photos! I have a bunch of Storm Runner construction photos some where, I just have to track them down and find them.

    I totally remember this! I remember when those stakes and markings were first spotted early in the 2003 season. I also remember the construction and the track along Rte 743. Thanks for sharing!

    And yes, Trailblazer looks way better with its current paintjob.

    I remember the giant pit and seeing the tracks as well - nostalgic post. Wink Even though it wasn't very long ago, I enjoy looking at anything of how HP has built and developed. I wonder if they keep those old advertising signs somewhere..
