    Believe me, this isn't anything special I still have no idea of what I am doing. It's just a short clip of my attempt at transitioning with Movie Maker, using a tune from YouTubes music selection. I'm trying to figure out how to post the video on here with it just being a link. Also, does anyone know how to have it begin in 1080p without having to adjust YouTubes settings and where's a good place to get royalty free music?

    Nice Video! Is Mount Dora known for a large amount of pshycics or am I thinking of another city in Central Florida?

    You're probably thinking of a small town just off the Orange City exit on I-4, near Daytona, called Cassadaga. It's a creepy lil place full of palm readers. When I was in high school, we used to go there on Halloween. We'd get there before midnight to party in their graveyard. We'd try to scare the chicks we were with, while trying to get in their, well yanno :twisted:

    Tom Petty, wrote a song about it, Here's a link in case you haven't heard it; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFQPR6eI1FY
    and a live version; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6wAR1rVbLs

    I just tried to post this 4 times and got thrown off here. How creepy is that? Oh well, ENJOY!

    Yes it was Cassadaga I was thinking of. I went to Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona during 1982 and 1983. We also made many trips over to Cassadaga. Thanks for the memories!

    Ditto, '89-90, and I remember slipping over to Deland and Cassadaga whenever we wanted to go looking for trouble :D

    Hey, that should be a challenge. We should take our Phantoms over there. Maybe we'll all have flyaways... :twisted:

    We will have to get our palms read to see if flyways are in our future!

    Bitton Hill up in Walton county in the panhandle is the highest point in Florida. Britton Hill, by the way is the "lowest high point" of any US state.

    I have (or had) no idea what the highest point in FL is, I just know that was always the punchline about "Mt" Dora :D

    Sugarloaf Mountain is the highest point in peninsular Florida at 312 feet (95 meters) above sea level. It is in Lake County, near the town of Clermont. This compares to 345 feet (105 meters) above sea level for the highest point in the entire state, Britton Hill, located in the Florida Panhandle.
