It sounds like a nice read but with ADD, it's hard to go past the title.
Cannonball run style race I mean "rally"; daily triple digit speeds on public roads; daily encounters with cops; daily hotel craziness and pranks.

All the comments about it being too long really are hilarious. People can't even be troubled to read anymore. Oh well, guess that is the result of all the facebooking and twatting...I mean tweeting. No wait I do mean twatting.

Mr. Big reader
I'm a doctor who's working a 12 hours shift today. I'm only checking my iPhone briefly every now and then. So not only I don't have enough time to read the whole post, it's very difficult to read it on iPhone. As far as reading, please check the size of any textbook that we read. Hope you sleep better now knowing that people still read!!

I have ADHD and I read the whole thing...Sure it took me awhile, but I did it. First step in trying to control it...do what you don't want to.

Interesting explanation considering the first excuse is that you have ADD...now you are a super important doctor that doesn't have time.

Here's an idea - read it when you have time.

It's asinine that Drake goes through the trouble to summarize his experience and half the posts are - "OMG cliff's notes" and "LOL who read that".

Great post and thanks for taking the time to share your experience. Some of us still take the time to read. The BullRun sounds absolutely amazing and I hope to have the opportunity to participate one day.

Wow, what a crazy ass adventure! Glad you didn't get arrested. The thrill just reading through your days was enough to get my blood pumping. I've always wanted to do something like this...

Can't wait to see the MTV special on it. Where can I find the previous BullRun DVDs (that are more recent than 2007/2008)?

Congrats for the amazing experience and finishing!

As for actual DVD's? I'm really not sure, you can find links online though. I believe Bill Wu has put the videos up on Vimeo from last years "Cops, Cars, and SuperStars".

Not "super important" just a doctor who works a 12 hour shift, 99% of those are busy which doesn't equal "important". Would you have said "super important" if my explanation was (I'm a busy subway ticket guy and can only check my phone between customers)??? I doubt it, so why is the sarcasm when it's a busy doctor??...Take it easy and don't judge people cause they might have a good reason.

Cliff notes is nothing bad. In fact, they're good. They can motivate readers that weren't going to read a very long post to read it. Like executive summaries of documents. The two aren't exclusive.

You people are ridiculous. I can't believe you've turned Drake's post into a debate about being spoon fed information. Let me summarize for you. This isn't a business meeting and there is no reason a busy person can't read this when they aren't busy. The point of the post is to enjoy reading about the actual experiences Drake had on his trip. If you want a summary of what the bullrun is, then do a search on google.
