Mid-Atlantic GTG

Well, I'm offering my place for another diesel GTG, there seems like there might also be one in NY soon, but I'd like to make one available for those in DC, WV, VA, NC, etc as well.

I guess we should start tossing some dates out there to see what might be doable for everyone, my suggestion is August 6th. We had 15 cars make it out to Bill's place a few weeks ago.

Here's a shot of the yard. Plenty of room and lots of nice roads for a drive nearby... I also have the garage and driveway if anyone wants to attempt some projects with the help of others that day. Maybe even some DIY how to's. The place is located less than a mile off Interstate 70.

I would be interested

I would be interested in the trip.
I have an 83 300TD that could make the trip, but it would
depend on the day, cause I'm on the road a lot.

When do you all think you'll know a date?

In my mind, that country around Frderick is some of the lovliest in the country. I envision a line of MB diesels tooling through the Middletown valley and winding their way up to monument knob. Hope my car is one the road for the GTG.

;)

darn, I was trying to avoid it, but I guess since you're twisting my arm, you all from up north can come too Where were you when we had the one in PA a few weeks ago??

the same goes for those of you that are not fortunate enough to have a diesel! I have a few gassers too, so I don't see any harm in letting a few more of them into my yard The more the merrier!

Everyone and anyone is welcome. Anyone know where to find the farmers almanac weather prediction for the whatever weekend we decide on? Lets look for something in July...

Gtg

I am up for it! I am in Annapolis and missed the northeast gtg at Bill's. The beginning of August works for me. Thanks for offering the venue John.

Johnhef,

You post above was the first time I heard about the GTG in PA. Don't know how I missed it.

BTW, where is Fawn Grove? I couldn't find it in the cities list of my Atlas.

Too far to come from Texas, which is too bad. Would like to meet everbody at one time or another.
Just wanted to compliment you on a nice place. Looks like the perfect environment for a GTG.

May I come too. I'm always up for a GTG. It's a 300, but it's a gasser.

When I read the header of this thread, I thought "Hmmm, how are they going to meet in the Mid Atlantic"?
Then I read the posts and was disappointed

Have fuen with your GTG.
