TX, OK, AR, & LA Tech Sessions & GTG

Please have a look at my posting at http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/events-gatherings/196837-official-1st-annual-mercedes-shop-fast-lane-gtg-tech-session-tx-ok-la-ar.html#post1589271

This is going to be a great opportunity to get together, learn from each other and from our resident super moderator and guru Roy Hunter (whunter), and generally have a good time in a gorgeous setting.

I'm posting a reference here because there is also an antique car parade and rally (read "vintage and classic", though there will be several real antiques there as well) and your participation would be more than welcome. Even if you don't participate in the parade or rally, our presence will make a good showing, and it would be great to have you there!

Calling all airline employees and folks with mega frequent flyer miles!!!

We're trying to find a cheap way to get Roy (whunter) from Detroit to DFW. There's NO QUESTION that he's coming to the GTG, we're just trying to save some bucks if we can, since he's saved so much for so many of us on our cars.

Driving is out of the question, as is other ground transportation. It's a 22-hour affair each way, and we need Roy here -- and there for Fastlane! -- not spending a day on the road each way and trying to make sense in the middle!!!

We've already checked all the discount travel sites, and the best price is about $225 round trip.

Roy can leave Detroit any time from Wednesday evening (10-24) through Thursday evening (10-25). On Sunday night (10-28), though, he needs a guaranteed seat, 'cause Fastlane needs him back Monday morning when we're all gonna call and want parts!!

I know some airlines used to give their employees passes (on American they were D-3s) but they were stand-by only. That would only work for the trip down, and I'm told by a few current airline folks that standby's become almost impossible to use between major cities. All you pilots and others, correct me if my info is wrong.

If you have any ideas, frequent flyer miles you're willing to donate to the cause, whatever -- please let me know.

Thanks --

Sunny

Somebody order $100.00 worth of parts from Fastlane. Just tuck ol' Roy in the box and shipping is free!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Never say you're sorry...

...when the line is THAT good! I LOVE it!!

He's kinda tall, isn't he? What can we order that would be long enough to give him room? A bumper, maybe? My UPS guy would be more shocked than he usually is....

Anybody got any other thoughts?
