I'm capable of drinking coffee most of the morning if I pace myself and have access to milk (I like my coffee to be palomino in color) and a "facility".

Talking FYI

The repair shop is next to a donut shop, and three buildings from the local SONIC drive in..

Two part stores less than a quarter mile.

Look forward to being there.

Yes this would be cool to see.


Does this GTG move to different areas? I wouldnt mind a drive to the great state of Texas, but this time around I have work related obligations and an over seas business trip that are killing my month of november.

Will anyone be getting video and high res pictures to document the tech sessions?


I would love to learn more about repairing the wood on my center console. I noticed the dash repair on the list.

Cool Stuff.

You all have fun.

Red face Sounds like an excellent time !

...just have to figure out if I can fit in the almost eleven hour drive each way.

I'm always wanting to learn, even if I don't necessarily do a job myself...

We just drove to one down the road from where it was held last year pretty late in the evening and had no problems getting rooms.
