Dieselken, I was supposed to go to the South East PA GTG. Some work issues may prevent that. I am familiar with this location and I plan to come by. Do you need anything food, drink ? I have a couple of large commercial Water(?) cooler
as well as a portable commercial propane griddle/oven/grill combo. Let me know.

Alan - Glad you can make it.

I was not planning on bringing food and drinks, but feel free to do so if you like. So far, not many have responded...we'll see as we get closer to the date.

See you then!
Ken

I am looking forward to it. I emailed a couple of other members from the site that I noted
live in the area.

It was great to meet everyone. I wish that I did not have to run off.

I know someone took a few. I was only able to stay for about 2 hours and talk shop with those there ( 4) but the mix of cars was good and the stories and experiences with those cars were great. I want to get a list of the emails and
"Real" names of those that were there and anyone else in the area for future reference. I wish I could have stayed longer but work was waiting.

Wish I could have made it to either this gathering or the Pa one. Instead we were in Montross, Va looking at a church with the Wifette's "brother" from college who is finally getting married.
I am glad you guys had fun!

You're really going to have to get your priorities in order, my man.
