Virginia GTG - Meet early April

Who's interested in a GTG in Richmond, VA in early April? There are some great parks we can get together and grill some weekend afternoon. Post and let's arrange something!

Eric

thanks eric ! i was j/k about the gtg as i will be driving to florence,sc on friday i will not have much time to spare .. too bad.
i would have loved to see your 'Peyton' in person.

thanks for the tip on amoco diesel - is that place just south of fredericksburg? it would be interesting to see any difference in performance/mileage when using 'premium' diesel.

I'd be interested in both events...

Our spring GTG at Ft. Marcy Park outside DC was a LOAD of fun! Love to do this more often.

Please e-mail me at jbeek@samhsa.gov

No "190Rev" listed on shopforum...

What gives, and how can we contact him/her? Live only minutes from "rally" site!

Let me know where and when & I will see if I can make it. I will be out of town the first 2 weekends in April. I hope to have my 300D back from the body shop by this Friday. played a little bumper pool with a guard rail about 3 weeks ago on an icy overpass just east of the Airport on I-64 Russ

Talking VA gtg

Hey All-

I am totally up for meeting in April sometime- I am in C-ville, but can easily make it to Richmond.
Can bring one of two 123 diesels, or maybe my new (to me) 73 280sel 4.5 (which is on its way from CA as we speak).

Talk about the other end of the fuel consumption spectrum....

Check it out:

Cheers,

JAS

Lightbulb Alternatives

Let me just throw out an idea- I am very willing to "host" a gtg in the Charlottesville/Albemarle area, too- there are amazing mountain roads around here, not to mention Blue Ridge Pkwy/Skyline Drive just up the road. Also, there are numerous vineyards that make for perfect afternoon diversions. Wine, mountains, Mercs, does it get any better?

Maybe later on this spring/summer, after a Richmond gtg. If there's any interest, just post or email.

Cheers-

JAS

Charlottesville would be a great gtg venue...

...and offer a "weekender" opportunity for those so inclined.

Keep me informed!

I'm in Williamsburg and also have an '85 300TD

but my April schedule is very full. On the other hand, our subdivision (7 miles west of WMSBG toward Richmond on scenic route 5) has a park which might not be too small for a Fall event, although it often is booked up by the members quite far in advance.

So, are you guys going to have a GTG or not?

I can remember the goading leathermang gave us up here in New England/ New Jersey when we began planning a second after we had our first and no one actually found anyone else at the agreed upon site. It was apparently a mall or some other heavily populated spot in NJ where it is pretty common to see a significant number of MB's. Without some very specific gathering place, the forum members were not sure enough the other MB drivers were there for the GTG, or just shopping, to approach them.

Anyway, leathermang was instrumental in the success of our following ones, mainly by dropping some serious "hints" about how to organize one. The first steps though, are picking a place and a date. The place should be somewhere where a bunch of MB Diesels stick out and you can find each other, and the time should allow for those that show up early or late and leave early or late. The boys in Texas also add some grub to the event, which would be nice at one of the next NE GTGs.

Good luck on the GTG though, and keep us posted on the location and date. You never know when someone from Texas or Connecticut might be planning a drive through your area....

Jim
