Exclamation Northern VA GTG next week

As John Doe pointed out to me, my message header was not very clear, so let me just say again (hopefully clearly this time) that we will be having a GTG at Johnhef's house in Frederick, MD Sunday the 18th of November starting around 11:00.

If you're planning to come, say so here, so we can get an idea how many will be there. We do have to arrange for security, crowd control and things like that you know. These damned things are just so friggin' popular it's getting out of hand.

Yeah, these things are always a lot of fun and everybody that comes is just terrific. I wish you could make one of them, too, Jim. You and Carl could make a road trip to the East coast for the next one.

I'm saying I'm in. Hopefully my wife will be able to make it, as I'd hate to drive that far without her. So, were the Buffalo wings a go, or no go??

Buffalo wings are great. Bring 'em if you can. If you can't that's okay, too. Hope you can make it. I'd love to meet you.

Well, if the crowd's gonna be tight, we'd better appoint designated drivers.

Hmmm..


Sounds like a definite maybe. I missed Chambersburg, so this looks like a good time for a make up.
Let me check with the Commissar.

Can you pm me JH's address so I can plan a route?
Query: Is there still a lot of color on the trees out there?
They finally turned color here this week.

(I need an excuse to clean the car this weekend anyway.)

I think the trees are looking pretty good in MD and VA right now. PM Johnhef for directions. He sent some out the last time that were pretty easy to follow. I know how to drive there, but I wouldn't want to try and give directions to anybody else.

That's why I ordered the tents from Barnum and Bailey!
