DC Area Fall Road Trip 2018

Ugh, sorry this is so late. Let's cruise one more time before the snow hits.

Usual boilerplate:

If you have not heard about the spring/fall cruise tradition be sure to check out some of the previous trips. Just search the regional forum for Road Trip, you should find them all.

Here's the current planned route: (MAP) The trip is out to the Shenandoah, a cruise along Skyline Drive, then back to Old Bust Head.

As per our usual, we will be starting the trip at a breakfast establishment (IHOP @ 7495 Iron Bar Ln, Gainesville, VA 20155) for everyone who is interested to get some grub. This gives us the opportunity to show up at more flexible times. If you want to eat, make sure you are there with enough time to get your bill taken care of before we leave the parking lot. Departure time will be 10am, even if you aren't there for food make sure you are there EARLY. We'll be standing around chatting anyway and if you are late you run the risk of us leaving without you. Then you will have no other choice but to try and catch us up.

Remember: These meets are more about the people then the cars. Having your car be down for service is part of owning an Rx-7. Feel free to show to the meeting spot and grab a ride along with someone else, or if you want to drive along with us in something else that is cool too.

Once you decide that you are in, vote for the dates you are interested in. Also, list your screen name and real name below so I can have a running tally of who is showing up.

About time Rocky!

A huge reason for November 11 - in observation of Veterans Day, admission is free. At $30 per car, that's a nice incentive. Especially since this is happening after my season pass expires tomorrow. More meat from Two Fat Butchers for everyone! Maybe a bit more traffic to deal with but heck, maybe the Fall Cruise should be on Veterans Day every year. There's a free Spring day in April too.

Well, that's one bail. Is everyone else showing up tomorrow, or should we just call it off?

Iím still planning on showing up for breakfast at least. If the turnout is low, then I have other things I should probably do instead of the full drive. Matt and Bill are possibly showing up for breakfast so we should at least plan on that and not cancel altogether the night before.

Alright, sounds good. Let's still meet for breakfast and see what people's opinions are on the drive. Maybe we'll just have a parking lot car show and call it a day.

Hey buddy, good to hear from you. Missed you in the fall. Yeah we should probably have one to keep the streak alive. I've been busy with other things as usual so it hasn't been on the top of my head. Thanks for the reminder, if no one else puts it up soon I'll get something together.

Hey what's up everyone?! Are we done hibernating? Good to see you around Billy. My car is in storage and I'm not sure when I can grab it and prep it, maybe polish the wheels if I have time. June is looking better. Summer already!

Seems like it may turn into another breakfast or bar get-together anyways as late as it is becoming, and quiet. Rocky must be in a work surge. My weekends in May are getting sparse anyways - maybe breakfast or a brewery in June fellas?
