DC Area Spring Road Trip 2017

Spring time is coming early this year... Maybe? Either way, let's start talking about the cruise. New route? Old route? I enjoyed the Dirt Farm brewery last time. Any new ideas or just want to do that again?

Anyway, here's the usual boilerplate:

If you have not heard about the spring/fall cruise tradition be sure to check out some of the previous trips (HERE,HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE)

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 after we've already woken up all the law enforcement with our loud exhausts.

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.



Who's coming?

I got the stuff to start my g-mount but I'm afraid if I take the carevalrta to start the install I won't make it! I may end up waiting to install until after the cruise.

I am going to try and make this one and not confuse which weekend it's being held. I'd be fine running the fall plan since I missed out on that, but I'm fine with whatever.

Matt chimed in as I was TRYING to add my name to list, didn't add properly. Tech challenged. Trying again. P.S. If screw up again, can someone add me to to the list properly ? P.P.S. Rocky you have vote deadline April 13th - assume you meant March 13th, which is this coming Monday. Bill

HaHa, there's always something. My FD isn't even registered right now, need to fix the odometer board again so I can do my last emissions test. I may be in the FB... or GT6 again

Yeah, may want to put it on your Calender with a notification this time

Billy B, you crack me up. Don't stop.

I loved Dirt Farm and the drive to get there other than the last 1/4 mile. That rocky - boulders really - hill climb in the FD was painful. Maybe someone can bring an SUV and shuttle us up? I'll see what other path and destination we could make.

All mute for me if this doesn't occur on a Sunday though.

Sorry to Matt, Duc, and you Derek. The Majority has spoken and it looks like the 8th is going to be the date. Hopefully we can arrange another trip a little more into the season or we can all just meet up at another event.

It looks to be the 8th of April Derek, so it's on a Saturday. I hope it rains on them. Haha, I kid of course. Bummed. Now how will my FD get driven more than 200 miles this year?

I'll watch for updates and may try to meet you all out at Old Busthead if that's the route you end up taking. Have fun!
