Hey gonzo, we have a problem. The ROE to Pindar is on Saturday and this is Sunday, what to do, what to do??? At least I'm schedule to be off work that Monday, if I'm still working!

Pete, count me in for this one. Lets skip the ROE to Pindar. It wouldn't be fair for those not on LI to make the trek. Traffic is just too unpredictable. On Sunday, I spent more time trying to get from exit 13 on the NJTP to my house than I did getting to exit 13 from College Park, MD! :eek: What should have been about a 5 hour ride, turned into 8. Are we planning on meeting at the same place on the Hutch as last year? That worked out well.

It took close to two hours when we made the trip last year.

41.041111, -73.672498 to 486 Portland-Cobalt Rd, Portland, CT 06480 - Google Maps

It didn't feel that long heading up since it was a lot of fun "playing" in our caravan.

If we have enough interest, we can just duplicate our plans from last year and head up the Merrick Parkway again. I know of a long tunnel enroute that many new speedART owners with shaved pipes would like to try. Humm, that sounds vaguely pornographic somehow...:hilarious:

Good day
Macscaymans
And I thought I was bad with vehicle turnover....I think you got me beat!!! LOVE IT!!! Mini's are awesome and the John Cooper is supposed to be quite a vehicle. Good luck with it.

Looks like we've achieved critical mass, I will begin a list and figure out lunch arrangements.

macscaymans, great looking new car!

USMMA89, I hope you can meet us there, with or w/o the exhaust! ;)

We're missing some of the usual suspects. It is a Sunday run after all!

Thanks Pete,

I would love to make it, but work will probably prevent it. I was looking over last years photos and they make me drool. I will keep my options open though. Yeah...the exhaust...I am calling Stephen right now...I am a bit perturbed if you couldn't tell from my postings. The patience flew out the window after his last email. What a bummer!!!
