Well after 5 attempts.......the forum has let me register! This must be a VERY exclusive group!

Looking forward to next week.
Loaded up and ready. Just need to pick up beer!

Will probably meet up with everyone at the Walmart (Newport/Palmyra, ME) Saturday AM. 

As Ed mentioned, I have a 18" chain saw loaded up.

Anyone else running diesel?......the ultimate bug repellant!

Cheers
Steve

Looks like weather will be perfect. High 70's during the day, 60's in the evening. Sun/clouds.

I'm ready.......picked up a bug zapper from Harbor Freight....best $1.99 spent!

Cheers

Which route(s) north is everyone taking..........so we can pick up stray parts!

I'll be heading up I-95 as I'll be starting Friday out from Groton CT.....don't ask!

I wish I was able to make it, but it's for the best that I didn't push my luck and decide to make the run up there for this.

  I ended up breaking an engine mount, snapping my Y-pipe off in front of a cat, and blowing a tire off the bead (taking our a wheel speed sensor) at 'The Wilds Safari' in OH last weekend.  It was a PITA, but not a huge deal since we were only a couple hours from home.  Breaking the engine mount and exhaust in the North Woods of Maine would have been a serious problem though.

  Take lots of video and pix.  I probably won't make it back out until Conclave now...

95 will make sense but friday mid day maybe very heavy with traffic Im leaving around 3:30pm from bergen county 87 to tappanzee and maybe 684 to 84 to avoid heavy traffic if anyone is going to be in the area around that time lets convoy up ......where is everyone sleeping friday night???

only place you will hit traffic if you come over the Tap to 95 would be near Stamford but only a couple minutes delay during the day. if you plan at rush hour I would go 684-84. We were talking about a lakeside campsite near the wal-mart. Don't think anyone booked it yet.

Well, 
    My passenger floorboard is soaked. Noticed it today as I was loading up molly into her car seat, and noticed water dripping out of the rear door onto the slider. Hoping for a clogged a/c drain. But the weather isn't cooperating so i can't even check it out.

Always look at the positive..........the weather is meant to be perfect up north, so your floor should dry out during the trip!
