Let me know if you guys want to meet in Danbury. I'm likely meeting someone there, then someone in W. Hartford. Coordinating with the Boston crew around 2pm.

Likely on the trails by 6pm or so.

we are probably heading west towards new haven then cutting up towards Hartford. I'm on the CT border in NY so to get to Danbury would be back tracking

I'm thinking about leaving Wednesday night (it's a lot further from this end of PA). The wife wants to do some sightseeing along the way. I'll catch up with you guys when you arrive on Friday.

After dinner they're planning late night wheeling, but if the weather is ugly and you haven't been there before you might want to see it in the daylight first...some of the trails lead right out onto beaver ponds and peat bogs. Obviously, that's a problem if the ice isn't thick enough and you end up out there in the dark...

Can't tell if I will run into anyone of u and not sure if I would wheel on Fri Nite. Sat Am, I will see you guys at Big G. What time u want to meet? Am staying at the Grand Hotel

K. Get to Big G before 9am. Does wheeling start at 11am, or can it be earlier? Do we all bring lunch onto the trail?

Well this sucks , Im having brake problems ...after replacing the standard lines for SS lines yesterday my brake pedal goes down to the floor , I found out today that the regular bleeding procedure doesnt work on a 04 D2 , it needs a computer to bleed the system correctly , also read about gravity bleeding so I did today for 4 hours and it got better but erratic it will grab and the next time it wont , so Ed is going to find out if anyone going to the Romp can bring that computer to do a quick bleeding during some down time ... this fucking sucks just at the last minute .

The problem with the hawk eye is that's it's connected to your VIN and only one truck at a time. I'm not sure how easily you can switch vehicles. what he needs is a t4. Some people have luck with the power bleeds some don't. Easiest and most effective and expensive is t4 because it shuttles the modulator valves.
