East Coast Meet and Greet

I am interested in this, as I have mentioned. Though I am away on business twice in January. Dont know if it will work out. Seems we have folks interested but...we just need to pick a date to see who really could make it some time in January.

I agree. It's been my experience in coordinating meet and greets that someone just has to pick a date and place and say, "Here's where it is and when it is" and then see who can attend. Trying to coordinate people's schedules is just too difficult. You may end up with just a few rigs there or you may have many. The three meet and greets I've been involved in have had five, 13 and 28 rigs at them. I enjoyed the five rig meet and greet just as much as the 28 rig event. Even a two-rig outing would be fun in my opinion.

Oh, and by the way, coordinating a meet and greet doesn't have to be any more complicated than saying, "I'm going camping at X. Does anyone want to join me?" That's what Mike (Ford_6L_E350) and I did at Toroweep in the Grand Canyon a few years ago. Three other Sportsmobilers joined us and we had a great time with just five rigs. You can see pictures of that trip here: http://www.sportsmobileforum.com/viewto ... p&start=90

Carl: I think the "you" is you, since you started this discussion stream. Pick a spot/date and get the word out.

East Coast Meet and Greet

I am game for that weekend MTBGary. Do not know for certain how long I will be able to stay but that weekend should be good. And, your location is fine to me - just across the river. How many of the rest of you could swing it?
