LSP?
I certainly didn't mean to come across that way, just making it clear the further i have to travel, the less likely it will be. Thats really the story for most of us i imagine.

I'm just razzing you in Horsemover's absence.

Thats why I winked.

Thats exactly the case for me... but 3 hours 1 way isn't going to break me... I don't think.

Good debate guys...glad to see everyone is weighing their options. That's exactly why I posted up the poll.

If it really looks like Spring will be too much of a stretch for folks, we could/maybe should seriously think about shooting for fall instead.

And I'm willing to travel a bit, so it by no means doesn't have to be the locations I listed. I merely was trying to get some good discussion going.

Thanks!

Only six people interested? We will be lucky to get 3 or 4 actually there at this rate. Like Marv suggested if you have other ideas about timing or location post up. It would be nice to get some more people at one of these events. Speak up we won't bite.

Clay I think you scared everyone away when you offered to provide "The Beast" for everyone.

Jack,

Letchworth it is! I love that place! My wife's family is from Rochester and my company is based in Rochester, so we get back there from time to time.

Seriously, though, we probably have a bunch of Northeasters on here - I've seen posters from NY, CT, NJ, VT and NH.

By the way, I may have missed it, but what month are we talking about here for this potential shindig in Nashville or Memphis?

Any more interest in this? Clay will leave the Beast at home if that helps There is also talk of a NE meet but I am up for both if we can get this thing rolling. Fuel is pretty cheap for most of us:chuckles:.

Eric, I don't know that we've set a month yet. I think most everyone's spring is just about full aready, so we might just shoot for fall.

How about mid to late October?

not to hijack this thread but have a looksee at this. Scroll towards the bottom where it say "Chapters" and as you will see there are quite a few local state powerstroke chapters in the east. If your interested in meeting some Powerstroke enthusiast, this might be your hook up. These chapters are fairly active and they do alot of fun stuff together. We have an Oklahoma chapter (sooner powerstrokes) and i have met lots of good guys and a few of them turned out to be real near my house and we get together often...one guy lives 3 miles from me and i didn't know it untill we started the chapter.
These guys may or may not be vegi guys but they could be if you were to join them and educate em. They are ford PS guys and thats the main point.
