Will either a backhoe/loader or an excavator with a 32' dig depth work? Both will be on site..... How many warm bodies will I need?

All

A first Meet and Greet would be great. Just about anywhere in the Indianapolis area would work for me. Days and times would be my only concern.

Convert

What area are you building in? We need more TDI shops around.

Thanks

TDI_Convert is just west of Plymouth off US 30 - not exactly local to the Indy area and actually handier for Chicagoland distance-wise.

I drove down to the Boat, Sport & RV show last Sunday morning - right around 2 hours from door to door. Like CoolWht said, just West of Plymouth - 12 miles actually, on US 30, then approx. 2 miles North. Between Rt. 23 and 1100 E in Starke County on 600 North - mailing addy is Grovertown. A bit shy of 2 miles South of the Western end of Koontz Lake.

I have a meeting with the truss builder on Monday. DCELL, I also have access to a post hole digger mounted on a Bobcat (well, ASV actually). 12" and 18" dia is what he has, but I'm sure that I can rent a different size if needed.

I also just figured out how much dirt I have to dig from the pond - 16,500 cu. yds. At least I have access to a pump to drain the pond - it's got a 16" discharge. Now to figure out a way to keep the fish out of it!

It's going to be a busy year!

DogTraining TDI: It's not a shop, I finally have the funds accumulated to build the garage that I've wanted, but that's not to say that it won't be outfitted like a shop!

What kind of training?

I do Family Dog Training. I mainly work with families and new pet parents. I do both Private and group classes.

About the Garage, sorry (for me) to here it will not be closer to Indy.

But, what about a small GTG at your place once it gets built?

Small, big, who cares? But definately!!!! I've got a couple of Field Bred Springers, and used to trial one of them.

I should have a set of plans by the 15th of the month, and then the planning really starts!

Well I was sorta called out by DCell so I will post something. My self I don't see the point of driving 2hrs for dinner and not turn wrenches or learn some ins and outs about Vag-Com.
$ has been tight lately but I did make my last car payment. U can mod a lot for $300 a month LOL.
Someone already asked so I will tell everyone, I live around 86th and Collage

Ok, someone put this thread out there about getting a Indy group going, but it kind of fizzled.

Indy and surrounding TDI'ers are we still intrested in a meet and greet?

Let's see if we can't get this going.

Please post back.

IMHO a ideal place would be on the NW side of Indy at a place that has WI-FI on a day later in the week Wednesday-Saturday sometime this month
My reasons its proactive, info is to have whene U do this and the area of around 69/465 is instant road rage

I don't see a problem for the NW side of Indy. Wenesday, Friday or Saturday could work I can't do Thursdays. A 7:00 or 7:30 meet time at a decent resturant in the area should suffice.

Thought from the other Indy people?

Man, I haven't check the boards for a while. It's nice to see some other Midwest TDI brothers out there.

I'd love to come to a GTG. I work evenings so weekdays are out for me.

Dog, you're right down the road from Dreyer & Reinbold (@ US 31 & Apryl). They've always treated me well and have competitive prices on PD oils.

Convert, is that fertilizer plant still running in Plymouth? That place is/was bad news! Don't drive past it with your mouth open!

BTW, I love the co-op in Noblesville! I haven't been up there in a month or so. Anyone know what they're charging per gallon these days? I wish we had something like that on the south side.

Hal
Thanks for the info, I bought my 06 Jetta there. I was thinking the price they wanted was high on oil, I will have to check with them again.
