Default 1-1-2019 ho5g gtg

Once again we are hosting the very first GTG of the new year on New Year's Day, 1/1/2019!
Festivities will start @ 9am-ish and go to 10pm-ish on 1-1-2019.
HO5G rules apply remember if you feel the need to fill the town's coffers with your hard earned cash do so at your own risk by driving DUI or speeding. The chief of police lives 3 doors up from the HO5G and he will be glad to accept your contributions.
A few notes about our GTG format:
#1 ALL newbies:
By newbies I mean all of you that we dont know. Just because you've been here doesn't necessarily mean we know you! You need to check in with us and get a name tag. This is our home and we would like to know whos here!
#2 Food & beverages: It's not fair to expect the same people to provide the bulk of the food!
Bring items we all share. We provide propane and grill.
#3 Work
Garage space as always is first come, first served there is a lift list. Big jobs need to be cleared by us first. As always NO timing belts unless done by a pre-approved (i.e. mrchill, HermTDI) or a veteran approved club member. Those arrangements MUST be made in advance with us & the person doing the work.
Bring the TOOLS and FLUIDS that you'll need for the job! We have a brake bleeder and oil extractor available. Bring containers for your fluids! (We have a relatively shallow well for water so fluid spills are unacceptable.)
ALL WORK IS TO BE COMPLETED BY 10pm
We enjoy opening our home and warm garages to you...all we ask for is a little courtesy and respect in return. As my sign says: BE NICE OR GO AWAY!
Now back to our regularly scheduled GTG - bring your tools, to do lists and a little something to share food/drinkwise!
Bring food, bring drink, bring tools and bring good weather!
The garage will be warm and the lift ready - clear all lift jobs w/ PeterV!
Hope to see you there (I mean here!)
PeterV & Hamsterdiesel
PS - Stay tuned to this post #1 for updated info!
Update #1 I will post addy just before the GTG .... there are BOTS out there that look for info...

Nice! My '15 is getting the phase 2 done starting the 26th, not sure if they're gonna do the full deal or just the reprogram. We shall see if I get my vacation that week, can't risk missing work on 2nd if I don't get vacation and lose 2 days pay...it's been a few years since I made the trek out....

That's only about 30-35 miles west of me! How the heck did you hear of it? You mean the night of the 30th?

Yep! I found it because I was looking for a half-way point to stop overnight that had EV charging and accepted pets. I used www.plugshare.com to look for options and Asa Ransom showed up. Then I checked out their website and saw that they had two pet-friendly rooms, so I booked for the night of the 30th. Want to stop by for a drink in the evening?

I'm in, but no diesel. I donated my last one this past weekend.

Looking forward to seeing yall again.

Ill lurk a bit before deciding what to bring; offerings based on perceived need.

Just had the phase 2 mod done on my 15 GSW. Initial indications - no perceptible change in performance. MPG? And will the Ad Blue last until the next service period? Perhaps not.
