LOL.

Like in a TDI, I will only be stopping twice for fuel along the way with the BMW's 600 mile tank range. I will be doing the drive straight through (1240 miles) like I normally do when I drive from NH to Cocoa Beach FL (1400 miles).

A big thank you to those who have shown an interest in volunteering. Some of you have heard from me by now.
Those who've claimed 'flexibility' with their schedules - I may have to coordinate with you on site to fill in the gaps. Please let me know if there is any time/day you cannot do - I'll be able to better fill our needs while meeting yours.

I'll seek you out to volunteer for a time or two. Probably not during shine-n-show. Look forward to seeing you again, Hamster.

My exact issue - L5-S1. Numb left buttock and left foot. Surgery will be done Nov or Dec. Drive from Reno will be interesting, but looking forward to the event. Glad to hear your surgery went well overall.

Has it been that long. The Ho5G has missed you. Perhaps the red tee shirt group should reassemble.

I have missed the Ho5G for sure Lots of fantastic memories. I will make it for one of the infamous GTG's

I think it will be really nice to get the "red tee shirt group" together for a reunion

I hope you enjoyed the 'Fest.
