Paramedick, that means you'll be there?

For East Coasters who don't keep up with the forums and have never been to Versailles, Ky. (and don't know how to pronounce it), Paramedick is tops.

On a trip to New Orleans via Ohio and points south, our '02 sedan threw a code. It was about 600 miles too far for Hevster to come, so we pointed the car at Versailles and called Paramedick. "Come see me," he said.

When we pulled up, he waved us into his shop, fixed the problem (not a critical one, fortunately), and adjusted a couple of things that had nothing to do with the code. Then he waved us on. We drove the rest of the 2,000 or so miles to Louisiana and back home with full confidence.

I still can't pronounce the name of his hometown. (Not like the one where Marie Antoinette slept with Louis XVI.)

Ah, CRAP! I've been looking forward to this. But this is the weekend of the MS-150 on the Eastern Shore of VA. :( Maybe next year; but only if it's not on the first weekend of June again.

It means I'll try really hard to be there. I'm already off 5 of the 10 shifts in June. What's one more?......that's the arguement I'll use with the boss.

Fur sales with a V instead of a F.

I seem to have that weekend off and would love to rub elbows with those I have had so much interaction but never met.

I think I'll pencil this in.

You ride? I do the MS-150 in Maine every year on my fixed gear (yes, I'm one of those). Go to Impex and then come to Maine on vacation in August and ride the Maine one. It's a great time, but the century is not for the faint of heart with over 7,000' of vertical climbing. Plenty of room at the house.

What is the philosophy on light wrenching?

My friend has an '09 2.5 Jetta with ~80k that has never had the spark plugs replaced. Figured it might be the right time & place. If not, her parking lot will work.

You moved it! UGHHHHHH! I had my sights on the first weekend in May since I will have it off.

The first weekend in June is a big family reunion for hubby's family. I still might be able to pull it off. Might be in the doghouse though... :)

Looks like I might have to work that weekend... I could possibly attend in the morning and roll out around 1pm. I'm sure Jason will be able to make it up for the whole day.

Newbie to IMPEX

While I have been lurking around and occassionally posting to the forums, I have not attended any TDI events and would be interested in finally making it to one! I hope to return from my deployment in time to attend. Not too far from where I live in PA. Where do most people stay in the area?

Any local lodging. Some of us are fortunate to have relatives in the area.

The Impex GTG is a great venue to meet and see other TDIers.
