Just throwing this out there to see if there is interest...

I'll be passing through Atlanta on my way to Florida on Thursday October 17th around dinner time. The very first time I made this trip as a member of the OS, Kevin (ssmedt) and Jon (jsprewell) met with me for a mini-meet. Since this is likely to be the last time I drive to Florida, I was thinking that a reunion mini-meet would be cool. I was also hoping to see some new faces as well. This is open to anyone who wants to come. :thumbsup:

Absolutely. If you can suggest a place for a meet on that side. The only thing that is not flexible for me is the date and time. Of course, I could always stop on the way back instead. I will be passing back through on Saturday November 2nd.

I like to try to make it past Macon on the first day, but it depends on how late I stay for the meet.

where in florida are you going?
Pinellas Park. I've been making this trip almost every year since my mom moved down in 1990.

That's great, Larry. Hope you can make it. There's a chance that we'll be moving it to the East side of Atlanta though.

Just wanted to let everyone know, I might not be making the trip to Florida this year. I will update as I'm able.

(Please have the meet anyway...the Atlanta area is long overdue!)

We have to put down a time and a place!
The time will still be 6:00. I'll try to get there a little earlier. But when you're making a 600 mile road trip, it's hard to be exact. I guess the location will depend on Kevin. If having it on the East side will increase his chances of going, I think we should try it.

This is going to be October 17th right?


The mechanic better have the Envoy done by then! :mad:

Either way, I'll be coming.

(and if the Envoy is done, I hope to have a few more mods I've had laying around done also)

Yep. That's it.



I've made the changes to the thread title and post #1.

I don't know if Sam is bringing the SS or not but lol with only 1 truck this is not an official meet by the OS standards :rotfl:

Maybe I should leave the rainier at home so I could be like the cool kids:crazy:

If Sam brings the Tahoe, then doesn't that count for GMTNation? :wink:

Besides, I'm hoping I get it Tuesday or early Wednesday. I drove by the shop today and it looked like they were working on it. So, I'm going to stop by tomorrow and see what the timeframe is. For their sake, I hope they are further along than what I am thinking...

I can't stay very late either. I usually try to make it South of Macon before stopping for the night.

Head count - just me.

A big thanks to Kevin (and family) and John for meeting up. :grouphug:

Unfortunately the visit was shortened due to uncooperative traffic. :mad:

Sorry, no pictures of this one.
