where there's a will, there's a way. i SHOULD be buttoning up my car tonight and doing some nice LSD burnouts. also, around here we got hammered with rain on friday night. i'm in no way worried about the salt that's left. especially after seeing how rough my rockers are already

Much as I'd like to my schedule isn't going to let me drive up this time. Maybe in the fall, plus I plan on attending the Spring Green car show in Aug. And a note to Gramps. I have a photo for you, so if you could let me know your address I'll get it in the mail.

I've been obsessively watching the National Weather Service forecast several times a day lately and snow had been mentioned for Madison (where I planned to stay tonight) so that has tipped the scales. I hate to be a party pooper but I'm not going to make it this time. I'll definitely plan for the Fall meet when chipdogg posts it. Everyone have a good time and someone please take pics!

Really ?? :? How much ??

I haven't checked the weather - Seeing how we are having a late spring, we shouldn't be surprised.
I am planning to drive on up with the snow tires on the car. :D

Skiltz called dibs on them- sorry. I'm still at home (12:01 a.m. on Saturday) so I definitely won't be there. It just came down to the last minute for a decision and the forecast just didn't look promising. When you have a long drive there, you have to plan in advance... I couldn't count on subtle changes in the weather there while enroute. I'll be up in the Fall. :thumbup:

Sorry you changed your mind. I know if I could go I'd love to, but after being off work last week (no paycheck for me next week) I can't afford to take another day off.

On a side note...darn you Scott!

Well the car isn't running. Not sure why either. Gotta figure this out before I can go anywhere so it's not looking good for me making it. :(

I'd like to see some pictures too. I would have liked to go and meet everyone, but it just wasn't in the cards for me this time. Maybe next time
