Should I join the caravan or should I get to Carlisle early and set up my mobile kitchen of awesome instead?!

Caravan! We'll help you set up your kitchen. Can I be sous chef? :lol:

GP'sEggoBaconTacoStand 02-21-2013 12:32 AM

Dan is kinda hesitant about doing the whole caravan thing. Every time we do it, something nearly goes terribly wrong for us. I think he and I will bring Cobra walkie talkies. Also, we have a **** ton of stuff we wanna set up. So it might just be better to be situated and ready for you bork bork mofos. That way after you work up a thirst or appetite from setting up camp and gear, there is a GP meal waiting for you.

If anyone needs a Volvo for the caravan, this one runs. Just buy it and pick it up before ghe caravan. My cheap ass got outbid...

So my dad is going to count up how many CB's he has to lend out. Looks like I'm getting an upgrade so that one of you n00bs can borrow the cheap one in my car right now. :-P Mike, I told him that you can also be trusted with one of the more expensive units since you're use to being responsible with expensive equipment and you're pretty local. He's got a couple that were $400-$500 back in the day, so other than for me, I don't think he's willing to lend out any expensive units to cars that might head back to Canada without hitting up his house first. :lol:

Pretty sure there's a farm animal noise box and a PA somewhere in the pile. So wiring those up. :-D

Tentatively add Bridget to this mess. Tentatively 245. Definitely tentatively.

We decided to forego wee-girl-bringin' for this year. We'll fling her at some cars next year when she's able to draw a wiring diagram from memory.

Can I come in my miata and hang with you guys till you go to Carlisle? Sold all my 240's but want to stay in the community

mikep 03-12-2013 04:52 PM

Miatas are welcome.

No worries, I actually don't need a loaner, but was getting all nostalgic and considered buying a retro one. I have 2-ways.

Did you get Brian's email about chincoteague? Looks like I will still do the caravan, but come back sat. night.

BassGuy 03-12-2013 09:45 PM

I have two people looking for a cb for me.

mikep 03-14-2013 03:06 PM

I'm out. See the Carlisle thread for whiny explanation.

BassGuy 03-21-2013 12:29 PM

Sweet!

Koston740 03-24-2013 06:52 PM

Is everyone meeting at the Perkins again this year?

wisturbo 03-24-2013 08:35 PM

I don't really want to drive, so who can I ride with? I live in NW Philly, a stones throw from 76.

Also, OP. can you list what day in the og post.

As far as I know, yes. Haven't confirmed that but I don't see why anyone wouldn't this year.

Done! Maybe one of the Philly crew (Josh, Leah, Mike, Tim, Jen, Jay etc.) can pick you up and bring you to Ikea. You can grab a seat with whoever you want before we leave Ikea. I'll call you out for lameness for not bringing your own car though. Lol.

wisturbo 03-24-2013 09:34 PM

Just don't feel like driving a V70R not worthy of a car show. If I caravaned with the Midwest crew from Mke, then I'd take the 242, which is a show car. In this instance I just want to meet people, take photos, and not drive alone.

sounds like you should be flying back here and driving the 242 then. :-P

FlyingTog 03-25-2013 09:38 AM

I should have an empty seat in my car. Lots of people should, actually. Make it to the South Philly Ikea and pick the car in which you want to ride. Lol. My Kaplhenke coilover suspension, M90 5 speed and potentially 3" exhaust with dump equipped 965, or Tim's 5.0L, 5 speed 745, or Josh's badass 855 T5 with a "shift kit", Tornetta's insanely ridiculous 245 autocross machine or Leah's monster truck 245.

wisturbo 03-25-2013 12:16 PM

Will Johnny Tran or Dominic Toretto be there? I can make it to South Philly real easy.

They will. Picking them up from KPHI when they come in from Japan.

PhillyTim 03-26-2013 10:46 AM

I'd offer a ride from NW no prob, but I just found out my manager scheduled me for training April 22-May 24.

This means I might not be able to take off work Friday.
Which means I might not be able to leave for Carlisle until 4:30 pm.
And that means I'd miss the caravan, unless I can get them to give me a day off (50-50).

Also, I could call in sick, but that may not go over very well if they just denied a vacation request for that day.

Worst case, Natalie and I will be there by about 7pm. Someone save us a tent spot.

FlyingTog 04-02-2013 06:04 PM

If you can't make the caravan, Tim, we'll save you a good tent spot with all our cool wagons! Who else is getting really stoked for this?? I'm pumped! I have so much to do to my car! Haha.
