      Well it has been awhile and as we are slowly starting to emerge from our winter cocoon, it is time for a little GTG.
      Everyone is welcome, of course. The more, the merrier.
      Nothing but a meet, greet and eat.
      Address:
      2020 Timothy Rd.
      Athens, GA 30606

      If you don't know it, map it.
      See you there.Mav.

      I don't believe I have anything planned that weekend. Time will tell. So, count me in, and I'll see if Matt will bring his new Passat Wagon as well.

      I might be there, but given that the weather is finally warming up enough to work on projects and that I finally have enough money to finish my suspension... who can say for sure.

      I think I caught a glimpse of the Mav-mobile on Barnett Shoals Monday afternoon.

      There are a couple junk yards up on US 441 almost to Commerce. I'm not sure if they are of the 'pull a part' variety or if they even have VWs there, but they certainly have a bunch of stuff. I'm always looking for ways to not drive from Athens to Duluth. I can't stand 316...

      With that unintelligible ramble, I assume you are for the Saints in the big game.
      I am pulling for the Colts as I am an AFC guy, but as long as it is a good game, either is OK with me.

      It turned out to be a good game and congrats to the Saints.

      If we ever start doing tech days again, that would be awesome. I am planning on replacing the oil pump, timing chains, and rocker arm assembly on my truck sometime soon.

      As this Saturday and Sunday is Valentine's Day weekend, I would say that would not be a good idea for us married folks.

      Let's do a Tech Day at my place on Sunday, Feb 21st starting around noon. Garage and extra hands will be available.

      Sounds like something I might be able to attend. The truck is running again but I still need to do some maintenance type stuff on it, like change the transmission grease, replace some gaskets, and replace thermostat/coolant flush.
