      I am one more step closer to driving to this event!
      Replaced the rear main seal and trans seals last weekend, along with clutch and related stuff. Now my car cruises down the road without smelling like burnt oil.

      Still on my list: convert to manual steering, swap my non A/C console back in, under-dash shelves, upgrade to 16v rear sway bar, possibly 35% window tint (no darker), hatch seal, sunroof seal, re-do rear brake system.

      wow my list is longer than I thought. Lots of work to do!

      I'm planning on being there this year as well, but unfortunately I'll be in late Friday night through sunday.. I planned on being there Thursday, but someone must have put an invisible drive through in at my work that I somehow keep driving through.. and we all know what happens in the drive through, they F you.

      BTW, Doug T - IM me, I'd like to talk to you about plans for Saturday, some stuff we talked about last year

      Greeat!!

      I was talking with Will the other day and (Doug, feel free to chime in) we were thinking it would be best to move our usual Friday nite pre-BBQ to Saturday night at the Bonelli campground which will help keep the whole weekend less "watered down" and also help to accommodate those who do camp by bringing the party to them with less tired folks from the night before.

      For those who want to camp, click here for reservations and select "wilderness tenting"

      Sat eve party is just fine with me. I have always supported the tradition of camping but the weather is not always the best in November. My original hope for the GTG was to have a big party on Saturday and keep the location as close as possible to the Sunday car event. If some folks don't want to drive home on Sat eve it works out to just camp, then stumble to the Sunday car event.

      I am up for some Saturday events too.

      Speaking of which, would anyone else be interested in going to the Petersen car museum?? I know this would take almost all day, but that's what my gf and I plan on doing....

      I'd also be up for that, too. Provided I don't have to work Sat, November 10...as that weekend draws nearer I'll find out for sure.

      The shirt orders don't start until October due to a few factors. We don't know the price until the design is finished. We don't know how many to make until we get all the pre-orders and that changes the price too.

      We could start a Pre, Pre-order list.

      For you people who have been there in the past, do you have any recommendations on where a dude and his friend can crash on Saturday night? This will be my first time there and I don't know the area.

      Something relatively close to the event; I have to work that Saturday and won't start my trek down south until about 5:30pm. Its about a six hour drive so we won't get there till late...if there's a hotel that is accomodating a group of people for this event and there is a discount, that'd be cool too!

      Any advice would be appreciated as it is now less than two months away, and I'm thinking I should probably book soon. TIA

      So what's the latest word on T-shirts.. is there a pre-pre-order list??

      I'm planning on being there with my gf again. I know she wants another shirt, then I did promise SciroccoHal that I'd get him one, so I'll be needing 3 shirts

      Just make sure you list your size. I am Weeks from starting the design so I am still not sure about the details.
