    Nope. I'm in NC. But some of the polkfolks here can vouch for my ability to drive damn near anywhere. Lightman Express...
    If you still have an opening for the PA gathering..let me know.

    Gear, Music and Booze. Dont have any fancy seperates anymore. Might Be a possibilty i could haul my 11T's and get my old M 7's from my buddy to Demo. Will see who else wants to attend and other suggestions that can be panned out beforehand. Ive got plenty of music i could bring as well. So who else is game?

    I'm under Canada, but I have a friend on this site whose in Tallahassee, not that close...but perhaps he'd be interested!

    Hey Caligula..

    How do you get from just outside of Phillie to Tampa! Job change? I wouldn't have thought that there was a big boom in new jobs in Florida?? Were you in Pa. long? Just wondering, I grew up a little over an hour north of Phillie.

    Yes I am still in process looking for a house. I am still waiting for the house i wanted but i found few other houses i liked too. Give me few more days to confirm.

    I would say the event might be in late Aug or sometime in Sept. However, i can meet you guys at some resturant, have some cold drinks and discuss plans we would like for the event. I like to discuss and prepare ahead.
