I'm not fan of the heat either, but I'm not really familiar with the Germantown area. I just picked it because it looked central from where we are all coming from. The Greene Turtle by me has covered patio with tables, so I expect there is a similar layout. Looking at Google maps, there are parks nearby, if that is the type of setting you prefer. We can also start earlier to avoid the heat. I'm open to pretty much any option.

Sorry for the slow reply, my interent went down yesterday.

I will probably be there then to beat the heat. I'll try to pick up a power inverter to power my laptop.

Do I need to bring tools for grilles for anyone?

Bummer, I'm in Bethesda right now. It would be cool to come see you guys but I fly back home on Sat at 10 am. I'm not sure if I'd be welcome in my Mustang rental (horrible) Maybe next time.

Someone please help Needsdecaf with his laptop. I think it hates him, so it refuses to allow E-Sys to work.

DreamCar, would like to make the meet as well but I've got to get home on schedule. My family is less than impressed about my travel schedule lately and I leave for San Antonio next Friday for a month. No family, no F-10, a crappy hotel room and another sh*tty rental car. Lucky me

I did drive by BMW of Rockville yesterday. I laughed because I remembered the name being used on the forum. Oh yeah, you MD, NJ, D.C. etc. drivers are lunatics. I've opened the trunk of the Mustang a few times so the driver behind me could get a little closer.

I picked up an inverter for my car. Hopefully it works well. I will also bring the discs that ImSW1 sent to me, along with the cable. Hopefully we can figure it out!

I'll try to come early too, due to the heat!

Bad news, but looking on the bright side, at least the kids get to have ice cream for breakfast.

Thanks to all who showed up and gave up their time to help the rest of us! Also thanks for showing off your mods, I'm looking for reflector covers asap!

Dream- thanks again for the coding, I'm enjoying the changes. I know you put a lot of hours into this.

Steve
