EM Meet up

RH77 and I had a meet up in Wichita the other day. We were both in the city on business. Quite a fun time to sit down and talk FE without the dear in the headlights look. If anybody is in the same city you ought to try and hook up it van be very enjoyable.

My work-travel schedule allowed another meetup, so this was year #2 that I had the honor to sit down and talk FE with Laz. I completely agree, it's refreshing to talk about fuel economy without people trying to run away or change the subject.

If you live near an EcoModder, or you're traveling their direction, why not set up a meet? It's Good Times...

We'll see who has the best rental car numbers here in a couple weeks

hmm. I think there was one guy that was near. I think it was one of them toyota taco guys. Maybe EM should hold a huge meet sometime in the middle of somewhere, and it'd be like a bunch of those ant's that gather in that candybar you left outside yesterday.

then we'll have this hummer see... and we get a bunch of saws and forklifts... oh and golfcart batteries... and we have a jolly good time.
