Original first post:
Alright fellow EcoModders, HHOTDI wants to start up a monthly meet in his area to "visit/compare notes and help each other with tools/equipment/parts and know how".
And he asked me to organize it.

What's been planned, is to start on March 2nd (Every first Sat of the month). And we'll meet, for the first meet-up, at Paul Bunyan's drive-in in Post Falls, Idaho at around 6:00 pm.

I know I'll be there! Anybody else?

Sounds great; only one tank away, but thus a little too far.
I hope you get some positive responses!

Well, if things pick up pretty good by Summer, you might change your mind.

I hope we get quite a few people to come!

You could.

We have several pretty good salvage yards in the Spokane area you could hit. And a few have websites with their current vehicles/parts too.

March will be here before we know it. And it's currently 25 days until our first meet!

Please do come by and share, or glean, info, stories, and ideas with us!! We'd love to have ya!!



BTW, I'm undecided if I should bring RAVadoodle, or my CRX? Any preference from the people coming?

(RAVadoodle has way more mods, but the CRX has potential and is just plain cool!)

A friendly reminder folks. One week away from our first Spokane/Coeur d'Alene area meet!

March 2nd (Every first Sat of the month). And we'll meet, for the first meet-up, at Paul Bunyan's drive-in in Post Falls, Idaho at around 6:00 pm.

Mike and I hope to meet a few EM people there!

To anyone lurking this thread: just go!

It's always great to meet other modders. Put a face to the avatar, check out different mods, talk technique, maybe even go for a drive to compare notes. It gets the eco-juices flowing.
