Hey,
I'm not hosting. ( and my mom is surely not)
I live in Virginia.
I was only saying if you go north in the state or head for the Tri-State area. (NJ, NY, PA). I have somewhwere to stay for free.
Some one else needs to be in charge and I will attend.
Gives me a reason to make my yearly trek to visit my mom.

For a moment it semed as if you wanted me to host it on the lake.

Whew!!!!!!!.

glad we cleared that up.

You sure you don't want to host?

I can just image the phone call: "Hey, I'm coming up on XX. You don't mind if I show up with a dozen random people from the internet, do you?" "...."

Ok, so that general area seems to be reasonable for most of us to get to. Anyone have any suggestions on a more specific location?

Yeah my mom would love that.
I'm thinking her answer would be;
"!!!HAVE YOU LOST YOUR FU..ING MIND!!!"
BTW she lives on Espanong Road,
Two houses from the lake.
There is a state park on the lake and another Camping park up the mountain.
I learned to drive on that lake in 1975
It was frozen solid and my Grandfather took me out there to let me get some hands on and quit pestering my dad.

I'm in south Jersey, probably about 2.5 hr's for me, I'd be up for it, but it's all going to depend on the weekend, etc... I've been wanting to do a trip sometime to see what my car will do with mostly highway miles.

It's funny, none of us minding driving far as heck because we all want to put our highway mpg to the test, haha.

This is the ONLY forum where you will find people who are trying to save gas, so eager to spend some! Thankfully, none of us really waste that much no matter how far we drive in our econo-cars.

We could have a little competition to see who gets the best mileage on the way there!

(hint: I bet I'll win, )

You haven't seen my new magnet and grappling hook set up have you

Yes it is ironic that I wouldn't mind spending a little gas to prove how much I can save
