Default Tucson meet results

Hi everyone,

The original 2013 Tucson thread was really long so I wanted to post something showing how it went in the "Social" section and show the results with some pictures, below is a copy of Permalink #118 of the oringinal thread:

https://www.insightcentral.net/forums...tucson-12.html

What more can I add that hasn't been said..... Fantastic time meeting and sharing with everyone there. Thanks Jim for sharing your home with the rest of us. Thanks Rush for setting up the logistics of everything in Tucson. Thanks Willie for the pizza lunch, and last but not least thanks Matt for sharing your "Insight" on batteries and packs and how to replace the PTC stip.

So here are some pictures that I captured, there was so much going on in multiple little groups that it was hard to catch all the discussions and technical discussions. I know I missed a lot but hope this gives everyone some ideas of what happened.

First the gathering in general, we had I believe 14 Insights show up along with 1 Mitsubishi electric car and 1 Lotus. Okay the Lotus sounds odd but the owners Insight is down right now for a TDI engine conversion.

Our friend John from Minnesota got the oil filter for driving further than anyone else.
Mitch won an Insight license plate holder.
Don won a $25 gift card to Auto Zone
I won the $50 off of the OBDII C&C reader (Peter, I'll PM you later about how to get this)

Question: Who had the steering wheel knob with the Insight insignia on it??? I wanted to get a picture of it but missed it. Can you let us know who it was and can you post a picture of it and where you got it from. (reply on page 13 with link)

Thanks for posting this info. However, as much as I enjoy seeing the Little Red Rocket behind a cactus, I would like to see some of your other photos but can't because many (all?) of the links you posted are identical. I can grope around in your Flickr album to see more of your photos, but they don't contain the captions that you have typed in your posting.

Aisbell,

Thanks for the heads up, when I copied it over the links didn't work, then I messed them up worse. All better now.
