i guessing our best option is to do it at mike's house again, as everyone seemed to enjoy it there...he lives in northwestern CT, so it would be quite a drive from maryland...but if you wanted to come up that would be great...and I can meet you when you get into southern CT and we can drive up in convoy :)

Once the weather gets a bit warmer, there will be a hybrid gathering at my place most every Saturday at the workshops.

My solar cooker should be fully operational for cooking stuff, (steaks,Hotdogs, burgers).

I have the big yard where we can park 20 or more cars.
We can also pull out my MPG route map and have a efficient driving contest.

I have been in many MPG races, and find that getting lost is always an issue, you are concentrating on driving technique, so the added distraction of trying to follow written directions is a big one. Get lost once, and there goes your chances for the best score. This map is my approach to making it easier to stay on route.
Join the fun, and learn more about how hybrids work.

I'm in Maryland and probably can't make the Ne England gatherings. If anything happens closer to me I'd be interested.

No new plans that I know of.... but if people are interested it putting another one together we can just get together someplace that can easily handle the parking like a mall or restaurant... unless someone with lots of parking is hosting it.... depending on when and where... I might be there...

ok that is a few people asking already...
klutzygirl , green1 , ikhoudvanu199 , epqsoq

with me that makes 5 people.... but I think we will loose a few due to the distances... I don't think there is a location central enough to be in range of everyone who has thus far voiced interest... I live in a small 1 bedroom apartment so my place is out... anybody else have lots of parking? ... or we can just pick a mall or restaurant that is well located for multiple people to make it.... Any ideas?

We could do it at my place, but I have been pretty busy with MIMA parts procurement, and I will continue to be for the next two weekends, which is why I have been quiet.
This week I will be working on the Insight on a stand, in preparation for an UDHEV technicial training class on the 20-23.
After that we can plan something here if you like. June 28-29??
My solar cooker is fully operational, I have a gas grill, so we could do a cookout?
MPG competition?
;)

I don't see Conn as a possible spot for me, but it sounds like fun.

I'm glad we are discussing the meeting idea more and I will wait for one :D nearer to Maryland.
